Projects Update

I have no completed projects to show. A birthday party over the weekend for the kids didn't leave a lot of time for sewing, but here's what I've been working on:

  • I'm working on a messenger style bag using the vintage dark green fabric I bought. The lining is ready to be sewn in as soon as I get the flap done. Hoping to finish this tonight.
  • I also started a tote bag using the blue and brown print. I've set that aside until I get a quilting foot for my sewing machine as I'm having trouble sewing through the multiple layers of fabric and ribbon I'm using. Hoping a new foot will help.
  • The cotton cabled tank I'm knitting (Cynthia) is also on hold for lack of a 16" circular needle. Joanns and Michael's stores are almost an hour away and when finally I got up there, neither store carried the size I needed. Hoping to find one this weekend when I head out to a yarn shop in a nearby town.
  • The bathroom is almost completely finished. The two antiques sconces are being stripped and repainted, and I really want to get them up before posting pictures.

I am greatly enjoying the beautiful fragrance coming from this hyacinth. The bulb was a birthday gift from my parents, and after a cool, dark time in the basement and some sunshine in the sunrooom, it is in full bloom. It may be freezing outside but in my sunroom it's Spring!

  1. Hyacinth is one of my favorite scents...I will usually buy them at least once in late winter to help me "over the hump"...yesterday I saw the first one in my garden. It is a white one and very pretty.
