Room Sign

I had some letters leftover from making myself a Clemson sweatshirt that I decided I would try and use. Surprisingly, I almost had enough for this sign. I had already used the only M in "Clemson," so the M in "room" is actually a W. One of the Os is actually a Q with the tail cut off, which made it a smidge shorter. The apostrophe is improvised as well since there were only periods. At least there were two Rs. I used fabric left from the airplane quilt. To hang it, there is a sleeve on the back for a dowel.

O Selvedge Tree

A beautiful 60 degree day in March, and what am I doing? Making Christmas decorations naturally.

I'd been saving selvedge for a while and I decided I needed to do something with it. I didn't have all that much, so I vaguely thought I would just make a little pin cushion. Not all the dots were the same length though, so I decided to stack them by length. Once I realized I could make a tree, I was sold. It shifted a bit during sewing, so it's a bit of a wonky tree.

The star at the top was leftover from the 3D ribbon trees. It was not originally a button, so it had to be turned in to one with the assistance of my handy rotary tool.

If you hold it up to the light, it looks like it's snowing!
