Project #2: A friend asked me Friday night If I could make an apron as a gift in time for a birthday party - the next day! With no restrictions on fabric color, I was able to use what I had on hand and got it done on time.
Project #3 was a simple idea that I found on Pinterest. Inexpensive towels from the dollar store and scraps of ribbon become travel cases for toothbrush/paste or other potentially messy products.
My final craft didn't involve any stitching, but I'm including it anyway. Again - thank you, Pinterest, for the inspiration. The recipe box in the picture above became a perpetual calendar. The box contains an index card for each day of the year.
For my version, I purchased 12 vintage postcards and adhered them to the divider cards that came with the box, using double-stick tape. I still need to print out the names of the months to cover the recipe categories, but I have begun making entries. I'll report back in about ten years.
I also found time to finish cutting the 360 strips (from 360 different fabrics) that I need to make my "book quilt" and made progress on my mini-quilts, but this post is long enough - so I'll save that for next week.
