Last night I said I would take some pics of my latest project, and today I did. I'm sad to say this is the ONLY project I've finished this month.
Ta-da! My new curtain.
This is from this pattern, sent to me by the lovely Bell. I opted to not do a full quilt, but only something to cover the bottom half of my window.
Pictures are always clickable for a closer look. Oh spellcheck doesn't like "clickable". Or even "spellcheck".
I am seriously smitten with this. I also opted to not do the cornerstones, as my piecing skills have deteriorated over time. I wish the colors were truer - these are repro '30's pink fabrics. I probably could have just used two rows, as I move the curtain down for daytime, but I love it. The more daisies the better, I say.
The other day I got some hugs in the mail. ROYAL mail.
These colours are not true either - the actual wristwarmers are MUCH richer looking.
The lovely Midge from Soggibottom made these and sent them to me. Honestly, they're like wearing a hug - they are the softest wool, in the most mouth-watering colors. They come almost to my elbow and keep me SO warm! Now my fingers don't go numb while I'm blogging, and you know that's important! Thank you darling Midge, they are getting a workout for sure!
Look, I can hold a mug with them.
I can type with them!
Egads please don't look at the filthy keyboard! Darn that maid, she's fired. Go check out Midge's blog, she has a new free pattern for the sweetest stuffie bunny you've ever seen.
Is anyone else having a hard time getting motivated this year? I am. I'm seeing all kinds of terrific stuff that you've all been doing, and I'm only a little bit tempted to join in. I'm not sure what I want to do - draw, design, stitch [I have been doing stitcheries - in the evening], break out the quilt books and try something new, I just don't know. I have a gazillion ideas for quilt designs, and just the thought of putting them to fabric makes me tired. I guess I'll just not worry about it, and relax, and watch lots of dvd's and listen to audiobooks while I mindlessly stitch. After all, it doesn't get much better than that, does it!
