Well things are just not going the way I had hoped. My bar soap covers did not work out. Back to the drawing board on that one. I thought about just a mitten and you can drop the soap in it when done.
The liquid soap didn’t turn out so well either. I will try again using MoSoap‘s lye soap. The others are just too oily. Maybe the little that’s in lye will be just the right touch of oil.
The weaving over all is going well. I had a little mishap when I tried loosening the part already woven to count my 6″ thread markers. When I rewound it, it pulled in the thread string from shuttle messing up several rows. After I fixed it and got it wound, I had trouble keeping it from pulling in at the sides. I redid about 6″. Well it’s my first project, and not for me colors, so I’m not to heart broken.
My biscornu turned out great! I’m just waiting for a bead from In Mom’s Eyes .
I made a bag for my neice from Tone Finnanger of Tilda. I’ll post pics after I get the flower on.
When the latest edition of Nancy’s Notions arrived I was thrilled to find a multi purpose seam gauge. Not only multi purpose but almost three times the width of my own little gauge. I had been dreaming of one and thought it would be great if someone created a longer edge gauge to save me time. Lo and behold it was in the magazine! It was on my list of ASAP buys only to be disappointed. They were out of stock! So I made sure I checked back on the proposed restock date and was able to order the tool of my dreams…the 5 in 1 Sliding Gauge
Out with the Old… I am almost finished with a skirt mentioned here. I’ll be glad to be done with it. It is a nice look but I don’t like the directions. Below is the finished look and pattern number (Simplicity) if your interested.
I came across a free log cabin paper piecing pattern (can’t remember where) and loved it. They are so easy to make and great for using up those scrape pieces. My two favorite are the upper right and the bottom left. Not sure what they will end up as, but I have a few ideas.
there are if you have UnFinished Objects lying around your house!
- *Warm the Heart mini quilt. (Lower Left)
- Mini embroidery case to go with my larger pattern. (Lower Middle)
- A Bible case pattern. (Lower Right)
- Teapot wall hanging I made about 5 or 6 years ago.
It was my first attempt at quilting and I never finished the binding. (Upper Right)
- Patchwork Thank-you cards. (Upper Middle)
- Potpurri tea warmers that I started about 8 years ago! (Upper Left)
I still have several others that are not listed, but these are ones I hope to get finished. Maybe making a public declaration of my UFOs will help me to complete them.
*Oops the mini quilt is called “Follow Your Heart”. Not a term I really like. After all… “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9
