my head is spinning...
(this version on youtube has the perfect visual!)
this is the song that has been roaring around my head this past week as i flitted from one project/technique to another, all the while thinking about many more
i finally got back to my "wrapping cloth"
which i am actually going to finish as quilted wall-hanging so it can go in our upcoming local quilt show
corners cut from old stained napkins and doilies, now adding embroidery to some of them
(the lazy daisy flower and french knots on the one at the far right were added by me)
before i added this row of "points" with a lacy edge i had decided this block was going to be my least favourite
now i am sure i will like it best
call me fickle
(insert heavy sigh here)
i attached the strip of lace with french knots and now i wish i hadn't
should have been web stitches
think i'll add them in between, on the section with the slit opening - that will be fun, stitching over those openings - yeesh, i do it to myself!
this little pointy corner makes up for that though - it turned out exactly as i hoped for
give, and take
i have gotten this far with the next round of pages for the cc book project - see the lace?
i love it - now that turned out better than i thought it would too!
the cheesecloth also makes me pretty darn happy!
some laces worked better than others, some more obvious, others less so
thinking about adding some hand embroidery to these
...and also thinking i might be wise to leave well enough alone
the heart i spoke of trying - simple, and wouldn't this be pretty attached to the front of a card?
these just might be my christmas cards for this year
liking this one best of all
also this week i layered four table-toppers, now ready for quilting
(i am doing an in-depth study of table toppers and have made seven in the last little while - they're like little quilts and so addictive!)
crocheted a scarf
did some sketching
worked on the frost queen
started another table topper and cut out a lap quilt
cleaned two closets
emptied two fabric bins
completely sorted and re-organized my ribbons and trims - that was a nasty job!
dealt with my wool situation - yes, it WAS a situation
organized all my "stuffed" supplies
got depressed about how many things i want to make, how long they will all take and how little time there is
and then i sat down for lunch and a chat today with a good friend and
got happy again, thinking about how lucky i am
and i realized it was time for a cool change
(and this is the most amazing video ever!)
