I've been keeping a hand written log of what I have worked on in my world of crafting since the beginning of the year. One side of the book notes what I want to do or have committed to do and the other side shows what I have done each day. Each night I make a note of what I worked on even if I only worked on it for as little as 15 minutes. I must admit it has been eye opening and it is keeping me on track for my commitments.
Since my last posting I have been making Mickey and Minnie hats for Angel Snugs. (yes they do get permission from Disney) I turned in the Mickey's before the trip and the Minnie's got dropped off on the way home. I managed to make 6 of each. Totally forgot to take pictures of the Minnie's before I turned them in. Blaming the pollen for that oversight. This is a picture of the Mickey's before the ears were attached.
I made a couple of the Pixie Baskets, the tutorial has been all over the internet. They were a fun project that I did in an evening.
I've also been keeping up on my Quilty 365 blocks. Before the trip I was one ahead. Last night I prepped 8 and stitched 4. I think that I am now 3 behind. I hope to get them done today. I'm so afraid of getting behind on this project and then dropping it. I've started to put the blocks together in groups of 8 just so I can keep track of them. They outgrew their space on my wall way to quickly.
I made 2 additional sets of rope coasters and baskets. One set was requested by my cousin and the other was a gift for the friends we met up with at Disney. My friend can't wait to try making them on her own. Always a good response when making things for crafty friends.
I finished quilting and binding the Honor Flight quilt I was working on with my guild. Turned that in before I left for Disney.
My girls like to hang with me when I am sewing so I made them a rather large bed for the sewing room floor from an old Mattress pad and a fleece blanket kit I got on sale and with a coupon from JOANN's. This photo shows Nets testing the in progress bed. Shes seems pleased.
And then because I have nothing else to do I started a new hand quilting project just for me
These are my dotty clam shells. I love them. I had 3 fat quarter bundles of these dots just hanging out in my sewing room. I saw a clam shell quilt posted somewhere and my brain started to click away at the possibilities. I had always wanted to "quilt" a quilt with that pattern but had never given any thought to making a quilt with them. Not having a clue where to begin I started to google. This is where I am on the project. It is truely a learning experience and I am enjoying it completely. The info available out there is amazing.
