In the ongoing theme of keeping my hands busy while my thoughts and emotions run a muck, I started several (more) projects this month. There isn't enough time in a week to post all the already started and still not finished things I have going, but these are the newest ones to join the craft pile.
I saw a tutorial for the cutest little microwave bowl potholders, and had to try them. I have two of them cut out and ready to measure and sew. It looks like this project will go quickly, assuming I ever start it! If I buy bowls to go inside, I think they will make really cute gifts!
I also saw a great chevron quilt tutorial, and since I was given a ton of holiday fabrics that someone was planning to throw away (yards and yards of fabric, already stuffed into trash bags and on their way to the dumpster!!!), I decided that there was no reason in the world not to start this, too. I'm using the shamrock fabrics to start, and will probably try to find a tartan plaid for accent zig-zags to go in between so it isn't entirely shamrocks, because I think I need another color to balance it out -- I haven't quite made a decision about that, but an investigative trip to JoAnn's is on my list of undone-things to do today.
And last but not least, I want to make zipper bags to put the little outfits in for their travels. Those are cut and ready to sew -- another short project that is just waiting for my energy meter to go up!
