My dear friend LG and I have issued one another a challenge de sewing machine. She has a friend who used to make costumes, and same friend gave her a box of fabric scraps. We went through it. taking turns selecting bits, and cutting them in half. She took one pile of halves, I took the other pile, and we are going to be making crazy quilts and comparing the results. It's so fun to see how someone else uses the same materials. So here we are with mostly reds. It's a cat mat or a wall-hanging or a table covering or something. I used embroidery floss and beads to embellish. Sorry the focus is fuzzy.
And I also made a tea cozy. Decorated with floss and buttons and ruffled ribbon and beads. Oh my goodness I'm having fun! There are places where the seams didn't quite catch all the way along, so I embroidered the open parts closed. These feature golds, oranges and yellows.
I still have the blue and purple scraps to work with. The fun never ends!!
