This week I've been working on several new projects.
I'm making some Fragment Fabric Collages,
each with a different theme.
This one is a cowgirl theme and says,
Cowgirls Promise--All Grit and No Quit
As you can see, I have each piece pinned on right now.
I will do some stitching and add some embellishments,
like the vintage buttons and lace you see here.
Then I will add batting and a back to it,
along with a way to hang it.
Fragments are a fun and easy way
to use up scraps of fabric and lace.
I am also making
felted wool wrist pincushions.
While visiting my cousin Paula recently,
I saw that she was using one,
and how handy it was.
She had lots of felted wool and fabric scraps,
so I started making them during my visit with her.
I love using mine,
when I'm doing hand work.
My plan is to make plenty of handmade items
for the Christmas season,
that is quickly approaching.
Do you have any great ideas you would like to share?
If so, I would love to know how to make something new.
Savor the Day!
