Today on my Youtube video, entitled, Sew Grateful, I shared a couple of finishes. The idea of sharing them on this blog is to give a bit closer up photos of the projects.
Yes, I have crocheted baby blankets, however, never a big girl blanket. Lucy at attic24 changed that. https://attic24.typepad.com/
I will say, the final product is quite pleasing to the eye, the colors fall into the next. My brain swirled & fell in love with the colors so passionately, I’ve since planted half a flower bed with sweet pea seeds. Fingers crossed I will be bathed in Grace & colors & sweet scents in a couple months. Until then, I can wrap the colors around me and dream.
Side note: Good news, Mr. Right used it to take a nap and he said it works well.
Next project, The Georgina Thomson 1895 Sampler. She turned out beautiful and is now complete. We will be taking to the framers this weekend. Mr. Right’s grandmother is Georgina. Listed in the Sampler is her home address where she grew up in Scotland, her name, her birth year, the initials of her 6 children and in the lower case letters, the initials of her 13 Grandchildren.
I began this piece on March 2, 2019, and completed today, April 26, 2019. It was stitched on 28 count linen, the color called, White Chocolate. I used overdyed threads.
Once framed, there will be a written family history explaining the family names, dates, places as well as the information regarding the linen and pattern…placed on the back of the piece.
I shared one other smaller scale project. My lavender sachets. I grew and dried the lavender. Using up bits of leftover linen and thread, I stitch the sachets and add some beads and ribbon as adornment. I give them as small tuck in gifts or add to a wrapped gift. Some, I personalize with an initial.
The picture below is the window in my sewing room. I use lavender as the “curtain”.
Here are some bits and pieces of my sachet making.
It was a pleasure to share my projects today. Thanks so much for taking an interest in my hobbies.
I will leave you with some backyard spring flowers.
In this together, chat soon.
