Although I feel like I've done more sewing/quilting/crafting this year than ever, I didn't start much this month. I guess December was spent finishing projects, not starting them. Here, for my blog-land friend Cat Patches, are my last pitiful beginnings for 2012:
I started to turn this wonky block into a pot holder. It still needs to be bound and finished. I made a couple of others this month, and haven't quite gotten the hang of sewing the binding yet. The ones I've finished look VERY homemade. I'm hoping to perfect the method sometime this year so that I can make them as gifts for next year. A perfect use for all those little scraps that are cluttering up my house!
And I finally cut out the pieces from a clutch purse pattern that I am hoping will be good for gifting. Of course, there is no pressure since Christmas is a full year away. And let's face it, I am not feeling very motivated these days, with the cough-y crud that seems to have taken permanent hold on my life. But hopefully I'll be full of vim and vinegar again soon, and I hope these projects won't sit in my sewing room for long!
