still hookin' … and sewing ….

BeFunky Grunge 2 on iPhone

i'm kinda surprised at how few doily books i can find in my local craft store. perhaps they are "out of fashion" ?

i was glad to find this booklet however, as it has written and charted instructions! … better yet, i like all the designs in it.

so, i started a new one, in a shade of (aunt lydia's) thread called "french rose". it's a coral-pink. and i did not take a picture, but you can see all the color ways offered here.

there are loads of free patterns available, but i prefer to work from charts --- and most patterns are written.

i took off early from work (without pay! … but freedom is priceless!) … and was somewhat productive. i finished the project bag i started yesterday for myself, and also made one for a friend.

on the left is my bag --- made with *patriotic* bug fabric, and on the right … her's, made with ridiculous beefy-man fabric.

last week, when schmutzie and i had spoken, she asked if there was a new "beefy-man-fabric" for the upcoming 4th of july holiday. i told her there was, but i hadn't gotten any because it was lame (no watermelon?! no dripping ice cream cones?! no baseball?! … HOTDOGS! HELLO?!).

so when i was out & about last weekend, i revisited the red, white & blue cotton section of the fabric store, and got a cut of fabric for her.


she will enjoy!

for myself, i liked the bugs with silver glitter ….


… thus, 2 new bags.
