Let's get right to it, shall we?
The fabrics for my Dead Simple quilt arrived yesterday and I can't wait to get started. I modified my palette just a bit. Here is the original:
So far I have decided to use Azure instead of Sky, and Coal instead of Medium Gray to get a little more contrast. I'm considering switching out the Tangerine for a different orange. The tangerine is quite, um...vivid. But, I may just stick with it and see what happens. It could surprise me.
I'm still working on my Christmas Tree "Pants" for the Sew, Mama, Sew Holiday Sew-Along. Here is what I have so far:
I haven't done this week's sewing yet, but there really isn't much to it so I may just wait and do it when we get our instructions for the next step. I still need to pick out my backing and binding fabrics, too.
I've recently decided to attempt to learn crochet and am diving right in to try this project:
I got my yarn and a new crochet hook last weekend, so I'm hoping to get started on this in the next few days. I really have no idea what I'm doing here, so any tips would be appreciated.
One thing that simply MUST be started (and hopefully finished) this week is Halloween costumes! I'm one of those weirdos who thinks that Halloween costumes and birthday cakes should both be homemade. Maybe after a few more years I'll change my tune, but so far I'm still having fun with it. Last year we had a frog and a chicken. This year we'll have a skunk, a handyman, and possibly a goldfish if I get my act together. If not, we'll have two handymen, which honestly I'm hoping for. So much easier than a goldfish!
|Even in their costumes they insisted on wearing boots...|
After preschool pickup this morning I will be heading west with the boys to visit my parents...8 hours (please God no more than 8 hours) in the car with three little boys under the age of 5. Pray for my sanity.
As always, I'm linking up with Lee for WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. Thanks!
