I've been working on a few projects at the same time trying to put a dent in my UFO list. The crazy thing is that somehow the list keeps getting longer. I just keep getting new ideas and will start it right away before finishing up what I was doing before the idea hit me. Do you have that same problem?
I think my resolution for next year will be to finish a project to completion before starting a new one. (Giving up new fabric purchases for a year is so hard! There are so many pretties that I want in my collection but will have to hope that I can find them in 2016.)
In no particular order, here are some photos of things that are keeping me busy:
I am pretty addicted to Instagram swaps this year and signed up for way too many. This bag was for an Easter swap that uses the open-wide pouch pattern. It was so easy to make that I will definitely do a few more as gifts.
|My partner likes nerdy things so I was happy to oblige.|
|My partner loves the foxes and I used |
E. Hartman's Fancy Fox pattern to make her a tote bag.
I only had to modify it slightly.
|So tempted to keep this tote bag for myself.|
|Of course I had to make a rainbow!|
(Sorry about the bad lighting...gave it away before taking a better photo.)
The guild also made and distributed quilts to our local veteran's hospital in April. I made the Giant Vintage Star in shades of green, gray, brown and black. The back was a fun eggplant color. The gentleman who was given my quilt loved it because brown is his favorite color. I also used a "new-to-me" technique for the binding and used the backing fabric folded over instead of attaching strips.
|I will definitely make another one like this to keep.|
I can already imagine making one with rainbows of color all over.
|Blues and Greens for my hive mama.|
That pretty much wraps it up around here. I have a few more things on the horizon including some minis, completing some UFOs and planning some bigger projects. I'll keep you posted.
What's keeping you busy?
