Ok, so lots happened last week. Let's see. Stuyvesant Town has been sold (or a bid has been accepted, at least - thanks for the link, Laura!). We had a small flood in the bathroom the other night after the water was shut off and the toilet inexplicably flooded (so much for that "luxury" living, right?). And I still look a little frightening, with bruising and swelling all over my face. But I'm certainly on the mend and happy it's almost over.
So this is project #1 for my class. It's a cover for a throw pillow, with a button closure at the back. I think it will be a good starting project, and it can be embellished in any number of ways. I made my sample to match my first quilt, which is nearly finished. But it could be pieced with lots of different fabrics, or you could attach yo-yos to it, or cover it with buttons and ribbons, or put piping around the edge... I'm thinking it's a great starting point for making holiday gifts.
And what are my plans for the week? Oh, laundry, vacuuming, spending lots of time with the kiddo, and maybe blogging more than once a week for a change. Maybe I'll even be back again tomorrow? We'll see.
