for those of you interested, this is the outside cover of what will become my crazy needle book. I went to a sew society meeting on Monday the 23rd and I saw one that was made back in 95 or 96 and I stared at that till it became embedded on my brain. That was completely Victorian and most lovely! For mine, I am using a 9 x 11 base and I hand-stitched pieces of Thimbleberries prints in odd sizes to my base. As seen here, I have appliquéd a few things on since arriving home yesterday. I have also done some embroidery and will do some other embellishments to the outside as well, including buttons and maybe a tatted item or two, etc,etc...I will post the next step or process when I get to that point!
We are going to go camping at Rose Canyon which is about 3/4 of the way up Mt Lemmon hwy just outside Tucson. That will be fun as I have camped there before. I certainly hope it isnt windy there. *wink*
I was asked to contract and order while I was gone and that project was given to another so I whined and hollered and have yarn coming in Friday or Saturday to take along to play with--otherwise, I am only taking crazy quilt stuff to play with and a baby afghan. But then again, maybe not the baby ghan--it only needs to border and that is wide and may need lots of reading till I get the pattern on. It is so much easier to take hand sewing so i may just do that!.
