Still working on getting my groove back and decided that I'd better take my husband's advice. When things get a little too much he says, "Now Karen, how do you eat an elephant?" To which we all know the answer is: one bite at a time. Yeah, yeah. OK.
I did finish the 2nd of the dishcloth trio. The square one has soooooo much texture to it that it should be able to scrub a million germs off dishes, or bodies! HA! These are great projects for that quick, I need a little FAST gratification, since most things take more like days, weeks, or months to finish.
The Celebrity Apprentice
is on tonight, so #3 should get started, if not finished. Then to the PO they shall go. :)
Wanted to try my hand at putting quilt blocks together, and believe you me, I am NOT my mother! Darn it anyway. If she were alive to see what I did, she'd be horrified! This block is way below my personal expectations of myself. But the colors and theme were working, so I kept on going with it. One day it will be a large portfolio journal cover for a blogging friend. Really, who doesn't like sunflowers and pinwheels and bright yellows/greens?!?! This is called Pinwheel #9
, for what reason I have no idea, but pattern is free - just click.
This journal 'vest' was a project I did last weekend when I decided to stay in the depths of the dungeon of the basement. Watched old movies. Mother's Day. Just wanted to be alone I guess. But anyway, this little purple tweed gem came out of that weekend and just needed to be sewn into a journal cover. So that was accomplished and posted on Three Sisters' Marketplace
The back and insides are a pretty neat butterfly batik fabric that I'd, yes, been hoarding. DO NOT MAKE A TV SHOW ABOUT MY HOARDING FABRICS! I'm definitely not as bad as the fabric cutter at Joann's. (yes, she spilled that little secret the last time I was there)
And to end the weekend, this was the sunset that I got to enjoy last evening off our duplex deck. If those houses weren't in the way across the road, it would have been perfect. But still, it was very pretty. The camera (as usual) didn't pick up all the colors that were really there. But you get the point, right? :)
