well, i feel like i haven't been working on much lately, due to my foot, but i do have several projects in the works.
sunday before last, saf and liz took me to the outlet mall near my house and pushed me around in a wheelchair. sadly (snort) i have no pics of that. however, at the kate spade store, liz saw a little pouch she liked, and we joked about making it and embroidering "kate spade" on it. well, it was a shape of pouch i haven't made before, but it looked simple enough, so i sketched it out. then, i got to work piecing together some of the bazillion hexies i've made. so far, i've got a pieced panel for one side of the pouch, a zipper the right length, and linen for the rest of the outside. i still have to pick lining fabric and actually stitch it together.
i also promised saf a hexie pouch. i swapped on flickr with someone for a bunch of little charm squares for hexies, and she included a set from Anna Maria Horner's Innocent Crush line. saf liked those, so i whipped up hexies out of them, stitched them together, and let her pick a grey linen for the base of the pouch. after three trips to joanss (while on painkillers!), i finally ended up with a zipper in a proper color. i've got some AMH Innocent Crush yardage left over from a purchase for a swap partner, so i'll pick one for the lining.
maybe i'll manage to get both of these done this week. crossing fingers . . .
and just because he's super cute, here's ozzie napping today:
