When Karla and I put together our e-zine Romantic White Christmas, we scanned dozens of images- a lot more than are used in the projects. We've included those images as an extra bonus part of the class.
Karla even put together a couple of collage sheets. I printed one of the collage sheets on fabric this afternoon and spent a nice part of the day stitching in my easy chair, watching Gilmore Girls on DVD.
Gilmore Girls is one of those shows I didn't catch in primetime but I'm glad to have found it now.
I made a little collection of pillows, hanging ornaments and gift bags. Almost everything was sewn by hand. I practiced some feather stitch but otherwise kept it pretty simple and didn't get too hung up on making anything "perfect".
I stuck mostly with a "low color" palette, but Santa had to get some red accents.
While I had my sewing stuff out, I started working on some coffee dyed lace purses. I haven't decided if I like them, or if they look like something that might be used to wipe up spilled coffee....and are they suppose to still smell like coffee?
