So I am combining a couple of the posts I would have made into one while I have a few minutes of "bonus"- very early in the morning- data to use. When I have had time to play in the sewing room, I have been playing. Kind of silly when I'm sure I have things I should be working on. I'm tired of deadlines and have-to's at the moment.
I had to move the giant bin of felted sweaters for some reason and dug through them in one of those "I should get rid of these" moments. I ran across the instructions for these.
Easy, but not really quick. I'll probably use them as Christmas gifts. I don't know for who(m?)
Recently Kiara came to me because she had bumped her head, and needed an ice pack. I asked her where mom keeps the boo-boo bunny. She had no idea what that was.
As long as I had been digging through the books of stuffies, I decided I needed this creature, from this book. (I have always felt they had me in mind when they added the subtitle)
The patterns are tiny, so you enlarge them to a size you want. I think I want this guy to be a bit bigger. His mouth is a pocket!
(Or you can just let him stick his tongue out at people.)
I have also gone back to making some "opulent ornaments" - or Sparkly Balls, as I call them.
I still don't love the ones I've made from this fabric. I have a lot of the fabric, too. Hmmm, maybe a spring dress instead?
I just can't get pictures of them where the sparkles show, but they're still pretty!
This is the quilt I made for my demo at Guild last week. (Suddenly even the pictures I post from my camera are turning sideways. I don't know why and nothing I do stops it. Some days technology is just not my friend.)
I love this heart pattern I found in one of my machine quilting books. I improvise the border to match.
I cannot even try to make a decent "green" segment this time. I will only say if you care about the threat of climate change, make your voice heard. People who think it's myth need to be shown that there are enough of us who believe the science, so they know we will not allow them to turn back all the progress we have been making in recent years.
I am grateful for:
Keeping in touch
Being someone's therapy
Sewing time (always!)
My new frost free freezer
The days work is not a threat to my health
