Create A Great Day
Sewing Monday grew out of our Monthly Sewing Sunday group. My friends, Ellie and Amy and Bev and I congregate in my workroom and we work on lots of different things at one time and share ideas and get inspired. It a great evening.
Sometime my wonderful husband makes us a special dinner !
Last night, I worked on a Sheep order That took over the table and see that hostess Apron in A is for Apron book by Nathalie Mornu book?
I am going to make one like that-for fun
These are some chicken potholders that I have listed at my ETSY shop. I have a lot more colors ready to stitch up.
A couple of Monday's ago I made this pillowcase and embroidered the edge. It came out pretty cute!
I am working on an entry for the blacksheep gathering coming up in two weeks. I say I but I am only half of the creation-or maybe a third!! This bag is a collaboration between Barb and myself and of course Esteban who grew the wool to begin with. It is his fleece that I had spun commercially, then Barb knitted the bag from our favorite bag pattern, I felted it in the washer and now I am embellishing it with some fun needle-felting....I better get on it if I want it to be finished
Amy was working on Aprons-and of course I did not take a picture of her stack that she was serging and sewing-here is one that I did-it will be available on ETSY soon!
Ellie was quilting her beautiful birds and flowers Quilt and I will get a picture of that up soon! Saving the niftiest for last..Bev, was learning a new technique-using roving from our Navajo Churro sheep, she braided it then felted it and dried it in the washer, then sewed it into a rug......Isn't that the best? I want to do one for our living room!!!!!!! Totally washable and should wear like iron.
We created a great day...now it is your turn!
