Well if you read yesterday's post, you'll understand this statement: The Lord had a better idea!!! LOL
I spent the night at my Mama's after going home for a shower and to get my overnight things. I grabbed some books, catalogs and magazines to look at while over there. One was a catalog called "Connecting Threads". It has lots of quilting patterns, fabrics and other crafts. It gave me lots of ideas for quilts, etc. to make in the future.
I thought you might like to see some of the free patterns offered on the "Connecting Threads" website.
TISSUE BOX COVERS:
This is one of many free patterns offered. I thought I would like to make some of these for gifts and my Etsy Shop. I don't necessarily want to make them with the seasonal appliques shown, but using pretty fabric. But, who knows, I might get good at applique if I keep trying!
I've have a new niece or nephew on the way and would like to start planning a baby quilt for the baby shower as soon as the gender of the baby is revealed! I found some great ideas in the catalog.
I'm also enjoying an older book by Leslie Linley called "Take Along Crochet". It's from 1985 (I think) and I bought it a library discard sale a while back. I can crochet, but need to learn a lot more. In this book is a "Kenya Bag" that I would love to make. If they go together fast enough I would like to sell them in my Etsy Shop. This would be a great project to take along to Mama's when spending the night there and would help satisfy my urge to create! There are also other projects in the book I would like to try. All those Crochet abbreviations sound like greek to me, but I know I'm not too old to learn more new things.
