One of my goals for the New Year was to start a more personalized blog that shows specifically projects that I am working on. Almost everyday, customers come into the store (I own Sew Swanky in Cedar City, there is a blog for the store here) and want to know what we are working on. This will be a fun way for me to keep track of all I am doing, and will give me some motivation to get stuff done! Otherwise, the whole world (meaning all of those people who happen upon here), will know about all my UFO's.
This post will be long, so be warned...and to think, this is just what I have started this week!
We recently received the Anna Maria Horner book, Seams to Me, and I had to make something right away! I decided to do the Bo Peep Skirt for Kim's little girl out of Amy Butler's Daisy Chain. I love it! I just need to add elastic.
Next, I find it weird that as a quilter I have never actually made a true log cabin quilt. So I decided to do that, again the fabric are Daisy Chain by Amy Butler. The book, is Quilt in a Day Log Cabin by Eleanor Burns. Love her methods! I think I can actually get this done in a day!
Also, I have started a class sample. We have this great variegated cashmere yarn by Jade Sapphire, and being cashmere is kinda pricey. So I decided to make a cowl, one skein, some lacy stitches, and some circular needles and voila (I am at the halfway point and I did this last night watching TV..) This will be a March Class at Sew Swanky.
And finally, I finished a project. This is off to my Grandma. I know this is project overload but I was not sure where to start. Stay tuned to see the finished products.
