I opened two little flat packages, that came in the mail, yesterday. My little sewing projects had arrived. I wanted something to work on this winter...that didn't require a lot of thought. I have done very intricate quilting some years ago, but I don't have the eyesight for that now. I still get the urge to do a bit of needlework, however.
I was looking for fabric with birds or flowers on it. So many of the fabrics that I wanted were not in stock, so where did I go...to Etsy. I had never looked at fabric there, but I was surprised when I found so many choices. These are little panels that I can stitch as much or as little as I want. I can follow the pattern or do something creative from my own mind. I have a new embroidery frame...a gift from my son, that I haven't used before. Here's the chance to try that one out.
So, with the new embroidery frame, pretty bird and flower panels, and my new craft lamp by Ott....I should be all set for many hours of stitching.
I would lilke to make a new runner for the porch table and maybe a couple of pillow covers for the porch. I'll have all winter to finish these. Now, if my eyes cooperate I'll be happy.
