I'll bet a lot of you know what I've been working on from my photo...at least one of you does! The eventual recipients, as far as I know, don't know about Be*mused, but as more than one blogger has discovered, you never know who might be reading, so please don't reveal my project in the comments. Anyhow, patternwise, so far, so good! I was humming along when I hit a wall digging around my stash for some linen-y fabric to use and couldn't put my hands on it. Hate when that happens. Did I de-stash that last summer? I can't imagine, but in any case, JoAnn's is now added to the errand list for tomorrow.
Are you looking for some gift ideas to make? Yesterday someone emailed requesting my pillowcase pattern so I decided to link to my old posts on this project and offer the instructions again to anyone who'd like them. They're easy to make, easy to personalize with all the specialty fabrics available today and who couldn't use a new pillowcase? (And if it's not their taste, at least they don't have to wear it!) Read about them here and here and let me know in the comments if you'd like the pattern.
I have been antsy all week, buzz, buzz, buzzin' with new ideas and projects in the queue. I told you those recent trips made a difference in my outlook and I wasn't kidding! Now to just get a handle on holiday prep. Why can't these creative bursts be timed better?
One last thing. You must click over and check out this in-progress quilt. *swoon*
