I finally ordered the hardware to make two dog harnesses for Wolfgang. Yeah. I can't wait. He will have a sweet custom harness made by his mom. I should get the hardware next week and by that time I should be done making the (never ending) granny square blocks for DD's quilt (I have 7 more to make). I have a lot of fabric to make a boy harness and I'm thinking about making one of them scrappy with some blue and white fat quarters I have in my stash. He looks good in blue.
Today I found a great fabric to make new kitchen curtains. I need new curtains desperately and I hate buying them already made when I can make them so easily. I found this sweet pre-printed dresden plate fabric which is 90" wide. I was going to get a solid turquoise but I couldn't resist a quilt design on my fabric. The yellow and blue will definitely brighten my kitchen up.
I currently have a sheer on the window with roosters embroidered on them with a super heavy, crazy looking valance. I love the roosters, but I hate the red checked fabric because it's so dark. When I make my new curtains I'm going to double the fabric so I can have more privacy in my kitchen and I'll have the right side of the fabric showing on the inside and the outside which will be lots of fun.
Here is a peek at my current curtains. Ugh!
This is the sheer curtain.
This is the valance.
The other day I received my order of red, white and blue fabric to make a new patriotic door decoration. This will be a project for later in the year. I currently have a patriotic door decoration that I made last year. It is a dresden plate made with red, white and blue bandana fabric and under the dresden plate I appliqued three stars. It was okay for a first effort but I've decided I want one big star in red white and blue using solid fabrics.
Another project I'm adding to my to do list is a new door decoration for fall. I would love to make it as a sunflower. I don't think I'll have time to make it this year, so it's going on the future to do list. I want to use yummy 100% wool felt in pretty fall colors for this project.
So I'm off to make more granny square blocks.
