This week's crafting efforts
This week’s Sew Crafty Friday is very much a “work in progress” day. Very little actual work got done. I did complete one dishcloth in the Fiesta Ombre color. I’ve started another in shades of green.
I also completed a crocheted snowflake, (#7 out of 12 which I want to make) but won’t post a picture of that until I get them all done.
I got a good bit done on the last flour sack dishtowel, but still have the lettering and a few flowers to do. I had to buy a disappearing fabric marker to draw the markings with, as this particular transfer came out so light it is nearly impossible to see it. I’ve been just trying to guess at where they are, but I purchased the marker last night and things are coming along better now.
And I’m hoping to complete a set of 4 fabric coasters to give as a hostess gift on Sunday, along with a (completed) dishcloth. It was really neat -- I had cut out most of the squares for the coasters, but I really needed a yellow/gold print to go along with the other colors. I was in Walmart last night doing grocery shopping, but knew I could not take time to have fabric cut. So I decided that if I really needed this color, the Lord would have it in the remnant bin all ready for me. And you see what was in that bin waiting for me!
If any of you would like to check out others’ crafty projects, head on over to Waiting for Him, Shereen’s blog, and get involved in Sew Crafty Fridays.
Sure am hoping for a more productive week next week!
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.
