Now that I’m retired from my job-that-pays-the-bills, I can declare a snow day whenever I wish. It’s snowing today, so that was a no-brainer for me. I didn’t even go to the gym this morning and that’s not a habit I want to continue!
It was so decadent to sit around and drink coffee, catch up with emails, take a late shower and then decide if I even wanted to do anything at all! But projects were calling to me, of course, so I headed to the studio to work on them.
Baby Golfer is done except for the label and sleeve. And I am so very happy with it. I think the new owner will be also.
I will be so sad when I use the last of this yarn, though. It is the perfect combo for many of the pieces that I do.
It was one of the remnants that I got from someone, at some time, and I have no idea of it’s origins so there is no hope of finding more. I don’t think it was some that I dyed, but it could be! I may try that when I use this up, though.
I continued on the piece I started during the hockey weekend. I have fused scraps of organdy that I want to use up. They have been sitting around for quite a long time and they need to be gone! So……………
Grasslands. This part is smaller than I want the piece to be, and I have more scraps of these fabrics so I’m toying with the idea of building up a medallion style piece. Might be too busy, though, and one like this one might work better, if I find the right background fabric.
But I still had a ton of the organdy left so I picked out all the green and put it on a purple–yes, purple!–organdy background.
This will be a second piece in a Grasslands series. I have no idea of the next step on this one yet, though. Stitching will be a major part of it, but it could get some cutting done, too. It probably needs some of the same fabric scraps as the first one.
Creating is always so much fun! I have unsewn samples from pattern making experiments, too, that I’d like to get finished. Aaaaaaand I am taking a class at quilt guild this weekend. Lots of good times ahead and it all started with my snow day.
