WIPs


I finished a project! It's a shawl but I'll be using it as a scarf. It wasn't too difficult and I really love the effect of the subtle yarn colors. I made the ruffle a little wider than the directions called for. I figured I had the yarn and a wider ruffle would only enhance the shawl. I'm happy I did it! I wish the built in sequins showed up a little better in this picture.


Here's my progress on my wall hanging so far. The sewing machine is next to be appliqued. I'm having a fun time with this.  I think I've missed the quiet and relaxing art of applique. So nice to be back!

Trying to figure out what to make for Thanksgiving. I usually make 2 desserts. We're eating at my parent's house.  Anyone have any ideas??

  4. What a pretty shawl. I like the subtle way the stripes changed size as the shawl got bigger.
    Very cute kitty applique too! Is that Lily or Molly? :-)

Here's the vintage quilt with the binding all attached! I can't believe this quilt is finished. It felt like a privilege to me ...
