I was hoping I’d have something cute to show today but last night, while a happy tv night (that’s what the title is all about), was a craftASTER! I very calmly and amazingly without much swearing managed to sew the bag part of a basket bag into a big chinese finger trap, then after an attack with the seam ripper I sewed it to one basket once – that looks wrong, twice – this basket sucks, and then to another basket once – what the shit?! Finally I gave up and went to bed. I need some better baskets and I’m out of ideas of where to find them.
So instead of a finished project, here’s something from my I-want-to-try-that list – Pojagi!
I’d seen a few of these beautiful transparent patchwork curtains before not knowing what they were and then Jen in Tokyo filled me in. They’re pojagi which is Korean patchwork. Evidentally all things Korean are the rage in Japan. Jen described pojagi as – "it’s almost like English paper piecing without the paper, as straight
edges are whipstitched together, right sides facing." Cool! I’m not sure I need another hand sewing quilting project but I don’t know if I can resist. It’s so colorful and modern. And I love the stained glass effect of it.
Ok, I have to stop looking or I’ll totally bag all my other projects and go pojagi crazy!
