Though I haven't been doing any garment sewing - which I need to do, I have been having fun with my Thrift Store box of fabric. *smile*
I've made 2 new (striped) pillows for the sofa in front of the fireplace.
Christmas pillows, so this was a fast 'n easy project.
(Note to self - cut the fabric 16 1/2" square, 1/4" seams, and it's perfect for these two inserts.)
Oh, and what is in that pretty red wooden box there?...
Shetland Lace Scarf I've been spending so much time with. I must be a s-l-o-w knitter as this seems to be taking me forever! The yarn's been giving me such fits, I finally thought to check the yarn's Ravelry page, and sure enough it's been discontinued. Not surprising. It does not hold its 'twist' and it's like knitting with two strands of yarn - one fuzzy and one like a cording.... hard to keep track of the stitches. I'm about 60% done. Tom made me this little wooden box too and painted it 'barn red'... my favorite color. Now I have a couple of pretty boxes to hold my work-in-progress projects.
Gummy, the Cockatiel, did not last long in my sewing room. The dust and dander she created was simply too much, so she's back in Melissa's room, where I think she feels more comfortable anyway.
