Despite the surprise extra days of leisure due to weather, there hasn’t been a lot of sewing lately – I’ve been on a knitting and spinning kick – but I do have one small sewing project I can check off the WIP list.
These four placemats have joined their kin in a kitchen drawer, replacing some woven ones that were irretrievably stained. A fun, quick project that used up a bunch of scrap strips and batting pieces. I stitched each strip to the batting as I went along, so minimal topstitching was needed to keep the backing in place. Of course, the tops lingered on the work table for a month before I actually got those backs sewn on . . .
Meanwhile, I’m still dunking fiber into dye pots.
And I’m completely obsessed with how the colors of handspun are coming together in my cardigan knitting project.
And then there is watching the snow fall – 8″ since it started last night. A tremendous amount for where we live in Oregon!
