Unfinished Projects

I finished writing my final paper to present in class this week, and it feels great. What a relief it will be when the semester is over. Then I won’t feel guilty working on my unfinished craft projects.

I was so excited to get my Bittersweet Autumn quilt back from The Quilt House, where Julie Jenkins machine quilted my quilt top. I took a class at my local fabric store with Judy Hasheider to make this quilt. Each block is assembled similar to a log cabin block, and the wool leaves are appliqued on. It has been about five years since I took the class, so I am happy to see the quilt in one piece, finally! All I have left to do is sew on the binding, which is a good project to work on during a movie.

My next project is a darling pine tree sachet from The Purl Bee. Purl publishes the best project tutorials; knitting and sewing pattern ideas; and gift suggestions. This is an easy project to work on when you have just a couple minutes; it takes about an hour to complete one tree. Here is a picture of my first pine tree, almost finished. I just have to add the tassel and some flecks or flakes. I hope to make a forest of them!

Also on my list are these fingerless gloves, cable slippers from the One Skein book, felted oven mitts for gifts, homemade napkins for gifts, and ornaments for the ornament swap.

Hope you are finding ways to be creative today too.
