I finished this little cross stitch yesterday. There is one small error, but probably no-one is going to notice, so I'll call this part finished. This is going to be the center of a small decorative pillow. I am planning on doing some strips of fabric and lace and maybe a row of buttons - got to find a small pillow first before I know exactly how big the pillow (really a pillow case so it can be removed to be washed) will be.
I've decided that I would like to do more small projects through-out the year for seasonal decorations. Just little bittys that I can pick up here and there and work on. I would like to make some cross-sttich Christmas tree decorations, knit some Easter Egg ornaments, make some banners to go on our plain door - that type of thing. Oh - and I think it would be fun to cross-stitch some sachets - I found the orange stuck full of cloves in my son's sock drawer yesterday - he said it was to make his drawer smell nice! Oh that boy!
Quilt wise I have a big Ocean Waves quilt that is almost complete - except I lost some of the final triangles needed. How can I lose triangles? But, I did. I have the matching fabric here to cut out more triangles, so that is the big quilt project I am working on right now. Maybe sometime this week I will get those triangels cut out, sewn on and get the rows sewn together.
OK - here is the photo of what it looked like yesterday. The triangles I am missing are the final triangles that go around some of the white pieces. Not a complete triangle set because you can see I have the little squares in the bottom corner - just the triangles that go on either side. So - really a very small piece of the quilt to be lost which is preventing me from finishing this project up (for years, might I add - I keep moving this from country to country and I always seem to leave 1 piece or another somewhere - so finally I have all the blocks, the border and the extra fabric all in one place - time to get this project into a completed top stage! Every fabric except the white is plaid - very stretchy! What was I thinking? But I like it.
