I've Been Working On.............

Just to prove to you all that I really do have some projects in the works, here's a few photos of some things I've been working on.


This is the table runner that I made for E. A very similar one was given to J and J. Don't you just love those Mary E. fabrics! They were used in the little table topper I sent to my Polka-Dot and Rick Rack Swap partner too. If you would like to see her photo of the goodies I sent, you can pop over to her blog. I hope she was pleased with her package! Thanks Sharon for getting this swap organized! And by the way, Marcia has a contest going on too. Click on the icon on the side bar and you can go register. She's got a cookie swap coming up too. Sounds fun!
A couple of friends have birthdays this week, so I whipped up a couple of purses. Maybe "whipped up" isn't the right phrase, because I'm really not that fast at it! Sometimes it takes me longer to pick my fabrics than actually put the whole thing together! This one is my favorite. I used some Amy Butler fabrics I'd been saving for something special. This is the other one I made for my friend who's been my knitting mentor so it's more of a thank you gift than anything. She and I also share a birthday. I love the fabrics in this one too, though I don't know the designer. But I think I did a better job with the interfacing on the other one. As long as they are sitting side by side, I'm sure no one will ever know :)


Our little knitting group is getting together tomorrow. My last project I started on (about five times I've started on!) I discovered is still not right, so I'm thinking I'll un-ravel once again and start for the sixth time! There are no hand knitted socks or sweaters on my to-do list this year. Maybe in 2009 ! Something else to work on!

Until next time!

Fabulous Janet! I love all of them. But the runner has black in it - so it's my fav. giggle

Birthday? How did I miss that.

Happy Birthday!
