Sew Crafty Friday for November 30

I haven’t really accomplished much crafting this week, but wanted to share what I have done. Lord willing, I plan to spend the afternoon crafting, so maybe next week I will have more to share.

First, the 5th flour sack towel in the “Fine China” set is finished! Just 2 more to go!

And then, here is another photo ornament. Would you believe, after I had it all hot glued together, that I noticed the piece of cotton batting (which is supposed to go between the fabric and the cardboard) still on my desk? The glue was dry by then and there was no undoing it. So, I decided to go ahead and finish the ornament and keep it for myself, since the photo was already on it and everything.

Someone had suggested that I try and make the captions on the computer and just transfer them to fabric as well, rather than trying to write them by hand with a fine-point Sharpie as I did on the first one. So I did find a good font and tried this. I got the label on the ornament crooked on this one, but the labels themselves turned out very well and I think I’ll be pleased I did them this way.

At the rate I’m going I will have many photo ornaments for myself, and none to give away as gifts, if I continue to keep all of the mistakes!

What about you? If you have managed to accomplish or even start any crafting, then head on over to Waiting for Him and share your projects. Shereen and others will be eager to see what you have to share.

Happy Crafting!


  1. Wow, I sure admire your perseverence. The flour sack towels are coming along great. I'm not sure I'd have that much patience, LOL!
    And I like the photo ornament. I'm sure it's great even without the stuffing.

  2. That ornament will look fine without the batting, I'm sure. I have never thought of making photo ornaments. Thanks!


  3. Thanks for stopping by, ladies, and for your encouraging comments about my work.

    I'm glad you like the photo ornaments. They are turning out to be more work than I expected, but I am going to be making quite a few of them. It's really fun to see the old photos put to use like this.


Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my kitchen table! I love company here in my kitchen, so be sure to leave a comment so I'll know you've visited! I'll answer your questions and comments here on the blog unless you request otherwise.
