:: Hi ::
this fabric from Shay. I picked them up again the other night when I couldn't sleep. I'll be turning this into a pillow. I'll post a picture when I finish.
I've been able to get some machine sewing time lately and it's been great. I have a project coming up for Benartex. A lap/throw sized quilt. It's a happy, bright quilt and I can't wait to show it to you.
If you've seen me on Pinterest lately, you may have noticed I went on a crazy peg doll / clothespin doll pinning spree not too long ago! I'm going to be making one of my girls a dollhouse and peg dolls for Christmas. This is one that I made for my pillow swap partner. I didn't realize how shaky my hand was until I tried painting the little details on this. I used to paint cute, small wooden things a lot when my oldest was younger. But I haven't done it in years. I'm shakier and my eyes are getting worse as I get older. But they are still cute, I think!!!
Thanks for the nice comments on my last post. Seems a lot of you like the crocheted edging on things!!! I've been asked a few times how I put the edging on the fabric. I guess very often people use an awl. But I don't have an awl. What I do is blanket stitch around the whole piece and then crochet the scallops into the stitches. I learned this from Heather. She makes the prettiest things with crocheted edges!
