Small wall hangings are also big fun because they finish up fairly quickly, and I've done a couple of those.
There are a couple more (LOL) but I've got to get picture of them before I can post. After I get all of my current projects done, I really, really, really want to make one of those "Butterfiesy" wall hangings by Cedar Canyon that uses stencils and paints. It is just too gorgeous for words, as you can see here! (This is NOT mine - it is a picture of the pattern package)
I was doing some web surfing and bounced onto this and I swear, my jaw hit the floor. Just totally LOVE it! Maybe I can start it next month, if I get everything else done. Or maybe I'll stat it even though I've got several projects going already. Somebody did a survey - how many projects is too much. In my humble opinion, a body's got to have at least 10 going. That way you don't get bored! Seriously, though, I am having to force myself not to order the supplies for this thing, because I know that if I do, as soon as it hits that mailbox of mine, there will be no sewing for baby getting done! The baby quilts are a MUST!
And before I totally forget - for my friend Peg Baker, who kindly follows my silly ramblings, here are some pictures of one of the lap desks I made for Christmas. I found her tutorials on how to cut bias bindings on You-Tube and they were VERY helpful!
