I have decided that I want to make a couple of things for it each month but needed to give myself a real boost to start it first. The one thing I knew from the moment I bought the drawer is that I was going to stitch the letters for 'borduren' for the top right section. There were just enough spaces for it. This is the Dutch word for stitching.
I plan to decide as I go along what I want to use in each space. I think it will be fun coming up with something each time. While finishing the letters, I knew the four long spaces just under the word would be perfect for scissor motifs. I am using ThreadWorx overdyed thread for this project. I will switch back and forth using color 10351 - Rustic Brown Cherry and 1077 - Pottery. I really love how this thread looks in the dark wood drawer.
As you can see, there is a good deal more work to do on this project. I am not setting myself a time limit on it but just want to enjoy each and every stitch!
This past weekend, I started a new quilt project. I had made a lace crazy quilt tablerunner many years ago for a class I gave on making crazy quilting traditional or modern. I would love to make a large crazy quilt using floral fabrics and lace. There is an old fashioned shop in a village near us that I knew would sell lots of lace. I bought a bag full to add to what I already have and started a few blocks this weekend. This will also be a project that I will make a block or two for as I work on other things in my quilt studio. It will be fun to work on between sewing other things.
Hope you week starts off creatively!
