I've been playing around with another little swatch of fabric using hand stitching and Alabama Chanin jersey fabric.
Looks like they will have a sale on the web site on black friday. Not sure what else I need, maybe I should look. I think my knitting friend Sharon may be getting more into sewing. She's making one of these small projects too.
Two colors of button craft thread on light fabrics gives it a little interest. I think a larger piece like a table runner would be fun to do. The light, white on white look, makes me think of snow. I can see a little mini winter scene set up on here. Mini lego houses and all.
We are starting to look forward to Thanksgiving already. Is it too soon to be doing that? I hope not.
I'm also still working on the hex quilt, but small amounts of time devoted to it here and there is making for progress at a snail's pace. I'm still happy with the results so far.
In other news, I'm reading the twitter feed called "Today in 1963" which is pretty cool, a project by NPR Kat Chow. Amazing what you can fit into 140 characters. Today was an eventful albeit sad day with the anniversary of President Kennedy's assassination.
On a happier note, I'll be visiting the SF Heath store sometime this weekend to see what's brewing on their annual sale.
