Here's what I have been finishing up the last few weeks.
First, a little nightgown for the dd.
She picked out the fabric at a swap meet and told me she wanted a big ruffle on the bottom. Ai ya ya. But I figured it out. I pieced it together using a ruffle from another pattern. I did a little bias around the armholes and on the hem. Binding is a whole lot easier than hemming.
And I also finished the little quilt for kayakknitter in the mini quilt group on flickr. I hope she's not looking here! She might have it by now...
This was a sew strips, cut, sew little blocks, cut, sew. It was fun and meditative.
I've started reading a book about creativity and making it part of everyday. The book suggests having a small ritual to start off the day, or when entering one's studio. I think that is good advice. I need to develop a ritual that says brain, get going now! Does anyone out there have a ritual like that?
Have a good one.
