Here's the to-do list:
Snowman stitcheries (x2)
Charlotte pin cushions (x2)
This is a pretty ambitious list of things to accomplish. I didn't take into consideration that I hadn't felt well all last week. Nothing major, just enough to hinder me.
So I spent Saturday afternoon with Sister. She was crocheting the cutest little animals I've ever seen.
She's making them for her sister-in-law's baby daughter.
So while Sister crocheted, I stitched on the snowmen I started last month when Honey Do and I went away for the weekend. I haven't put much focus on my projects due to the loss of one of our beloved pups - searching where ever I could.
I finally finished them this weekend. I've done a set before that I've given to Sister and BFF. I'm thinking about making small wall hangings out of these. They are not a top priority but I want to finish them by the end of January.
A follower of my blog said she might be interested in the designs. I found these on Pinterest, copied the images to a WORD file and expanded them to enlarge. I stitched them in a variegated blue and am very pleased with the results. (Sorry about the wrinkles, I didn't take the time to iron them before photographing.)
From stitchery, I moved on to the rag doll. I started sewing her up on Friday evening. I managed to squeak out a little time between Newton leaving and Honey Do getting home. Saturday I stuffed legs and arms. Today, I have a finished baby :)
She doesn't have hair yet. I'm hoping to get that done on Tuesday.
I did get her a face. I am absolutely thrilled with the end result. I sent a copy to Sister, she wants to make her next.
I've started making her clothes and she'll have rompers to wear tomorrow. They are about half finished.
This is her quilt :) The machine quilting is almost finished and that leaves only the binding to finish this sweet little project.
I managed to put in a little time on the Charlotte pin cushion, but not enough. I'll continue to work on her in between projects. I haven't decided if she'll be a gift yet or not.
The baby afghan is coming along, and I usually only work on that in the evening when I'm watching television.
I wasn't able to stay off the computer as much as I wanted. I'll work on my self-discipline, that's the only reason the computer takes over all my time. Between Facebook and Pinterest. Although, I'm getting additional ideas from both resources, not that I really need any new projects.
Thanks for stopping by, encouraging me.
Wishing you a creative day.
