Good Wednesday morning to you!
Today is Whatcha Working On Wednesday at Leslie's blog.
I have been working in the yard and also on my houseplants for about two weeks and haven't even turned the sewing machine on. Well, that is about to come to a stop! My sewing room is in need of straightening and I have these projects to work on right away:
1. House Divided Pocketbook. I've made it no secret that at my house we are N. C. State fans and normally anything to do with UNC or Duke would not even get past the door way of the house..... but my hubby's co-worker has requested a pocketbook for his mother for Mother's Day that has Carolina fabric on one side and Duke fabric on the other side. So I purchased this fabric yesterday and will be working hard to get it done by Mother's Day. I tried to buy the very least amount of fabric that I would need, so there would be none left over!!!
Besides the fact that I don't like these teams, I also don't think these two fabrics look very good together. Too many different blues. I have no idea what fabric to use for the lining. I had a fabric in mind, but its another blue! Do you think white is bad for a lining? It would show dirt, but would go with both these fabrics.
2. While at the fabric store this fabric caught my eye. I love Sunflowers and couldn't resist. The store I was in has a table full of remnants and there was only one yard of this print. I'm thinking it would make a great clothes pin bag or tote bag.
3. I also saw a stack of these crocheted dish cloths for $2.00 each. I don't know how to knit, but can crochet some. So I purchased one so that maybe I can figure out the pattern. I love the crocheted and knitted dishcloths that I have received in swaps and would love to make more for myself and as gifts.
So, what have you been working on lately?
