I finished the first blue baby lovie, and listed it on Etsy. However it is reserved for someone, so I need to start making another one tonight. I think it turned out nice.
I’m always thinking about ways to use some of the vintage denim that I have collected, all of it worn by family members. Last night I thought it would be cute to make denim coaters and hot pads with homespun tree shapes. At first I was going to cut out the trees, but then I figured out how to fold them out of a square, origami style, and there it was! They look so much more finished with the red borders. You can see more pictures on Flickr or at http://www.countrybydesign.etsy.com.
Thanks, one and all, for figuring out how to use Flickr to upload photos to WordPress. It is so much faster and easier, and it saves on space, too.
