Graduation Season

It's graduation season.
Time to FINISH the quilts!

This is the last of three graduate quilts
that will be given away SOON!

My blue scraps and leftover shirts
did NOT disappoint me!

A simple loopy quilting pattern was
easy and brainless.


AND...
my stash yielded some nice CHUNKS for the backing!

I enjoy making
and GIVING!
Don't you???

Monday Making


I've been swirling around on a graduation quilt!!
Mindless quilting.
A SIMPLE swirl.
MY sort of doodling.
I thought about quilting something "Creative"...
but decided my doodle was good enough!!

;)

Monday Making

I'm not a Crewel Embroidery expert.

I don't know how to get the KINKS out of the linen background after it's done.
;/
I probably didn't use the right kind of yarn.
and...
I didn't follow the color diagram
OR
 the stitching diagram.

I DID my OWN thing...
and that's what was SO MUCH FUN!!!

With a $1 price tag...
I figure it was a GREAT entertainment VALUE!!
It gave me hours of happy work.

Now...
to get a NICE backing and finish this PILLOW!!

I'll be wondering as I sew...
"Should I KEEP it???
Or give it away????"

That's ALWAYS the question.

What are YOU up to this week???

Thank you for joining me here each week 
as we share about MAKING stuff!!!

You're a BUSY bunch
and I LOVE seeing it ALL!!

Friday Finish

I just finished this baby Afghan and...
I was HAPPY to be done.
but....
kind of sad to be done with these colors.


Thankfully I have a vintage crewel embroidery kit
and can continue my infatuation with
PINK!!!

The only thing purchased in the making of these projects...
was the vintage crewel kit ($1).
I didn't like the colors in the kit...
But...
I liked the FLOWERS!

I'm having so much fun creating a NEW color palette for this pillow!
