Pumpkin Storage basket



Seems summer is not a good time for crafts. I didn't do much recently, lots of garden work need to do. :))

A blanket design for using sample books



When I saw this interior decor fabric sample lot, I was attracted by the shining look . I thought it would be nice to make satined glass appliqués with them, but they are too thick to make appliqués.
Most pieces are 5"X12", so I thought about those simple blocks with large pieces. When grouping them in colors, finally, I drew two slightly different patterns with the same block. The first one looks like windmills, the 2nd looks like stars to me.

Hanging organizer for the Sewing Chair



This hanging bag was made to hang on one side of my sewing chair, so when sewing I don't have to dig through those fabrics on the table trying to find scissors,threader cutter, or markers.

A little ribbon embroidery add some color to the whole project.The tulips are made of 4mm silk ribbons, and the butterfly was made of black and white DMC cotton floss, 4mm and 2mm silk ribbons. I love to combine different techniques.
