In the Works…

Posted on

I’ve had a few things in progress this weekend.  I wish I could show more of the next two things, but they are gifts for people and on the off chance they see this I don’t want to spoil the surprise. So, here’s a sneak peek at item #1:

 

And item #2:

I had a rare excursion to Joann’s on Friday and was able to pick up fabric for more  jewelry rolls and aprons, and also Insulbrite to make potholders and tea cozies! Check out this pleasing array of fabric.  For jewelry rolls I use one fabric for the outside and then like to have a nice surprise fabric as the lining of each of the pockets.

I love special things and traditions for the holidays and so this year I’ll be making each of my kids their own special apron for Christmas cookie baking.  Here are the fabrics I’ve chosen:

And finally, I’ve been doing some glass fusing at the paint your own potter/glass studio.  This is the first necklace I’ve made and I have to say it did not live up to my expectations. I was thrilled with it when I laid it out but it lost too much of the heart shape and was placed too high up on the blank square of glass.  That said, I’ll still wear it as a neat piece of colorful jewelry.  I’m looking forward to seeing how the other three turned out.

I also made these suncatchers and I am very pleased with them.  For Christmas:

For Thanksgiving:

Feeling very motivated to finish up the items in the works! We’ll see.  I always think evenings will be my most productive, but as soon as we build a cozy fire I pretty much curl up in front of it and that’s it for the day!

  1. Wow! You’ve been a busy crafter! I love the look of those fabrics you’ve got there, and the glass pieces — they’re awesome!
