Linking up to WiP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced...go check out what everyone else has been up to!
I took some time off from sewing this weekend to cook with my husband. We did an 'iron chef' style challenge on Sunday, with chocolate and strawberries as the not-so-secret ingredient(s). I chose chocolate baklava as my dessert, and when I finished it, I realized why :)
Doesn't it just look like a culinary patchwork of HSTs? I laughed at myself after cutting it up!
Anyway, focusing back on sewing...last week, I finished another jacket, and now I am working on three more. Apparently 4-year-olds grow out of their jackets quickly and have a real sense of fashion (along with their mommas)?
Notice my (gasp!) paper scissors on the table. Yep, my nice, expensive, spectacularly awesome fabric shears are out of commission. Haven't heard yet if they are repairable, but the top shear is bowed inward. It made for a really sad Monday. These were a Christmas gift, and a new pair of scissors won't be in my budget for a while.
I also started cutting for the memorial quilts (how I discovered the broken scissors) and did some piecing for my monochromatic challenge quilt. [still trying to not reveal too much!]
-innocent crush runabout jacket
-three more runabout jackets (2 pint-sized)
-sliced coins quilt (no progress, still need to get batting!)
-crochet scarf for just me
Thanks for stopping by! I'm excited to see what you have been up to :)
