After seeing Randi's post about her cute pillow for the Pillow Talk Swap. I had to cruise on over and take a look. There are sooo many cute, cute, cute pillows over there! I really might have to join an upcoming round. :)
It got me thinking about doing a tutorial for a pillow of some sort. Anyone interested? I wouldn't have time until after the Holidays, but it might be fun to start off the year that way! I have a friend who is a beginning sewer and I told her that I would post some simple tutorials here to get her started with some projects. I think this would be a good little project for that.
Right now I am knitting knitting knitting away at a sweater for one of my nieces for Christmas. I am under a little time crunch for all I want to do for Christmas this year. I hope I can get them all done. I made pretty significant progress this weekend. I have the back of the sweater finished and one of the front side pieces about 75% finished. Still have to do the other side and the sleeves.
Then I am thinking of sewing an Imke shirt from this book for another niece. I have been drooling over this book since it came out a while back. I finally broke down and bought it a couple of weeks ago. I already had one of the patterns that is in it, but it is one of my favorite patterns to work with, so I figured I probably couldn't go wrong with the book. My only hesitation is that it works a lot with knit fabrics. I have never enjoyed working with knits, but I am going to give it another go. We shall see how that goes....
