    New project thread for 2020.

    Been working on it awhile, don't have any pictures yet, but working on a graduation gift for my nephew. Don't think they'd see it here, but will still refrain from further info until after gifting.

    That said, I finished a little project this year already. Last week, I picked up a scrap bag of pink fabric and one of beige fabrics at the LQS when I was in town. Already used the smallest pieces in the pink bag, I made 3 pot holders with the pinks (pulled a couple fabrics from my stash for binding and backing).

    Those are nice! I have my pot holder pattern out but have not gotten around to them.

    I'm crocheting on two afghans, same pattern, different yarn. I'll have to get photos to show you as I rather like the looks of them.

    I really like those pot holders. Those are always useful.

    I love the hot pads. I especially love the hearts. Has anyone seen the new Ken Burns, PBS craft documentary on quilts? I don't have the patience to sew, let alone quilt. I admire those who do.

    I am a button collector. Also like to make buttons sometimes. Gourd is very fun to work with and I've made quite a few gourd buttons. Someone requested a Santa and a snowman, so I made these. Gourd is rather like working with wood.

    What craft? Crochet, knit, quilt, something else?
    I don't have a pattern for potholes, as most are leftover blocks or pieces from full-size projects.

    The top of my pattern is pieced. Then I put it together with heat resistant batting.
    I've begun a crocheted baby blanket and still working on my prairie flower quilt, so have not got around to pot holders.
    And getting sidetracked with button projects!! I edit our state newsletter and am working on a comprehensive project of buttons that imitate fabrics. I ordered an expensive text book that was supposed to have actual swatches attached to illustrate each fabric type. The swatches are there, but NOT attached! And they are not in order, so I've been working to try and get the swatches matched to the correct illustration. Losing battle, I fear, as I am not knowledgeable enough.

    Those are so well done. I wouldn't have guessed they weren't wood. I didn't know gourds were used for buttons,or that they would be sturdy enough to use. You are very talented!

    Flower quilt I'm working on. I started appliquing the panels last April. Thought it would take me a lot longer to finish them all! Now I have to put the border around. flower quilt top.jpg

    Still no pictures, but I have 3 tops completed, will take them to quilt guild sewing night later this month, so I can sandwich and pin the layers to get them ready for quilting. I have a table runner in the works as soon as I feel good enough to sew; I've had the flu for over a week. [Two weeks or longer probably, but only saw the doctor a week ago.]
