So in January I participated in the Grow Your Blog hop, my first blog hop! I had my first give away and my blog has celebrated its first year!! All in 2015 and we are only in February! Love it!!
I also wanted to participated in some block swap or challenge, so I've picked
This month, the theme was "DOTS". I was not sure what to do but I thought it wouldn't be hard to find something, right? I mean DOTS!! Every body has dots in their stash, right? I am no exception! So I kind of set it aside, thinking it is easy and in the bag. Last week I started a new job and was too tired to sew when I realized the challenge was for TODAY!! And I have DONE NOTHING for the challenge yet! YIKES!!
So I looked at what I was working on. Oh! Look! DOTS!! :D
I made this little project at the end of January, my wonderful little rocking footstool.
After, I started to work on the cushion. It was on my wall for a little bit. It was my leader/ender project while working on the RSC2015 blocks.
So now I have a pretty cushion for my wooden chair. I love it. I've put a rusty pipping around it because I didn't like all the selvages "connecting" to each other.
Another thing I am making with dots is Butterflies. See dots?
They are Fabric Origami Butterflies. I ♥♥♥ these. They start with two rectangle sewn with right sides together then flipped inside out. Sew by hand the opening shut and press.
Scissors and thimble to show the size of this little butterfly.
I am linking with Le Challenge and with Slow Sunday Stitching hosted by Kathy as these little creatures have their folds tacked down by hand. I also sew a pin at the back so the recipient can wear her butterfly on a purse, tote, coat lapel, hat, anywhere! Did I say I ♥ these!!
Next is the winners announcement post. (I AM trying to hurry lol.)
See you in a bit.
