I had an incredibly productive weekend that went by way too fast. I think the spring sunshine is definitely motivating me to get some projects completed. I finished my two art quilts and just need to frame them. here is a picture of the one I haven't posted yet:
I also finished two new aprons that are now in my etsy shop:
I also made a birthday present for my mother which I will not show you now just because I don't want my mother to see it. Finally, I knit a scarf for a co-worker who had expressed a strong desire to have a scarf made of ribbony yarn. I hadn't knit anything for awhile, so I just it as an excuse to complete a quick project. Hmmm, let's see, I think that's all I got done this weekend. It felt really good to get so much done and get some new things in my etsy shop. I'm planning to get some more aprons in there this week.
I have a friend who is an interior decorator. Last week she emailed me and said that her office had about 30 books of fabric samples they were looking to get rid of, and she wanted to know if I was interested in taking them off their hands. Well, of course I got myself right on over there. While I couldn't take all the books, I think I got about half of them. I don't know if you're familiar with these sample books, but they are filled with some gorgeous silk and cotton fabrics in addition to upholstery fabric. I'm going through the books right now, and separating what I think will be the most useful fabrics from those I probably won't use. While the samples aren't huge, they are large enough to make small zippered bags, patchwork items and a lot more things I'm sure you all could think of. I'd love to share the wealth, so if you're interested in any of these fabrics, please email me with your address , tell me your three top color choices, and I'll get a package of fabric out to you. If I send you some fabric, I would really love to see what you do with it.
