After the death of my sister last week, I find myself wandering around the house, start this project, pull it out, start another project, take it apart… This is a very difficult time and I find that just the process of crafting of any sort is comforting.
This tissue cover was a quick 20 minutes in the sewing room. I have wanted to make some of these for a long time…just never quite got a round tuit..lol
This is the sampler that was woven using my wooden heddle. There is a group both in Yahoo groups and in Ravelry of crafters who work with weaving and I am correct in saying that this type of weaving should be warp faced… Mine turned out weft faced. I will be trying this again and pulling it narrower, beating a little harder and see if that is the problem… I was really looking forward to the pattern the warp face would make…lol Guess patience is a virtue…!
I dug out some pillowcases I’ve had for about 5 years that have been waiting patiently in my work room for me to decide what to do with them. Well, this is it. This is crocheted edging that I started yesterday. This pattern is from a booklet put out by Coats called Edgings.. A Collector’s Book. I love this book.. It has a selection of crocheted, knitted and tatted lace edging patterns. There will probably also be embroidery, but that pattern has yet to be decided… As Scarlett O’Hara said… I’ll think about that tomorrow…
