Sew Crafty Friday for August 31
I haven’t really accomplished a lot this week, craft-wise. But during a day at the beach on Tuesday, I managed to finish 2 projects.
First, a dishcloth, in the “Daisy Ombre” color. I really like this; it is a nice restful color and would work with a lot of people’s kitchens. In the same photo, my first flour-sack towel in the “Fine Chinaware” set. Isn’t it a pretty design? I’m so pleased with how it turned out.
Next, I managed to finish off the apron pocket I embroidered last week and get it sewed onto the side piece of the apron. I think it’s looking quite nice! I’ve got most of the second pocket embroidered, but the hard part (the flower petals) is still to come.
I’ve also started another crocheted snowflake which I think will be quite pretty and is fairly easy -- I may well make the last 2 snowflakes from that pattern also.
And I’ve also started yet another dishcloth -- those things are addictive! -- in the “Potpourri” color.
And I’ve begun the first of 2 personalized cookbooks, but don’t really have much to show for that yet. Maybe next week!
And that about does it for this week’s crafting...
Oh, and if you’ve done any crafting this week -- even if it’s just a work in progress so far, I encourage you to drop in at Shereen’s blog and share your work with the rest of us. It really is fun and a great encouragement to share our crafts and ideas with others.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
