Well my crafting expedition resulted in me finally finishing my Fair and Square friendship squares. Here's what I did:
This is the second cube I've made - the first one I made for a client in my finishing service. These are really quick to do and look cute.....I think this is a new favorite finish of mine. Do ya'll know how to make them? Want a tutorial? (let me know if you would like one...I'll make one with my next set of squares if there is interest....)
Next up: Yep....thanks to all the enabling on the wide-world of blogs I ran out and got my own set of Emma Gingher's...I don't know anybody named Emma, but it was going to be Jacob's name if he was a girl in my twin set...it was going to be Ian and Emma, instead we got a Ian and Jacob, and I'm glad for that ;) SO here's my Emma, displayed with Sylvie's lovely robin fob she made me for the Seasonal Exchange. (lookie Sylvie...perfect, eh?!)
Thanks to Jill I had the Emma dressmaking shears in my basket...I was going to get it because Joann's has a fabulous sale going on today (maybe the entire weekend?) on gingher's (40% off without a coupon)...anyway...I had those babies in the basket and was going to get them until my Catholic Guilt started in...then I put them up. LOL! I'm happy with my 4" Emma's and I didn't need those shears anyway....
Next up some helpful hints:
