I’ve been a Craftsy member (and affiliate) for several years and I love it. When the mood strikes to take a class, it’s there waiting for me. And I can re-watch if I like. Rinse, repeat. Kind of like drinking wine?
These are so fun to make! And quick too. Love that. After making so many big quilts, then trying my hand at table runners and the like, then some Annie’s Bags, my projects seem to keep getting smaller and smaller.
My stash appears to be the same size. Odd.
But anyway, these are really fast to make, and fun to boot. Happy sewing or quilting or knitting! Whatever makes you happy.
Where should all my quilts go? They need to get out in the world and sometimes the best way to do this is to donate them. And it makes me happy!
This is my third year supporting this organization with another quilt donation for their Docs for Ducks Fundraiser in Eugene, Oregon. Here is a little bit about the Cascade Medical Team:
Our mission is providing free healthcare and health education, where medical services are severely lacking along with supporting community development projects to the impoverished population in the Highlands of Guatemala. Our passion is changing lives.
My new favorite hobby! Knitting. Yep, as a quilter I went over to the “dark side.” But I’ve found, as all knitters before me, that it’s easy to work on knitting projects in the car, to stop and start them; which just isn’t the case with sewing.
My favorite designer is Elizabeth Smith (photo credit to her on the right!). I’ve made several of her patterns and they are all wonderful and have excellent directions and photos. I’ve made her Saturday Sleeves, Castaway Top, Summer Soundtrack Cowl….and I have her Summer Soundtrack Top and Poncheta in my queue.
The picture on the left is my version of her Summer Soundtrack Cowl. And I’m now working on her Summer Soundtrack Top because I liked the pattern no much. And no, I’m not an affiliate, I don’t know her personally, I just happen to like her designs: simple and modern. And because I’m a new knitter, I’ve found that her directions are clear and understandable.
