GETTING THERE!

Grumpy and Sophia sitting in the window of the Modista where I buy my thread and needles.
Still working in every spare moment, loving the process and excited about what's coming together. 


These headbands were made for my daughter-in-law, Winge...


who never asks me for anything and tells me she doesn't need gifts, etc when it's time for her birthday. All my kids do that!!!


So when I asked what I could make for her to bring to Texas when we visit next month, and she said she'd love a headband...



I got out some scraps, found a pattern online and made these...


This is not my usual style of sewing so please don't enlarge the pictures unless you want to see how bad I am about sewing with a pattern...


but I promised Winge I'd post them so she could pick the ones she wants.

Sophia chose this one...even if it is too big for her! :)

I'm almost finished with a couple more Jennibellie style art journals 

Sophia has her own style of wearing her headband.

and hope to get the 'hangers' on my seven door knob quilts this week - 


as well as finish embroidering on three other small quilts. I only embroider when I'm sitting still which isn't often so it's a slow process.




Later alligator!

    All the headbands are awesome. I bet Sophia will love them. I've added a link here to the Prayer Flag project in case you haven't heard of it. It's a cool project. Maybe some of your circles would look good on some flags? And you are one of the 13 for me too! Have a great day.

  12. Thanks Connie! Sophia is only allowed one but she is enjoying it! :) I haven't heard of the PF project but will send myself a note to check it out as soon as I get back from the States. One of my online buddies has made some that are totally exquisite. And yes...good thoughts coming your way!
