I promised you before Christmas to show you my "holiday gift sewing" once the gifts were received and opened. Well, that was more than a week ago now, wasn't it? Just call me slacker! The issue has been the photos. I had three projects - the first was a set of Christmas placemats for Laura- yes, my current fav pattern - the "Take Four" mats. They were done for a while before I had the package ready to send. But can you believe we seemed to be in a "grey" period weather-wise, and there was not one bright day to get a good photo outdoors with natural light. The ones I took inside are yellowish- very poor for giving you a good idea of the true color. You might have caught a glimpse of the fabrics in this photo of Ollie, my tried and true studio companion and "helper". (I use that term "helper" very lightly!)
And Laura has not been off work on a bright day either, so still no good photos of the set. She did send me this photo of three of the four mats on their table one night recently just before dinner. So this will have to suffice until she gets a better outdoor photo in natural light.
The second project was a table runner which I finished late the day before I sent the package off, so you know what happened- once again, no good photo. You'll see it once she sends a decent photo. It's a runner by Disa Designs.
The third project is still waiting.. you might have to wait till Christmas 2015 to see it! lol Maybe I'll get motivated to tackle it later this month... We'll see...
I just didn't want you to think I've been a total sloth lately...
What are you working on these days?
I think of my sewing machine as a power tool... with thread.
