So I pulled the few flosses I do have for the chart last night. I need to go to JoAnn today and buy the rest. I looked up conversion charts last night, I am going to use dmc of course. :)
Yesterday I took this...
|Madeleine's vest from Christmas Around The World|
and I made it into this...
|Christmas Around The World Pinkeep|
This vest has been sitting in her closet for over a year. I made it for Madeleine for Christmas Around The World at our church school for December of 2010. Her grade got Poland, so she and I dressed in costume. I had these freebie patterns I found a long time ago on a Polish blog actually. I personalized it with the owls, she loves owls. And of course I took out the cats and put in poodles! :)
Madeleine found it this morning in her room. I finished it after she fell asleep last night. She is very happy.
Well, I did finish the book I was reading,Quilters Academy. I kind of forced myself to read it actually. It is a good book, it is just a book to learn proper techniques and basics. Since I taught myself to quilt through books, I thought I should read this one also. I did pick up a few helpful hints, so I am glad I read it.
Okay, that does it for me today. I am off to JoAnn soon and the library too.
