I thought I would show a few things I have been working on, crafty-wise. It's too hot to even walk in the garden these days, though I do it to water and pick veggies and fruit. So I've been inside, sewing and crocheting. I can't work upstairs in my craft room because it isn't air conditioned. I can't bring all my paper crafting stuff downstairs, (way too much!) but I've brought my sewing things to the kitchen/family room and set up a work space for the duration.
I made up these pillows earlier this summer. I am redecorating our kitchen from dark country colors to lighter cottage/farmhouse colors. It was fun working with a different palette. They actually match the sofa better than this picture shows. I will be posting about the new kitchen soon.
I made this bag from an Annie Downs book. The panel is made with felt, then added to the patchwork bag.
I'm using it to store this work in progress, a ripple afgan, from a pattern by Lucy from Attic 24. Again, the colors are for the kitchen, they perfectly match the new rug we bought.
I will continue to work on my afgan this weekend, and I've got a few more projects in mind. What are your crafty projects this summer?
