Sew Crazy and a Knit Wit to boot!

It is Wednesday.  

We are, for all intents and purposes, iced and snowed in.

Of course that means, let's empty out the mending basket and start a few new projects.  


Because I can :)

Knit-wise, my needles have been monogamous to one project:  Montparnasse .  The back and left front are done.  Ready to cast onto the right side.  

Sewing bug bit me again in a big way.  (might have had a little help from the grumbling of someone that wanted his FAVORITE sweatshirt's been in the mending basket for about 2 months)

Monday and Tuesday, worked on and finished all five of the Travel Tea Cup Cozies that got started in December.  Will share them on Friday.  

Then, decided that my utility sink was UGLY to the max and needed some clothes...

My workspace desk chair was nekkid too.  Again...gonna have to wait until Friday...

This morning I woke up fretting about all the lonely fabric scraps in the cabinet crying out to feel the love.  Grabbed the scissors, straight edge, chalk, and got to it.  Well, except for the whole Bella sitting on some scraps I needed part.

Can you guess what it might be turning into? Can you can you huh huh huh???

For a Valentine's Day "present", started working on a slip nightie with some remnant satin with tone on tone hearts on it.  Woo Hoo, it's getting hot in here!!!  (Sorry, I'm stuck in the house, a little bored, and for some reason Jerry Springer is on the TV...)

Gotta go, so much sewing, so little time.  If you are the praying type, please send up a few that there WILL be school tomorrow.  'Nuff said.  

Go check out progress being made by other fellow knit wits at Tami's.


  1. I think I can guess what the one item is going to be....I have one from the same fabric that I dearly love that you made for me!

    Miss you, MFS!

    I love watching all your projects take shape!

  2. Ha ha Liz I know what you think it is but it isn't! But I'm glad you like the thing you thought it was ;)

  3. I'm glad you're keeping busy & making everything beautiful. We've had 7 snow days here so far this winter so I am definitely sending you good thoughts about the kids going back to school tomorrow. Hang in there!

  4. The knitting is beautiful, Dina! Hmm, I wonder what your sewing project is! I can't wait to see. Oh yeah, we use the same cat litter! ;)

  5. Nothing like lots of crafty projects to keep oneself from going crazy during all those school snow days! You have my complete sympathy and here's to hoping for some school! I love the cabinet pulls, so cute!

  6. Love the colors of your knitting. D calls my mending basket the bin of no return.

    If I had a nice sewing room like yours I might do the mending. Nah, I would sew other stuff.
