LoLLie JaR

I was given quite a few glass coffee jars that were too good to waste... so...
I decided to use them as LoLLie JaRs.
I made...  1 x Christmas Lollies... & 1 x MuM's Candy... covers to pretty the jars up a little...
And I will make more from now until December.


I have a few different "sayings" to go on the other covers too.
The covers & filled jars... will make great gifts... or sale items at the Guild Xmas Sale.
If you would like to make one or two... the FREE instructions are available HeRe... or HeRe.



I've added these items to Narelle's 1XiAM too...

BLooM #14 & #15

For this party I've completed 2 blocks... but on #14 I changed the leaves to work in with my layout.
I'm really HaPPy with how this quilt is coming together too.
Row 3 (with 5 blocks layout) has now been put together also.


Did you manage to complete another one of your BLooMs... ?
If you would like to link up below... I'll come over to see your garden...

MaKinG PRoGreSS

I've had some applique LeTTeRs ready for some time... but thought NoW was the time to actually FiNiSH them... so this is what I'll be working on today... & planned to continue working on at FNSI... but Wendy has postponed FNSI to next Friday, May 24th.
I guess I'll just have to play upstairs in the cubbyhole all by myself tonight... wink wink.

The letters measure 8 x 10 inch & are added to 10 x 12 inch canvas frames once completely stitched.
So far...  I have the letter A stapled to canvas...while the R is ready to go on & all the other letters are on the table waiting for the double frame to be stitched... with one still to be appliqued.

Wish me luck... as I need the room in my cubbyhole.


See you all next week... at the rescheduled FNSI...
Hope you feel well quickly Wendy.

FuN PRoJecT

DD#1 asked me to make a few HaIR scrunchies for 6 y/o GD#1 in her school colours.
I actually finished up making 8 in total... & GD#1 is VeRY HaPPy with them too.


These are the ReViSeD measurements:
Length 30 inch x Width 4 inch... with 8 inch length of elastic.
Fold over 1 short edge a 1/4 inch- wrong sides together- finger press... then stitch edge.
Fold fabric in half with right sides together & with long sides together.
Sew along this long length using a 1/4 inch seam... this forms a tube.
Turn right side out.
Thread elastic thru tube. Sew elastic ends together.
Push tube end inside turned edge and pin to hold.
Sew across turned edge... over elastic & with open end inside... to close scrunchie.
EnJoY the smiles you'll receive when you give these as a small gift...
