|I was so excited about this months FNSI hosted by Heidi and Bobbi!|
I also am thrilled to be a part of OPAM! All of these girls are encouragers. I sure would not have been in the sewing room last night if it weren't for them. Thank you to all of you.
I didn't know what I was going to work on but decided on something
that I thought would be quick and easy.
I picked the Potato Baker bag!!
|This was my first attempt to do this and I didn't do |
the best job but it will work fine for me. I made the bigger bag
so I could fit several potatoes in when baking them.
|Then I moved on to my new passion. Embroidery.|
I am like everyone else and have several projects
going on all at the same time. I have to see what mood that
I am in before deciding on which one to pick up and try.
|I found this project in the Sweet & Simple Embroidery book by Gooseberry Patch.|
It is a mug mat. I have already tried one and didn't do good at all on it.
So I tried a different thread and I like it much better.
|I love this project because it is so quick and simple to do. |
Now if I can just learn the stitches and make them look better.
|Please understand that I am just learning embroidery and I am not good at it but|
I am determined.
|Here is the Mug Mat completed. This is not the Mug Rug but I want to make that too. This is done with felt. It has 4 stitches-the blanket stitch,|
the stem stitch, the satin stitch & french knots.
I had such a good time doing it and now I will have to do 5 more to match this one.
I hope I improve every time I do one.
Thank you for the encouragement from the Friday Night Sew In & Once A Month Project.
