Since I can't share my purse progress (but will blog it fully in April, after voting is complete), I WILL post some pictures this weekend of an old UFO that I want to finish this year. It's an oriental CQ vest that I pieced and worked on, then sent around in a round robin a couple years ago. It still needs some CQ work on it, then stitching up. Being fall colors (you'll see), I plan to finish it up this summer to wear in the fall.
Also, I'm going shopping later today. DH and I are going on an outing to my favorite antique store, Mormon Trader Antiques. You may remember from my posts last year here and here that my friend Joan has a wonderful assortment of vintage clothing and lace (also here). For my birthday this weekend, I asked DH for a gown for my vintage dress form, Victoria (I know, real "original" name, LOL). She has an 18" waist, and it's nearly impossible to find anything else that looks good on her. ;-) So, we're off to shop. I'll share pictures of any treasures I find, too!
In the meantime, I'll just share a picture that I haven't posted here before, but many of you may have seen it in my Stitchin' Fingers album or at CQI. It's a posy I did a couple years ago on a Roses-themed round robin block for a friend.
Until next time,
