DQ said she would like to see me tackle something I bought in December. At first I thought she meant the Just Nan cube. I wasn't feeling it. Too much confetti. Then I went back and looked at what I bought around that time. I think she means this one:
So I looked at what I need to do it. It has this pink little square that goes on top.
It calls for Dusty Miller linen. To me it looks kind of bluey. I'll have to look through my stash and see if I have anything that might do. Then I was looking at the top. Are those flowers ? No, they are buttons. Hey, I could use real buttons. I wonder how that would look. I know I don't have all the GAST called for but I could probably substitute. I really like the other pin cushion from Hands On that I made a while ago.
I discovered that there is a new issue of Inspirations out. I like to go to Zinio and get the digital edition. This is a really good issue. I rarely make projects from magazines. But Inspirations is the exception. They publish more advanced projects of a great variety. I printed out three projects that I would love to make. I almost ordered the Pheasant kit from Jenny Adin-Christie when I ordered the Wren. I was so tickled to see it in the magazine. It is smaller than I thought but much sweeter. It calls for a lot of exotic threads. I may still order her kit but it is great to have the pattern to see if I could make it.
I love William Morris's strawberry thief design. Nicola Jarvis has designed several variations of the strawberry thief. I love this one.
Then there is Betsy Morgan's Tall Year Square. I haven't taken this class. Love the design. Now I can make it. Cool.
There are so many great things to stitch and so little time!
