Continuing our series of sharing the projects we're working on right now, let's hear from four more of our wonderful staff members!
Linda: My oldest is getting married next month and the quilt I'm making to celebrate the wedding involves appliqué. My approach has been evolving as I figure out how to use a Cricut cutter with Wash-Away Appliqué Sheets to achieve the best look possible. I'm loving the results! Another crafty project a few weeks back was all about getting Christmas gift boxes figured out—again using the Cricut. I seriously don't know how I ever lived without this wonderful machine. The results are magnificently precise!
Sue: Combining rubber stamping and watercoloring. Just getting the hang of it so no photo-worthy samples yet.
Debbie: I am always working on multiple projects. I carry a knitting project, or two, with me almost everywhere. Currently, socks for my brother, and a cotton facecloth (with which I am trying to teach myself a more ergonomic method of tensioning the yarn.) Then I am also designing a jacket to use Ikat fabric for the PIQF Going Global challenge. And I've started a denim quilt for my brother. And...
Tristan: Last weekend my daughter and I played with cement, wax, and a bit of paint. Still working on a final version for our 4-H fundraiser candle and succulent containers. Another recent project was dabbling in embroidery (while camping). A one-inch necklace for my niece’s birthday was painstakingly stitched in a tiny backpack tent under flashlight. A bit rough but made a happy birthday girl atop Mt. Whitney. Looking forward to refining my stitches in a larger project with proper lighting. One more project in the works is my beginner weavings from a floor loom that will transform into a kraft-tex bottom zip pouch. Great way to use fabric scraps!
