Week in Review October 12, 2014

It’s been a week. Very little sewing done, but lots of odds and ends taken care of in the studio in bits and pieces.

Finished up the chalk board placemats. Here is a picture of the backside. Lots of fun fabrics. I did take pictures for a tutorial so I guess that is pretty productive as that slows down the process. Chalk Board Placemats Back side I finished sewing up this iPod holder from our monthly mini retreat. iPod HolderWe have two of our grandchildren all week so I prepared these silk scarves for a project with Grace and Noah. Fabric dying in a way I can handle. I think. Inked Silk Scarf

I told Grace and Noah that we were going to make scarves for their mommy for Christmas. Grace wanted to wait until Mother’s Day. I’m hoping they can keep it a surprise until Christmas.

This project is actually in preparation for November’s mini retreat project which I will be unable to attend so I am going to give it a try on my own.

Slow week in the studio, wish I could say the same for the rest of my life.

On the Journey, Jackie

    Seems like you had a very productive sewing week. I can’t wait to see more about the sharpie fabric dying!

      Hi Diane, I’m anxious to see how the dying goes as well. It looks like a super simple process. Giving a 4 and 6-year old permanent markers however…..

    Scarves will be a good gift. Tell Grace she can make a spring version for Mother’s Day.

      ​I have no idea why Grace has Mother’s Day in her head. What 4-year old thinks of those things? ​

    I haven’t seen chalkboard fabric here in Italy yet. I would love to try it out! The placemats look really fun!

    I look forward to hearing about your Sharpie dying/grandkid gift project. It might be something for Sam and Maddy to make for their grandma’s this Christmas…although I already KNOW they’ll blab within the first 2 minutes of talking to them afterwards LOL. Thanks for sharing!

    • Jackie

      Of course they will blab. It’s the grownups responsibility to “forget.” 🙂 Hopefully we’ll get started on it before their parents return from vacation. The week has flown.
