Okay, so I know it has been more than a week...but not only have we had a lot happen, I have actually finished a few more things! This Spring Rabbit Banner has been calling my name for many, many years. I started it and had the border and spring letters done and then left it . Every spring I pulled it out, looked at it, and then put it back away. Well this spring she called my name and it was the perfect project to work on while I watched all the news coverage of the earthquake in Japan. I still have to put the backing on, but that will be done tonight (hopefully). :)
Remember this project? It's Leprechaun Lodge from http://www.blueribbondesigns.com/. Last Saturday I decided I would make the tuck pillow for it. I didn't actually have a pattern for the pillow and it was a bit more complicated than I thought...as you can see I ended up making three pillows and there are a lot of other scraps on my ironing board. I may still end up taking it apart again, but that will be next year.
This little pin cushion was a lot of fun to do...and I love the wool that was in the kit. I know when I bought the kit I thought the flower was going to be purple so I was a bit surprised to open it and find blue. I really do like it now that it is done, so sometimes surprises are good?!
And last, but not least, is my Christmas ornament bird from Lizzie Kate. I love her! It was so fun to make and just cute. If I keep finishing an ornament a week, I could have about 40 ornaments for my tree by the time I decorate it. FUN! A good incentive to keep working on them.
I should probably make a little confession...I thoroughly cleaned my house the week after Christmas and organized all the projects I've had for a long time that need some kind of finishing, have been started and left, or have never been started and made a goal of trying to see how many I could finish in one year. I've got a pretty good start. Hopefully I can continue to make my "to do" pile a lot smaller. See you soon!
