I thought I'd be back here on Tuesday, but, you know, life. I really appreciate all your comments about chores/cleaning from earlier this week. If you find yourself in the same situation as me, there are some good ideas in the comments. I'm trying FlyLady for now. I'll let you know how that works out.
In other, much more exciting news – well, exciting for me – one of my projects is in the Fall/Winter issue of Stitch.
I made this cozy wool muff back in July and am anxious to give it a whirl as the temperature starts to drop. Did you have one of these as a young girl? It's a fun project that shouldn't take too long to make – an afternoon or maybe a bit more. It does require a little patience to sew through all the layers, but the construction is simple. I made mine out of wool and velveteen, but I think it would be equally as cute out of corduroy and flannel with a folksy ribbon. Let me know if you make one – I'd love to see photos!
I really like this issue of Stitch. It's full of great projects and many of them are well-suited for holiday gift giving. I just started to make a list of the items I am anxious to make and it's long. Too long to share. You'll recognize many of the contributing designers if you read blogs, which I assume you do because you are reading this. Really, it's all so good. And I'd still say that if my project hadn't been included. But it was, so yay!
