Eleven weeks to go . . . My guild, NJMQG (North Jersey Modern Quilt Guild) has a potholder swap, so I decided to make it this week’s project, criteria: 8×8 traditional block with a modern twist. I made a rail fence block on point, and added a decorative stitch.
Twelve weeks to go . . . I went off the beaten path for this week’s project. My church had a Paint and Praise Fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey victims. It was a most enjoyable and calming event with food, fellowship, and fundraising. So, this week I painted. I call my painting My Lady In Red. I know this may not count, but I painted every brush stroke you see. If you ever get a chase to attend a Paint and Sip or Paint and Praise event, Do It!
Fifteen weeks to go . . . My project this week doesn’t require fabric. I made a door organizer for my sewing room. I used Dollar Tree items. This is a Dollar Tree DIY-Door Organizer tutorial I found on Facebook byCrafting It Up and Creations Janet; she got this idea fromLifeat50&Beyond. I’ve posted my pics and also links to their videos.
Sixteen weeks to go . . . I got a jump on things and made this weeks project early.
I made an insulated lunch bag for one of my daughters. It’s a DIY that I found on the JO-ANN Stores’ app;Click here for instructions and video tutorial by Jessica Abbott for JO-ANN Stores. I posted pics of the bag before and after handles were added. Enjoy!
Eighteen weeks to go . . . Where will creativity take me this time?
I decided to make a pair of baby crib shoes, pattern by Cheri Paxton. I purchased the $6.00 pattern fromLiving DIY Style. I’ve posted my first pair of baby crib shoes; up-cycled a pair of used pajama pants. I also found a how to video on YouTube with step by step instructions.
Nineteen weeks to go . . . I’m drawn to the bag side, ha ha ha haaaaaaa!
Oh well, I’m thirty minutes late! I didn’t get my project in on time. It was due on the twenty-seventh; however, I made my first Sweetpea Pod. I used Craftsy’s video tutorial The One-Zip Way, with Jane Hawley. I love her zipper technique. I’ve decided to make another one.
Twenty-one weeks to go . . . I’m going to incorporating quilting in my weekly project. Oh well, I didn’t do what I wanted to do, so I opted to make a quick change purse/pouch. Front and back pics of the project.
I had another busy week, so I’m posting another bucket hat that I made. It’s a Kitsch Bitsch bucket hat pattern and it’s reversible. The free pattern can be found atLost in Paris. This was a quick and easy tutorial.
