If you have been visiting for a while, you might remember that I teased you with some secret holiday crafting work-in-progress photos way back in December 2008. I couldn't share more than some close ups at that point and now I can finally share the details with you.
The project I teased you with is now part of the book Craft Challenge: Dozens of Ways to Repurpose a Tea Towel published by Lark Books.
It is funny to think that my original idea submission was over a year and a half ago and the instructions were complete a year ago. I am so glad to the book is finally out and I can share with you. Two of the almost thirty projects in the book are mine: a hanging towel for the kitchen that was inspired by my Gram's crochet topped towel and a hanging clothespin holder.
If you get a chance to take a look at the book, you wont be let down - you will find patterns from some of your favorite crafters including one of my faves, African Kelli. Plus, the project instruction drawings are really quite nice - I love how the illustrations reflect the pattern of the fabrics the projects were made in.
If you happen to make any of the projects from the book, let me know. I would love to see pictures :)
