January Projects, Part 3

Fiberworks.
 
A little Knitting.
 
Kroy FX
 
BabyCocktails' Gibson Shell in Mulberry Merino
 

a hat made from scraps
 
 
A little drapery making
 
 
For the city condo
 
A little learning something new.
Heirloom sewing.
The style of delicate table linens, camisoles and Christening outfits.
So while the men in my family have been on their computers getting the latest up to the minute ...er I mean up to the millisecond ...news on RG3's knee surgery, or fantasy Football stats, or 4 wheelers for sale, or videos of silly boy/man stunts,
I have been overcompensating the opposite direction absorbing pictures of fine Irish linens, beautiful monogramming and delicate lace.
 
So, I've bought a bolt of white linen...

I like the thought of heirloom sewing it was a true art. Beautiful work you do. B

Oh, what will the linen become? Love the burgundy yarn, so rich. My poor husband is surrounded by 3 girls, so he would likely love to hang with your guys!

I used to dabble in heirloom sewing when my oldest two daughters were little. We have some lovely little dresses.

I love that hat you made out of scraps!! The green and the white look so nice together.

Will be checking back to see what you come up with for the linen :o)

I really love that hat. My girls knit/crochet all the time but they've never combined them so intricately. Beautiful!
