Good morning friends, I have been trying to find a sewing pattern to make a project book to keep projects tidy. I finally found one on ESTY, ( a pdf) that used vinyl but I just changed it around for fabric and worked on it yesterday, it is a bit smaller than i had envisioned but next one I'll just add a few more inches, overall I am pleased, it has 6 pockets, 3 in the front, 3 inside. Very proud of myself , especially since I did a zipper and it looks pretty good, not professional but every day I am learning something new about my abilities (I need more practice :) ) I haven't driven my husband crazy yet either. He works over an hour away and has 10+ hour days so it leaves me a lot of time to stitch while the kids are away.
I also started a birthday present for my mother in law, it is Soleil Ardent from Isabelle Haccourt Vautier, it done on a Khaki 32 ct linen and the colors are orange, I love the colors so far. Lastly, but the snowman is the winter exchange piece I completed, came out pretty cute, I used clear glass beads for the snowballs. Completed in pinks and purples pulled from the pattern itself.
I still love to visit and see all my favorite blogs and the beautiful finishes that everyone does...
