On Connie’s Play Desk

19 Aug

This past week has been a little strange.   Things have been really quiet – my kids are back in school, and there were no camps or classes.  I have been cleaning and organizing the studio getting ready for this coming week.  I am really excited for fall and our new class schedule!

We have lots and lots of new fabrics!  Mostly cotton and fleece and they are so yummy!  I can’t wait to see what our students make with them!  This was the first time I had ordered fabric on-line and it turned out to be a very nice experience.

There are a couple of new samples up in the studio.  Both of these samples are from Simplicity Pattern #1455.  This pattern is a very good one for beginners – the shirt can really be a 2nd or 3rd project with the skirt following it.  I loved playing with this fabric!!  As for me, besides working in the studio on Let’s Go Crafting, I kind of bounced around between projects:

I worked on this rainbow blanket for one of my daughters.  I am now more than half way done and am feeling energized to finish.img_4152

These are sleeves for a sweater for one of my other daughters.  They need to be 25 inches in length as she wants them long with a thumb hole.  The body of the sweater is mostly done and awaiting the sleeves so I can finish it.  This sweater will also have a hood attached.img_4151-1

There was also some cross stitching done on a Christmas stocking for one of my sons.img_3579

And a birthday cake was made!  My oldest celebrated her 23rd birthday on Friday so I made her favorite cake!  All-in-all a very nice week.
