Friday was a snow day…got the day off work and the whole weekend at home, so I have time for sewing and cross country skiing in the neighborhood.
I’ve been wanting to make a lanyard for the name badge I wear at quilt guild meetings. Picked up the findings at Joanns and some sewing themed fabric from my stash. Here’s the online tutorial I used: http://www.genxquilters.com/2013/03/10-minute-sewing-project-how-to-sew.html
I think it turned out great! I guess I could have figured out a way to make it adjustable, but it works as something simple for now. Can I make one for you? Check out the Shop page for more details.
Here’s the view outside my window above the sewing table this afternoon. So peaceful!
A member of my quilt guild is looking for patriotic quilts to display at the North Plains Library this spring. I’m going to enter this table runner / small wall hanging. It would be fun to see my work hanging up in a public display!
Sometimes I sew at home, but it’s also fun to travel to sew with others. I enjoy sharing this hobby with my mom (and using her large kitchen island as a place to pin projects). It’s also fun to go to a quilt guild event or quilt store to sew with others. Once in awhile, my friends get together and we have Piece and Quiet, a time to do whatever hobby/project you want in community with others (and bonus, we get DQ blizzards at the end of the night!)
