Good Intentions

As the famous quote of Steinback goes, "The best-laid plans of mice and men/often go awry." I really did plan on finishing this up yesterday but I refuse to rush something that just isn't ready to be done. I did get quite a bit done and I'm quite happy with how it's coming along. If it takes me a few more days, I'm not going to stress it.

I do want to finish it soon though and plan out my new idea. We will be leaving for the mountains Wednesday. I plan on taking the paisley project and also the new piece to work on while I am there. I want the new one far enough along that I at least have some idea of what to take with me. I am still mulling over even what background to use, but I do have my eye on this gorgeous red velvet I have for one of the main elements.

I did make my husband a wallet yesterday. He was quite happy with it, helping me design it to suit his needs. I made the credit card pockets larger to fit some of his other cards he uses. They are quite a bit larger. Afterwards I placed a seam down the side of one so that his credit cards would be snug. I made it from an old pair of black jean shorts. I love to be able to make useful things from something someone has discarded! Most of what I make is made with discarded clothes. I have only bought a handful of pieces of new fabric since I came here, three of which were for my wedding dress.
Hope you all have a great weekend. I will be here patiently stitching away *^_^*

  1. Great thing to be able to create such useful thing; and it is custom made for him! How about working on order for paying customers?
