|Oh, $carlett, how I will miss you.|
I'm a machine-only kind of girl and have been since I took my first FMQ class. Yes, I even do my binding by machine. Some people find it absolutely anathema, but I want to be done with a quilt and get on to the next one, and the machine is infinitely quicker than my hands.
So, I'm going to say something I never say; I need hand work!
There's a hexie pillow I've been sewing off and on (mostly off) for a year, now, but I'm afraid it won't last the entire two weeks.
|Okay, looking at this pic, Imay be at the 2 year mark...|
I've done cross stitch forever, but don't have anything that inspires me right now.
My friend Hollie is doing a really great double wedding ring by hand, but I don't want to go quite that big.
|Aren't her fabric choices gorgeous???|

So, any suggestions? Do you have a favorite hand project? Please, send me ALL your suggestions and feel free to send me links or pictures of your own - ipleadquilty (at) gmail (dot) com.
I'll go mad if I don't have some fabric or thread in my hands... (I've tried knitting once, but I wasn't very good at it and STILL don't know how to purl.)
Help me, bloggy, quilty friends, you're my only hope!
