This past week I was only able to play around with a few things.
I tested out embroidering leather on my embroidery machine. I'm very happy with how it turned out and am cautiously looking forward to playing with the red leather that I picked up at Badon Hill last year.
And finally, I slow stitched this crochet edge fleece blanket. I really like how the rainbow yarn came out. It's just a small blanket using some leftover fleece, but its one more thing out of my stash and ready for someone to use.
I had a very busy weekend with an all-day sword-smithing event yesterday, during which I sewed 25 sword covers and added bias tape to a Dagorhir member's surcoat. Today we had church and a birthday party for a friend's one year old son, who was obviously worn out by the end of it but was a trooper and I think he had fun.
I just got home a few minutes ago and I only have a couple hours to relax before I have to go to bed. If I'm not too tired to stitch after a hot shower, I'm going to attempt to work on this Life if Beautiful block next. I'm having a little trouble deciding what colors to make the other two butterflies.
How was your weekend?
