I’ve had this fabric for a while, and never could seem to figure out what to use it on… I didn’t want to waste it on just anything. I had a brown version as well, which I used to re-cover my ironing board (rats- forgot a pic) and figured I’d try my hand at a simple purse with the beige version. I don’t have a pattern for the style I’m imagining in my head so I’m just winging it here… may turn out interesting. There’s a taller pocket on the other side of the lining, too.
Started a new My Mark design. Now that’s like 6 of them I have started… will I ever finish one?! BTW, I (obviously) gave up on the Valentine’s Day Blackwork. It was just too busy of a time for me, but now I’m ahead for next year, right? And this pic is crummy, really. I’m stitching on that yummy Bittersweet Lite hand dyed Jobelan.
Last night I put a few stitches in this LHN design; I think I’ll like the green. (I’m using Dinky-Dyes cotton floss in Gum Leaves) If I finish, this will only be the second Little House design I’ve stitched. I like them, I buy them, I have many of them in my stash… but when it comes down to picking something new to start, I almost never choose a LHN! And the few I have started are never finished, not even close. Weird. Maybe I like the idea of them more than the actual stitching of them.
**I’ve also made a start on 3 comfort dolls, although they are not ready to have their pictures taken yet… they screamed and hid their faces when I approached them with the camera.* *
And, finally, here is my Katie showing off some of my WIPs. Not counting the aforementioned My Mark starts, the four projects in the living room, the Christmas ornament under my daily planner (so I will remember to work on it… been there untouched for about 3 weeks now), and the “to go” project in my car, I have 16 things in my WIP box.
I better get off the computer.
