Happy Colors and new scissors

While walking the dog this morning I kept noticing the bright blue sky and the springy yellow green of the trees and I realized I was smiling - the colors just made me feel happy!

I received a gift from Havel's Sewing for doing the QATV taping and today I used my new scissors for the first time. I needed to cut out more circles for the applique pieces I'm doing in my 365 red circles daily project. Most of the fabric I cut today was silk and the serrated edge on the 7"fabric scissors handled the silk beautifully. Really nice scissors, thanks Havel's.

This is the pile I cut, I also cut the fusible lightweight woven interfacing that has been fused to the back of the silk for more stability. Some of the silks are very lightweight and the interfacing makes them much easier to work with.

Here are #93- #99 of the 365 red circles daily stitching.

Indigo and rust daily stitching # 21 - #27

Week #14

March and April's monthly notion project.

I have an idea bouncing around in my head that wants to be another daily project, I keep trying to convince myself that I really don't need another project, but the idea is pretty persistent. It may end up being an almost daily project and not a year in length. I'll keep you posted.

  1. Love what you're doing with the notions. I don't know how you are keeping up with so many daily projects, but they all look great. I admire your tenacity.

  2. OH, these are lovely too!
