Lucky

Happy St. Pat's Day to ya! Are you feeling a little Irish- even if your not? I am. Especially with these thrifted St. Pat's Day needlework. I have been learning to like unfinished needlework lately now that I have some patience to finish things.

St. Patty Decorations

This weekend was highly unproductive. Mainly because I had to make a trip to Boston on Saturday. Have you ever tried to get to North Station right after the Bruins game lets out? Not fun I tell you, not fun. I am feeling good that I can wrap up a few projects before I go on vacation- chiefly some quilts that either need the quilting finished or the binding.

Thanks for all the great suggestions on what to take for photographs in San Francisco and for where to go. I'll let you know soon what I end up deciding upon for a vacation photograph project. I've never been to San Francisco....

I did finished the corset deconstructed shirt project from Alabama Stitch. I love how simple it was to do and that it used cheap and easy material. I don't like finding out I am really a medium when i just made something in a small though. I have issues with rushing through things. So I am going to scrounge up some other shirts and try it in medium. Sorry for the dangling threads, when I realized the shirt was going to be scrap I sort of left things as is.

I bought the Alabama Stitch Book this weekend,I loved the Project Alabame line, but had no idea she was coming out with a book. I just cut out the corset t-shirt last night. I really enjoy the blog, especially the quilting, as I'm currently obsessed with making Denyse Schmidt quilts.
