Now that my big projects are done for now, I'm working on some smaller things until we leave on our trip.
The piece of furniture I use as a coffee table is actually a vintage two child school desk. It has adjustable height legs, and two cubbies underneath. The twins often sit at it to eat, so I made the some placemats to help keep the table cleaner.
I made them three placemats each, so they can have extras to use while some are in the laundry. I took a pic of all six, but usually there are only two on the table ;-) I've been storing the extra placemats in the desk cubbies. I've already had a request for placemats from DD#1 for her kids, so it looks like I'll be making more. They are really quick to make, no piecing, just using novelty fabrics, so it's an easy request to fill.
I had hoped to make all the little ones in my life superhero capes this past Christmas, but as usual, I ran out of time. I only had two done in time for Christmas.
I finished this Zelda-inspired cape, which I can hand deliver on our trip. I'm hoping to have the twins capes done before we leave too. I was working on one of those today, but I was interrupted, and never got back to it.
I've realized that it's these little projects I tend to put off so long. I forget how quickly something like a cape can be made, since I'm used to making huge quilts which can take months. If I just made some little things the priority, I can knock several things off my to-do list in just a couple weeks. I guess the crux of the matter is simple. I'd rather be quilting!
Some So Cal Machine Love!
