My Week

This was a good week.
While this was going on outside,
I was busy inside with:
and a little of…
citra solv
First project was
this canvas tote with an ink transfer on the pocket.
Then I decided to try taking an old pair of pants and turning it into
this skirt. I was actually planning on using an old pair of jeans, but found a khaki pair of pants that went really well with this fabric…

…that I had bought to make a tote bag. Oh well, maybe there will be more of it at Hobby Lobby.
Then I took some scraps of fabric from my friend’s apron and made a

new pin cushion.
I also did quite a bit of baking this week, starting with
Mini muffins 001
these mini spiced muffins. Sorry, I didn’t take pictures of the lemon cake, biscuits, or yeast rolls….Yes, I’m a bad blogger.
Oh let’s not forget what came in the mail…I think I’ve mentioned by slight obsession with love of books…

I can’t wait to find some fabric for one of these:

the patterns.
I also washed
Burlap close up
for a couple of future projects. But for today, I’m giving the sewing machine a break while I pick up a crochet hook to make a scarf. I’m hoping to find an old movie to watch while I let my hands do that busywork.
Have a great, creative weekend!
