Yesterday, I went to my quilt group at the church. Since I actually threaded a needle and put some stitches into the quilt, I will count that as my effort for the day. The church ladies are hand quilters. Although I can hand quilt, it is not my preferred method, so my skill level is not as high as many of the others. I know I would get better if I practiced more, but I don't see that happening any time soon, since I own 4 sewing machines, and love to use them.
I have read on other blogs about altered books. I haven't been tempted to try (though I heard a rumour that Grandma Coco has it on her to do list). However, today I completed an altered sweatshirt. A friend works at a local high school. When she received the shirt she had ordered for spirit days, it was way too big. So I recreated it.
I love the batik I used for the facings, and now I am wishing that I had bought more. Since the shirt was in my UFO box, I am sure that the fabric is no longer available.
Since I like how it turned out, I am wondering if I have a sweatshirt of my own, that I might like to alter.
