Here is my new Fellowship of Flowers Table Topper, a bit farther along................
I have finished 5 of the 7 bees. Should be done with the other two today.
I hoped I would be finished with the whole project this week but not to be. I am currently having a bit of a dilemma in reference to finishing off the project. I have been trying to use only items I have in my "stash." But this time I need some beads and trims that I don't have. (I have plenty of beads, just not the colors I want to use. Same for the trim!)
Because I live a bit of a drive from craft stores and fabric stores, I can't just run out and get something when I need it. We do have a Wal-Mart but it is getting more and more limited in what they carry.
Sometimes, when I can get to a flea market I can find something I can use. But at the moment with winter still hanging on we don't do much of that and certainly not the ones that might have the items I want to buy.
So I am still working on the fellowship of flowers project but lacking a few things I need to finish it. I hope to get to Joann's or some other similar shop soon. I have tried finding things I want on line but so far NOTHING I am willing to buy since I want to be able to SEE the item, not just guess that the colors are right.
I will not let myself drive almost an hour each way for one or two small items. I generally check out those stores when we are doing something else as well. So once I get this project as far along as I can I will put it aside and work on something else.
Do any of you other folks out there have a problem like this? How do you handle it?
I just keep making a list and hope to fulfill that list when I get to a proper store.
Meanwhile I have dug out a few quilting UFOS I have the "stuff" to complete. So far I have finished one little mat.
And on another project I have finished the machine applique and just need to finish the machine quilting. It is moving along quite well... just need to find the time. I will show that when it is farther along. Should be next week.
So that is it for now. I will be back on Tuesday with Tea Cup Tuesday and Thurs. or Friday with my crafting and other projects.
