Projects finished in November 2015
Schnitzel and Boo Round 4 Mini Quilt
My own modifications to a pillow pattern from A Quilter’s Mixology by Angela Pingel featuring the Alison Glass Handcrafted and Handcrafted 2 Fabrics and Essex Linen. My first time doing spiral quilting and piecing curves!
Another Open Wide Pouch as an extra, using scraps from the mini quilt. I also included some chocolate and a magnetic pin-bowl that I forgot to photograph.
Aprons for Davy and his youngest cousin – these ended up being Christmas gifts. I actually ended up making an aqua strap for the floral one and using the twill tape strap in the shark one.
Pattern is the Little Chef Apron from Straight Grain (there is a matching Big Chef pattern; I should make one for Gregg!)
Felt play food for A – a birthday gift for Davy’s youngest cousin. Most of these are replicas of play food I had already made Davy but I did make him a version of the new stuff. No pattern, I basically looked at pictures for inspiration and figured it out on my own.
Not as many projects as the previous month but we took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather to go to the localish Crystal Grotto Caverns, the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, the National Aquarium, and the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History! So much of my sewing/crafting time happens during naps, and while we had some long car trips I typically have to sit in the back and entertain Davy which makes it pretty hard to get any knitting or stitching done. Totally worth it though, we had lots of fun. The Smithsonian Institutions are open on Thanksgiving and I think that might have to become a family tradition while we are near the DC area – it was so much less crowded than a normal day!
