New Beginnings . . . Week 42

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.

New Beginnings . . . Week 41

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!

New Beginnings . . . Week 38

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 by Crafting It Up and Creations Janet; she got this idea from Lifeat50&Beyond. I’ve posted my pics and also links to their videos.

New Beginnings . . . Week 37

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 from Living 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.
