Many Finishes, Few Photos

Thanks, everyone, for your uplifting comments and compliments on my front path area. You should see it--now with more daffodils.

I had to go to a college* near my house to do some research for work today. Research always takes longer than you think. I was there for over three hours, and I could go back for more. I drove right to sewing class from there. I finished my Amy Butler Stash and Dash bag but I was ravenous when I got home so I ate instead of taking photos by the dimming light.

What I do have to show you is the completed stitching on what will become my scissor keep from camp. A lot of people used one really large motif on theirs, but I thought it would be fun to stitch a bunch of random motifs and see how it works out. I'm trying to decide which way to orient it--I'm pretty sure the orientation pictured here is not the one--but we'll all find out when I sew it (this weekend?). I finish-finished the fob and the biscornu but I have no photos tonight. I'll have lots to show tomorrow.

And WOOT! I am next in line to stitch the Traveling Pattern. I am part of a sorority! Yeah, that's funny to me too.

* A Quaker college, go figure!

So very pretty in blue!

That's lovely! I'm really getting into Quaker motifs.

Amy Butler bags are like crack. Every pattern I see, I want. But I'm a mess with a sewing machine, so I've never done one. Some day!

I love the color of this. How big is it? I can't tell in the picture.

Donna said...

Pretty, pretty, pretty!

Which fiber/color is that? I love it.

I love what you did with your scissors keep and I can't wait to see which way you decide to orient it for finishing. You must take another picture of your front walkway so that we can see the extra profusion of daffodils. And, of course, I want to see the Amy Butler bag. :)

Congratulations on being next in line for the Sisterhood! :D

You've been busy! I love the idea of several random motifs for the scissor keep. I like it with either the right or left side as the top. That's great you're getting the traveling pattern - maybe I'll be next in line after you. I keep trying!
