I also finished an 'ages old' project...a Japanese knot bag that gave me fits! I used interfacing which I had to tear out as it was too much for this small bag although the pattern said you could use it. I will never make one again of this type and it barely holds a sock I am working on. Is it 'free' patterns or am I just rusty in my sewing skills? Either way, I am on to bigger (literally) and better project bags.
But at least Miss Peeps won't get into it.
it's reversible too..........
I did 3 rounds on my Giant Granny Square blanket...the pale rose, lemon and the sherbert colors. Next is grape and it will be round 62 of 68 not counting the border.
I am playing around with a project management software for all my projects.....fiber and organizing and decorating etc. It is called Trello and it is free! There is a learning curve to be sure but I think it is 'the next big thing' since Pinterest. There is also a blog where you can get lots of info and help.
I have been finalizing my Christmas and Birthday gift giving/making list this weekend and I am so late this year! We'll see how many 'handmades' I get done. There will be some sewing in there too as it's a little faster than knitting and crocheting.
I mailed off the grands Halloween boxes this week........
