My sister and I started a fused fabric present for my octopus crazy niece. Still in progress, with a lot of buttons-for-suckers and quilting to add. The purple/green spotty batik was perfect for it.
It is turning into a gorgeous spring around here, which led to pulling out some warm colors of cotton floss:
Some bright buttons:
And some yellow fabric:
I got out the stitch dictionary and started circling:
And kept it up for a couple evenings:
And a mini-mini-wall hanging is ready to brighten up a corner of our house somewhere.
(So very far from an original idea. Inspired by a Pinterest picture I came across, right down to the three columns of fabric. I’m going with the “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” excuse.)
I have two finished tops to quilt, at least three tops in progress, a half knit blanket, a half knit scarf, a purse back pack to sew for my mom, and four or so wall hangings that need various amounts of work done to finish them.
So I started a new project.
I did at least finish sewing together the half square triangle quilt top before I started picking out sunny colors of embroidery floss and buttons.
