This weeks finishes

I'm so excited to say I had finished my first woven rug.




Very pleased with how it turned out and the length is perfect for in front of the stove.



Next is one to lay in front of the sink.



Also finished "one thing with Amy" for this week
It was to take this woven fabric and cover these two pillow I have in the car.



The fabric I wove was not wide enough to a be wrap I was wanting so after some thought, decided to use some it.




It was a lot easier than I thought. I was worried about the fabric unraveling.  But with a simple zig zag stitch, no problems.

On the design wall I had these blocks that needed to be assembled


  
They are a very simple 4 patch block and was able to get these done and now I need to put together more to stitch.



What I have done so far.

My last finish is something so totally different.

It is a Boho wrap bracelet 



I had to purchase the leather cord and bead thread but the rest I had.



A pearl button and these pearl beads were leftover from something that one of my daughter's made.


After watching a few YouTube videos I was able to do one.
This was deliberately my practice piece. 



I figure it was going to be a learning experience and there are a couple spots where the beads were sewn wrong as you can see.



But even with those small blemishes,
it turn out pretty and I'll wear it. 


Plus these will great gifts.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
