Sew Crafty Friday for September 14
This has been a real “work in progress” week. I have worked some on sewing the apron, some on putting together a cookbook for a gift, some on crocheting a dishcloth and embroidering a dish towel (not to mention decluttering my fabric totes and washing up a bunch of fabric) but I cannot point to any one project and say it is finished. So I’m just going to show a couple of my works-in-progress.
Here is my cookbook so far -- just a decorated binder, a stack of recipe pages -- some decorated, some not -- and a bunch of magazine cut-outs to use to decorate the pages before putting them in page protectors.
And this is the cross-stitch sampler I’m working on for myself. I started this on our train trip last year. No pressure to get it done. I will occasionally work on this in the evenings to relax.
Hope others have had a more productive week than I! If you’ve accomplished some crafting this week-- even a work in progress, then do head on over to Shereen’s blog and get in on Sew Crafty Friday! We would love to have some other ladies join in the fun.
Looking forward to finishing some of these projects in the coming 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.
