What do you think about my updated look? I liked the brown from before, but it was starting to feel too dark. So I found this nice brighter theme. I think it is much happier looking than the brown 🙂
If you haven’t noticed, I am really terrible about taking photos. I know I need to get better about getting shots of all my projects, both finished & in progress. But I am usually just too tired to mess with the camera, so most of the time, I don’t. However, my best friend was kind enough to get an Action Shot of a mug rug that I made for her earlier this year. I was supposed to have it done as a Christmas 2010 gift. But that didn’t happen. I did at least get it done & delivered before Christmas 2011 though!!
The mug was a previous gift, so I decided to try & stick with that theme for the new rug. It took awhile to figure out what I was going to do, because I kept trying to figure out how to piece those cute rounded flowers into it. Eventually I realized I could just go with the traditional Friendship Star & try to match the colors. I think that worked out much better. I still think those flowers would be super cute, so I may try that out someday. But I am pleased with how this version turned out. Here are all three together that I made for my work friends.
So this is not actually what I have been up to lately. The things I need to take pictures of are – I started a new baby quilt & I finished the broomstick lace that I showed a progress picture of before. I will try to make myself get photos soon, & I still need to layer, baste & quilt those letter quilts. I will be happy to have those finished & on their way to my adorable baby cousins!!
What about you? What have you been up to lately?
