I am sure that you never have this problem. ;0) Right!
Ok, well, I have to share about all the things I have started so I can start marking some off of my list. It has been awhile.
1. embroidery projects….
2 table runners given to me to finish by my Mom They are about 1/2 finished and require brain power. I can’t do this work on auto pilot. 1 is green and 1 is white
Three Two vintage pillow cases that need embroidery that I bought this weekend. They are gloriously smooth and soft. A little yellowed but washing should take care of that. They are in brand new never used condition. I finished one pillow case and then found out that I want to do the others in redwork and need about 10 skeins of the same red embroidery thread.
1 candlewicking pillow or wall hanging kit that I bought in a moment of weakness to go with a candlewicking kit that I completed 25 years ago. (yeah, right what was I thinking…)
5 heart quilt top squares that I would then stitch into a quilt or make into throw pillows.
2. Frogging to do
1 blue/turquoise sweater 1/2 done…
1 tan sweater vest
1 other sweater
1 black stripe sweater Claimed by a daughter…so there is no need to frog it.
1 blue sweater vest
2 baby bibs that were top stitched on a bad day. Got that done today… 3/28/2013
3. crocheting to do
1 cotton blanket waiting on the yarn. Completed 3/29/2013
1 custom order to do waiting on the yarn
1 chunky granny square blanket

4. sewing to do
repair one shirt Completed! 3/29/2013

make a quilt… (I really want to but haven’t bought any fabric or planned it at all.)
finish up about six coat hangers
make a purse for summer for me. (I have a pattern that I want to conquer!) It has been hard to sew this pattern but just because I haven’t followed the instructions)
I was on a real roll with sewing last week and I created so many new items for Spring. Here is a snap shot of the bunnies and their accessories. I had so much fun creating them and fine tuning the pattern. Each bunny told me that they had a story and a certain personality.
You can find two of the bunnies in my shop with more soon to follow. If you would like to know when more bunnies and their accessories are going to be posted in the shop leave me a comment or drop by the Etsy shop with a convo and your e-mail address. I will never, ever sell your email to anyone else or use it for anything but ChocolateDogStudio newsletters!
I finished this scarf up last night. It had been laying around the studio begging to be finished and finally it ended up this very pretty scarf. It is about 5′ long and almost 6″ wide. It has 14 granny squares in it and a pretty scalloped border. The colors are fresh and springlike.
Just a little progress on this blanket. I am working on it and it is beautiful. I love the creamy white with the flash of color here and there. I haven’t decided what color the next row will be and I am tossing some ideas around. It will get the next color row and hopefully one more before the end of the day, but it is getting larger and that just takes time and work.
