I also made some patchwork cards from a tutorial on the Craft Apple Blog. These are for gifts too - a birthday gift for one sister in law and a thank you gift for another. I did some in a diagonal pattern and some in a horizontal pattern. I think I like the diagonal ones better - what do you think? I find these ones to be a bit pink (except for the blue one - I really like that one), but I was using some quilt squares I got on ebay to make them. These quilt squares are the best for projects like this because they are grouped in coordinating fabrics, washed, ironed, and cut when they come. It really cuts down on my work time! I got each of these sets bidding no more than $2.01 for a 40-50 square set. Shipping is usually only $1.75-2.00, which I find very reasonable to not have to find matching fabrics and do all the prep work myself!! I have some fall fabrics and some black and white fabrics to make some cards with too. I'll post those when I get them done.
Finally, I've been working on crocheting winter hats for a friend of mine who has three kids. I found some new patterns and I'm really proud of the boy's hat! See, this is where the creativity is coming in! I may still be using the same purse pattern, but my hats are getting much more creative. I still have one more to do, but I thought I'd show you the two I have done already.
Okay, I feel much better now that I have posted this stuff. I cannot wait so long before posting again! Hopefully I will be a bit more prompt next time!
