I've been busy cutting fabric the last two days and putting them with the charts and placing them by my sewing machine so I can stitch around the edges. I've not taken pictures, but will at some point before the year starts.
I have 3 other projects that aren't listed that I know I'll start sometime in 2015 if I can find the right material. One of them is L&L's Mother's Tree that I'm going to do for my granddaughter, she is such a pink diva, so while I want to include pink in the design, I don't want to overwhelm it with PINK. So I'm looking for a hand dyed with soft pink, purple and greens.
Since she is the daughter of my step daughter I debated how I wanted to do it, I want my daughter's mother, grandmother, and greats as far back as I'm able to do because those are the women who helped to shape who she is today.
However I also feel like I should be in there too since I've raised her since she was 6 or 7, and I'm the only grandmother on our side that my granddaughter will know (her mother passed away when she was 6 / 7). So I talked to my daughter and asked her if she would be offended if I added myself in as her step mother. She was OK with the idea which made me happy.
So once I figure out the logistics of it all I will do the same with the Mother's Tree I may do for my daughter(s) and my sister's daughters should they have children because my Mom lost her Mom, and while she was a teenager when it happened, for us we only knew her step-mother, and she was a big influence on who I am today, so want to honor her by putting her as part of my history or my sister's history.
so that is one of the 3 other starts, the other two are Victoria Sampler's Teacher - need to find some banded linen and Ink Circle - Bright Idea.
