I have been blessed to have some of my family here visiting me. While they’ve been off for a few days visiting the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas, I’ve spent the time working on my projects. They return tonight and we have wonderful plans for the weekend.
The goals I listed the other day have been achieved and my week has been successful.
Goal 1: Two More Bend-the-Rules Clutches
I used Regina’s button (Creative Kismet) from the Embroidered Button Swap for this clutch—it complements the lining fabric perfectly. The fabrics are by Kaffe Fassett.
This bag has a button I made from a little piece of the lining fabric which is a Michael Miller design. The exterior fabric is Bunkhouse by Moda Classic. Learning to make covered buttons is the most useful new skill I’ve learned lately.
Goal 2: Deck the Halls Ornament Swap Project
In this swap you make an ornament and buy one. This project is done but I can’t post it until my swap partner receives it.
Goal 3: Three Puppet Theatres
The final of three doorway puppet theatres made for Christmas. My husband wanted it to be patriotic. No one in my family reads my blog so I’m perfectly safe posting pictures.
These are the theatre cases.
Once again I put the covered button trick into play.
Goal 4: Operation Christmas Child
My husband and I shopped for two boxes for Operation Christmas Child: toys, Crayons, coloring book, hairbrush/comb, bars of Ivory soap, 4 washcloths each, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc.
Have a wonderful weekend!
