I’ve been doing many things lately besides sewing.
In early November, I did my first home show with some of my weavings. Around here, people with larger homes will invite up to 10 of their crafty friends to show and sell wares in their “show” before Christmas. I did well enough to go back again next year.
Here are some rolled up scarves on display.
They are in one of those fancy hard paper boxes you get at craft stores. It worked really well for display as well as for transport.
After that show, I wasn’t in the mood to weave right away, so I got out my glue gun and some scrapbooking paper and upcycled these perfectly good handle bags!
Here are some close ups –
This one has braid glued over the edge of the heart. The bottom design is all paper – no real ric rac!
Simple is sometimes best.
I like this mittens one. The scrapbook paper didn’t quite reach the side of the bag, but fit perfectly over the logo. Washi tape finished those edges.
Then I decided to clean out my yarn stash and sort it by value.
This is the same photo in B & W – see how the yarns are arranged from white to black?
That’s value. If the value is correct, you can put any 2 colors together and it will look good.
But at the end of October, we spent a week on the Gulf. It was glorious!
This is me with my husband in Seaside.
I have been sewing, but not taking photos. I’m sure some of you can relate…
Happy Creating everyone!
