This week I have been flitting between projects again, and even started a new one
(oh no, another ufo started)
Update on the Straight From The Heart Quilt
I auditioned some crocheted lace edging for around the Dresden plate.
Here it is, temporarily pinned in place, to see if I like it there ..... I do. So I shall carry on and crochet the rest to fit around the scalloped perimeter.
And these three free-form stitched "plus size inchies" (1.5ins) are surplus from a previous project, and have now made it onto this quilt.
There is a pink heart on the orange square.
I created the following crochet square for my Winter-Warmer project.
We, here in New Zealand, have just gone in to Autumn, so I am expecting some cooler weather shortly.
Then, my most favourite denim skirt "bit-the-dust" through old age and wear and tear. I am too heartbroken to throw it out, so I lovingly started to upcycle it into a Boho style skirt.
The idea is to cover all the threadbare worn areas and holes with cutesy stitcheries.
The skirt originally had four tiers. I have cut off the bottom scraggy tier (it was too long anyway), and started covering the 2nd tier as the photos show here - rustic stitching, raw edges, uneven shapes, basic (or zero) embellishing.
Then I shall add lace to the 3rd tier, and attach a shorter gathered fabric strip in place of the bottom tier if it looks ok.
And while I was stitching the purple one on, I was thinking about turning my denim jacket into a Boho one to match the skirt, lol.
