Curves Class is wrapping up, with next week our last. The class has been so fun! In fact, it went even more smoothly than I had imagined. But, of course, I'm still feeling a bit of release as we near the end, a bit of, "I made it!". One thing I'm looking forward to doing now is making "merit badge" gifts for campers. Our arrangement is that any camper who finishes 1 project from each week of class by March 31st earns a handmade something from me. There are only 20 campers, so I know I won't be overwhelmed by that commitment! Happily, lots of them are going to make it.
Which is just the excuse I need to fiddle around with scraps!
Nope, I'm not one to keep the gifts hidden. I think I inherited the spoiler gene from my mom! But, my other excuse for showing the gifts is that I think I'll let them choose on a first done, first serve basis. That will increase their chances of getting a gift that they really like. And, them liking it is really the whole point. (Plus, then I don't have to choose. Win-win.)
Maybe you recognize this first one? I'm calling her Oodalolly Reformed. She's the center of versions 1-3 of Oodalolly remade into a journal cover.
Plus, a big black dot thrown in on the inside flap. Loud and colorful, anyone?
Curvy Log Cabin has at heart a little log cabin block I made when testing some ideas. It's a color palette I can't seem to get enough of.
It's refreshing to make something smaller after doing so many quilts lately. Not that I'm taking a break from quilts (hahahahaHA), but just that I haven't been doing enough small projects lately. The instant gratification is yum.
Those scissors were destined for the back of a quilter's journal cover. Delightful.
More "smaller" in the works. This time, even smaller yet...
