I think I promised someone that there'd be something new and different amongst this month's projects, so I hope I don't disappoint. I ended up going back on a project I originally wanted to do because, well, I couldn't picture doing it anymore.
I'm just that fickle sometimes and since it's all about me, I couldn't be putting the project out there knowing that I, myself, had no interest in it anymore. Make sense?
Just don't hate me for being absurd sometimes - that's all I ask.
Anyway - to get back on track, let's go to our August winner, Ms. askercado, who created these lovely green patchworked placemats with some impressive stitchery skill to which I will aspire.
The straight lines. The perfect stitchery. It's all just too much.
Seriously, friend, WTF? That's hot. I don't even want to think about what any patchworked placemats I made would look like. Which is why I baked cookies. *Sigh* But this is about YOU.
You and your sweet ass placemats and WOO your sweet ass prize!
So, missy, please send me your full name and address to finnyknits AT gmail DOT com and when Gmail is done being haunted (it no sendy right now - sadness), I will get your prize together and ship it off to you. Congrats!
Now, for the pseudo new and different projects for this month...
(Don't forget to post your project to the pool by 9/30 so that maybe you get picked as the winner. That's what we all want, right? To have our greatness confirmed by way of link love and prizes? Indeed.)
For the stitchers, we have two choices:
1. The always useful and soon to be my fall/winter laptop conveyance device: The Covered Canvas Tote.
The stash is quaking in its boots right now because it knows I'm coming for it. Also, my stash wears boots.
2. The always useful and soon to be Jada's fall/winter poop bag conveyance device: The Doggie Poop Bag Pouch.
This is not Jada. This is Jada.
And for the bakers, there's but one project. Because when berries are in season, one really only needs a single project: The Berry Buckle.
In case you couldn't guess, I will be making these with blackberries. You feel free to do the same OR DIFFERENT. It's about you now.
And that, friends, is all I have up my sleeve right now. I mean, I'm wearing a tank top so technically don't *have* sleeves, so I'm thinking this is a pretty good show. For a sleeveless gal.
Wow. I need a nap.
