In last week's post I shared with you the start of my latest project: knit and crochet ice cream cones. Be sure to visit that post for links to the patterns. I was able to finish the project and add lots of sprinkles/beads to bring them to life. I loved how they turned out, though I don't think I will be making any for myself, well, except maybe for a soft serve.
My cousin and her fiance love the cones and plan to display them in their ice cream shop. Unfortunately I managed to chose flavours and styles of cones that they don't sell in their shop. I do believe they have sprinkles.
What's next? As I mentioned last week, I have a million un-finished projects that I do want to work on. I am going to put some pressure on my self and commit here to working on them.
- quilt and bind small Chinese inspired wall hanging
- finish plaid boxers - Completed January 20, 2012
- finish banana boxers - Completed January 20, 2012
- finish blue bug boxers
Be sure to check back next week to determine whether I achieve these goals. None of them will take much work, it's just a matter of me actually sitting at my sewing machine and working on them. My plan is to load a new audio book onto my ipod and listen to that while I stitch. I want to send the little wall hanging to my sister for her birthday in less than a month. Considering that Canada Post says I need up to two weeks mailing time, I don't have any time to waste.
Did you receive a BlackBerry Playbook for Christmas, Linda at living, quilting and stuff has posted instructions of how to sew the perfect cover.
Do you have plans to finish up a project that has been lingering for far too long. Share it here and I'll help encourage you along the way.
