Production Line

I finished my ornaments for Amy's Ornament Exchange...sweet and simple crocheted flowers. I love how they turned out, but I hope the recepients are not disappointed with the simpleness of them. I had wanted to do snowflakes but after three failed attempts, I fell back on my little flower.


My ATC trade group met yesterday and this month we added a little gift exchange for those that wanted to participate. 7 of us did. I made these scarves (the cream is a linen blend) for the other ladies and I came home with some awesome presents. I have so many pictures to take and post!

These were so easy to make and they have such a wonderful Japanese vibe to them. I bought enough linen to make 6 more so that is on my to-do list this week:) I sewed all yesterday afternoon and had a wonderful time until I ran out of every lick of cream. white, and light grey thread that I own. I seriously have emptied 5 spools this last week with all the sewing that I have been doing. So I might have to make an emergency run to Joanne's after church for thread.

Here's a great tip on buying thread...the colours you use the most like white, beige black even navy blue buy the good quality cones. You can buy a cone holder thingy you set up beside your sewing machine that will help to use it with a home sewing machine. You'll have lots of thread for lots of projects! Cones are a bit pricey but if you compare it to all the little spools you buy it is a better deal in the end.
Now those ornaments are lovely! And those scarves...yummm!!
