I do this often. I bought a beautiful skein of yarn with absolutely no idea what I would make out of it. Before I left for Hawaii a few weeks ago, I made the decision to make the Leaf Cravat scarf by Teva Durham. You can find the pattern here at Interweave Press. I'm still a workin on it. It is very pretty and will be beautiful when it's blocked. Why is it so much more fun to begin a project than to finish?
So that's what I did. I started something new. I found this very fun fabric at Sarah's Fabrics in Lawrence, KS. I've got something special planned for it. Haven't you seen owl's everywhere lately? I remember my Mom's collection of macrame and crewel owls on our kitchen wall back in the 70's. Well, they're back!
I also went to Sarah's to buy a piece of Liberty of London fabric. I made a dress for DD2 when she was little out of their exquisite fabric. It's seriously expensive, so I only bought 1-1/2 yards. I'm planning on making a sleeveless top. Maybe if I post it on here, I'll get it finished. I see that Liberty has a new line out at Target. I'm curious to see the quality. There can be no way it's as beautiful as their beautiful cotton lawn.
