Craft night

My friend and I got crafty again tonight. I found a fun bulletin board project in April/May 2007 Sew News (pattern/directions found here). We stopped at the fabric store a few weeks ago and bought fabric and trims. Mine is for my sewing room; hers is for her new kitchen. The project should probably only take an hour, start to finish. Throw in a rough day and a couple martinis and it will take you three hours!

Raw materials:



Finished projects:
Bonnie's - The tacks were made from rhinestones and some of the daisy trim. The black polka dot fabric is actually a pocket. How cool is that?!:



Linda's - Click on the photo to see the cool double ribbon hangar she made:

Those turned out great and the trim is so straight in spite of the Martini's

Dear Needles & Yarn:
Don't despair my little lovelies. I haven't abandoned you. It's just that your cousins - fabric and thread - are so much faster than you. You guys need to pick up the pace.

But I still love you and will post some pictures of you very soon. Perhaps even tonight.

Love,
Bonnie
