Shawl Wrap

I finally finished my shawl wrap I started back in August! I had to put it down when we were getting Tori ready to move to college...then John got sick...then I just got too busy! Sewing my skirt motivated me to pick up the shawl and finish it. It is warm and cozy.

Now what am I going to make?! Oh, yeah I have this material with little roses, I can sew curtains for Meg's room! Also, a king size bed sheet I bought at Goodwill in Florida...it would look so cute re-purposed as curtains in Tori's room! I think this will be my project for the week. Of course I won't get to sew until Thursday...tomorrow is date night & Wednesday is bible study.

I think I got the crafty bug back!

Okay...I have calmed down now and read your blog....VERY CUTE!!! I know what you can make next!!! A Shawl Wrap for Becky!!! I love it!!

Now crocheting I have tried (a scarf) I really liked doing it...it was fun to work on.

Heather said...

Hey, if you make a shawl for Becky, I need one, too. I'll pay you even more if you make mine first! Winters are cold here in Ohio! I would look great in a shawl by Betty!

Becky said...

Fun!!!! Let's make a trade!!! Don't listen to Heather, she is just joking!

e-mail me at Golden@go-concepts.com

Heather said...

Ignore Becky's next comment, whatever she says.

Heather said...

Alright, alright, give Becky the shawl. She's right, I've already gotten a package from Australia, and am getting a swap gift from South Africa. So, I guess I'll be the one to give up the shawl :(

Heather said...

Okay, I want a gray one, but make Becky's first, so she won't be mad.

You are so sweet. I am going to pay you; how much do you want?

My email is hkelsey@cinci.rr.com .

Thanks so much!

And thanks for the sweet comment on my posts these past couple of days. I really appreciate it.

The post for your anniversary was so sweet! I wish I would catch the crafty bug. I have lots of ideas but just can't put them to work! One day....

Veggie Mom said...

Wow...You're one talented gal! Hey, thanks for helping me celebrate my SITS Featured Blogger Day in the Sun! Hope you come back soon to visit me...we always have a lot going on at my place!

Melody said...

I love it! Even the colors look warm!

Good luck with your curtains. I can't wait to see them, so I hope you'll post a pic when you're finished.

beautiful shawl... I'm afraid my talents with yarn begin and end at tying it into a circle to play Cat's Cradle with my little girls :)

Thanks for stopping by and commenting at my blog last week - I am officially now the slowest person to return the commenting favors :)

Rhea said...

What a gorgeous, totally warm looking shawl! I want to cuddle up with it on the couch right now with a good book and some hot tea. You're awesome!!

Becky Welch said...

You are so talented and what beautiful ladies you have as daughters! Thanks for stopping by on the BATW tour. I have seen you before (I usually follow you on morning posts!!) and glad I finally stopped by your place. We go through Little Rock (and the rest of Arkansas) when we go to Texas to see my husband's family. Come back again!

dddiva said...

What a beautiful shawl, you are very talented. Did you make the pattern yourself?

Heather said...

I LOVE your shawl. You did such a good job!

April said...

Great shawl - you have a beautiful family! Thanks for visiting my cyber home :-)

heathersister said...

Dang, battle of the bloggers, who are those strange women named Becky and Heather?

1bitrcountrygirl said...

Hey I love the shawl! Can I make a request for one when you have the time? Winters are cold here in WI! I answered your question in the comment you left on my blog.

Wha?? 1 1/2 months? No. Way. I guess we'll see! You should've been at the concert--classic New Kids on the Block with some of their new stuff mixed in.

Love the wrap!! And totally love the skirt you sewed too! I HATE ripping out seams. Or zippers. Like to sew though--just haven't gotten much opportunity. I have a half finished pillow cover at the moment...I started it back in August. I should take my machine out and finish it! Thanks for the inspiration!
