    Red face What are you sewing/making now?

    So what are you sewing?

    I am working on finishing up new curtains for a room that I just put in hard wood floors. Beautiful material. Vibrant yellow, with red roses spaced out enough that the yellow is your main focal point.

    I made 2 swags and a long, crumpled valence for each of the 4 windows.

    Perfect.... even if I say so myself.

    Your curtains sound great!

    I'm working on quilt blocks, what else? I'm planning ahead for Christmas. Ordinarily I wouldn't have to be quite so anal in my planning but I'm preparing to go on a six week vacation and that's a lot of time to lose! I'm planning two small quilts (for my children) and some holiday table runners to sell in a local craft shop (they want stock in by October).

    I want to get the blocks made up now so that I can just whip the tops together when I get home in Sept.

    Does cross stitching count as sewing? It does to me (at least) because it uses a needle and thread (well floss, but who cares). Anyway, I'm working on a dragon (a pink one to be exact). It's coming along nicely now, but I had to put it up for awhile. I was aggrivating me to no end.

    snicker..I think technically..it is needlework....but I don't care...I want to know what you are working on anyway.

    (elbows Irish) so are you going to get it back out?

    I love to sew and can make my own patterns. A Christmas tradition is new PJ's all around from me to wear Christmas Eve. I love it. I've taught both my girls to sew and we are going to make some summer dresses soon.

    Default Love to sew

    I love to sew, too, but I mainly make baby gifts now. My daughter took it in school, but never really got into it. Occasionally she asks me to make her something, but it's usually not very difficult - and usually just something that embellishes something else.

    Now that she's an adult, I never get a chance to make her stuff. *sigh* Why do they have to grow up?
