I have a small start on the new landscape to show you. I will be taking some creative liberties with this one and making some additions but you'll just have to wait and see what they are. For that matter, even *I* will have to wait and see what they are!!
- THIS is a really nice cowl pattern - would use up yarn scraps from your stash quite nicely.
- And if you have one of those pretty variegated cake yarns in your stash, perhaps creating THIS might be fun (and would make a beautiful gift too!). And while you're at that site, check out all her other free patterns - there are some really nice ones!
- I know you've all seen fabric gift bags and there are tons of how-to's out there. THIS one caught my eye however - mainly because of the fabric she used and the way she decorated them. There's also some ideas for filling them in her post.
- THIS would be so much fun to make for kids!! I suspect there's a good many adults that might secretly love it too.
- Sometimes I come across a great idea when I'm moseying around visiting blogs and I had to share THIS idea (scroll down to the end of her post to see what fun game tradition her family has for stockings!).
Today's quote is from Amy Carmichael..."You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving"
the new landscape already is taking shape and I know exactly what you mean about waiting to see what happens on a project....I love how things change as we go......ReplyDelete
I think many projects end up speaking to us and trying to force them to go in a direction they don't want to go is generally a lesson in frustration.Delete
Nice start with an interesting barn.ReplyDelete
The red ticking bags are a great idea.
I think it was the red ticking that caught my eye too - so simple and yet so elegant. Nice suggestions for both filling and decorating them too.Delete
Oh Joy! The latest barn is on it's way. Go with your flow as that's been the best way so far. I can hardly wait to see the first additions.ReplyDelete
Going with the flow isn't always so 'flow-y' - I spend a lot of time contemplating what to do next and then changing my mind. I do have a plan, such as it is!Delete
what a beautiful snowy picture you have posted for your header! Wow! I love seeing the beginning of your new landscape.ReplyDelete
Thank you - glad you like it! I have plans to do another winter scene after I complete the one I'm currently working on.Delete
Great start Mary Anne! Excited to see the 'extra' additions!! Have a lovely weekend! Christine xxReplyDelete
Thanks Christine - I'm looking forward to it too. I have an idea in my head but trying to translate it into fact is always a bit of a challenge.Delete
Lovely start here and I’ll tell you what else is lovely...that gorgeous afghan of yours. I’ve just read your last three posts and followed many of the links, took photos of several projects and got to see what’s Christmasy at your house. Time I got up now.😀ReplyDelete
Thank you Jocelyn - kind words indeed! I hope the recipients of the afghan will like it too.Delete
I love your stone barn already. Thanks for the great links once again.ReplyDelete
Thank you Lorraine - there's a ways to go on this one but at least I have started. Glad you liked the links!Delete
That stone fabric is really cool.ReplyDelete
The scale is a bit too large but I think I can change it enough to make it work....fingers crossed!Delete
I haven't made it in here in over a week?!? It's been one of those weeks... So glad to see the beginnings of your new barn and landscape quilt. I'm going to enjoy instantly catching up with the progress you've made on it this week. :)ReplyDelete
I don't think there's any sort of 'blog reading' police Becki - so never worry about missing any of my mumblings!Delete
