Table runner I'm crocheting didn't look good hanging down from the windowsill as I planned, but it will make a pretty placemat for the tray I use to hold my laptop.

As a result it's almost done. The stitch is called "spike stitch" (I never knew the name, even though I've used it before.)

I bought a few new shirts, and somehow in trying to match them with shorts, found I have several cutoffs that need shortening, so I ended up with a good size stack of mending to work on next.

See how finishing up a project (the latest dresses) fires you up for more? Keep up the momentum.

how clever of you. i am devoted to that site, so many good ideas. couple of days ago i printed the entire tutorial on the tattered flowers. will use on aubrey dress. i am not happy with the tattered edges. will try to make them more of a finished look. a case of two great minds thinking alike. lol.

I wondered before if you were on their mailing list. I wanted to forward this one because several of them are different and very pretty.

Their site is my go to place for sewing questions.

putting finish touches on lilly's little dress. i got the pattern yesterday for the big project. princess dress. it has lots of steps but none are all that hard. i am not going to line it and that will make it easier. waiting for the new scissors. that i know am getting for my b'day. think i need a nice sharp edge for the satin.
