My two days off were wonderful. I did minimal chores, went out to lunch with Tony and sewed!
I have finished May's Christmas ornament and will make a start on June today. Yay! I feel like I'm all caught up.
It's not all been about ornies though. I went along to the local Patchwork and Quilting club on Wednesday evening. It was a very quiet evening, with lots of members choosing to stay away for various reasons. I had been invited by a friend Angela. She said to bring along a project. So I opted to take along some hexies.
The lady sat next to me had never seen EPP before and asked what I was doing, so I put on a quick demonstration showing how to glue baste the pieces and made the wee red shape you see here.
Angela joked that at the speed I work, it might be my show and tell next month! LOL
I'm not that fast and besides, this will be a long term project.
They are smaller than the batik hexies I showed last week, and they are to be a scrap project. No pretty flower garden design, just random scraps all sewn together.
I may even hop back onto the RSC wagon.
Or maybe not.....
Another project that is progressing quietly in the background is my latest crochet creation.
I pick it up and try to work at least 15 minutes a day.
I'll spread it all out on the floor soon and take a good picture, but for now here is one I snapped quickly after I put it down at bed time last night.
All of the yarns in this one are variegated.
It was supposed to be an exercise in just using what I had.
But I ended up buying more.
Well that is my news.
Now I'm off to prepare for my next ornie. I have some cutting to do and I'll need to go shopping for thread as I am running low.
