It's been a busy crafting week at Green Acres. After an hour-and-a-half of cleaning and sorting to get Christmas fabrics put away and supplies stored where I could find them again, my "studio" (as I call my corner of the basement) still looks disheveled, but I'll work on new shelving and storage later.
Right now there are projects that HAVE to be done. Like finishing 200 mini quilts. I have over 150 cut out, and about 50 of those have tops assembled, but still a long way to go.
There are also projects that I WANT to do. I have been itching to get back into sewing garments, something I haven't really done for since high school home-ec. class. I recently saw a request posted on Facebook by Dave's cousin, asking for donations of "frilly" dresses to be sent with a missionary to Uganda. When I asked for details of "frilly", she said that all donations were accepted and needed, but the young girls really like receiving dresses with ruffles and frills. I can't resist the chance to make adorable pink dresses. So I purchased a pattern labeled "Easy to Sew" and a variety of girly fabrics/trims. I have one dress started, but the verdict is still out. I'll let you know next week.
Just out of curiosity, I dug through my cedar chest and found a plastic loom that I used for making placemats many years ago and I'm trying the spool-knitting technique on it. It would at least make a human-size scarf. Results in a future Needlework Tuesday post.
