It’s awfully hard to share crafty goodness this time of year.
Among my usual drafting and scheming for future projects, I’ve been working on some gifts for people in my life. Obviously, I can’t show you that, so I thought a quick tour through some of my Instragram photos might be fun!
The Coke bottles you see above are part of a bottle organ created by my son and and his friends. Among other things, they played the Tetris theme song. Who says kids are only interested in video games? 😉
No idea what I’m talking about? Check out The Bottle Boys on YouTube. You’ll be entertained, I promise!
During the course of this past week, I worked on the binding for my Harry Potter alphabet quilt. I started with scrappy binding after a discussion with my trusty bee friends. Sadly, the awesome swirly purple didn’t make it in, but the rest of the lovely fabrics did!
Here it is, binding all done! I finished up last night while I caught up on Big Bang Theory.
Look for photos of the quilt itself when it stops raining or on Talk To Me Tuesday…whichever comes first!
Wait, what’s that in the background? Yep, the bottle organ is still on my kitchen table!
Also this week, I mended the buttons on my favorite coat. This is a lovely double breasted jacket I found in a consignment shop years ago. The buttons were just looking sad, so I searched my thread for the perfect color and, wallah, good as new!
