As usual, I have about 20 "works in progress" on the crafting front. I can't help it. If I'm working on a project and get an idea for another project, I have to start the new project. (If I don't, I'll forget the idea.)
This feedsack sampler is almost finished.
I've added a bandana backing and as soon as I add a strap or handle, it will be my new flea market purse. Bandanas and bright colors aren't usually my style, but I had fun making this, so I know I'll have fun using it.
This is a little cross stitch sachet that just needs a back and some lavender to get it up and running.
I can't resist a red and white quilt, even if it's, well....falling apart. A lot of the red fabric in this quilt has frayed away, but all the quilting is hand stitched, so I felt like I had to rescue and repurpose it.
This is what I have so far. I cut off a square of the quilt and added some strips of a French General print. I'm not sure what the next step is, but that's part of the fun.
And since it's almost summer and the temps are headed for the 90's, I thought it would be a good time to start knitting a wool scarf. Crazy, I know. But if you're a knitter, you understand that sometimes you just want the feel of a good yarn on your needles.
As proof that I CAN finish projects, I do have a couple pieces published in the Jun issue of Sew Somerset.
Both pieces used mini charm packs. I love charm packs, they give you the fun of having all the fabrics in a collections, and they are already cut for you. As someone who is challenged to cut a straight line, I appreciate that.
I received an advance copy of Sew Somerset a couple weeks ago, but I've heard from several friends that it's available at Barnes & Noble.
