It started with a tidy up of "my space" and some much needed sorting of projects. I have a wedding coming up and family visitors from O/S during March and April... so I MUST be organised with my sewing and swap commitments. I just would NEVER let someone down... so now my cubbyhole is...
I made a "Blanket of Love" entirely from stash fabric, pre cuts ( left over from a previous project) and small bits that I keep for just this occasion. Doesn't it feel good to use up fabric. I even joined the pellon batting and I had bought the backing "on sale" for $8.00 p/m a little while ago. SO how GOOD is that !
Simple quilting with a built in stitch on my machine... and "viola'"...
And a close up of the "elephants" on the front.Valentine's Day 12inch Mini in my entry all ready for February 14th. I am really over the moon with the colours even though this pic doesn't do it justice. It really is a pretty fabric from the Silhouttes range by Ro Gregg. I have found sooo many uses for this fabric and will look for more to keep handy. I'll hang my initial heart from the frame too once it arrives from ???
??? aarrhhh... you thought I was going to tell you, didn't you?!? No it's off to my SECRET partner in my Once A Season Swap- Autumn theme. I hope ??? enjoys my gifts and can use what's included inside this package.
A CUBE. For no other reason than I wanted to make one. I didn't have a pattern or instructions so I crossed my fingers and away I went. I gotta tell you it's very hard sewing with crossed fingers too. I had the shop cut some foam pieces to various sizes, I measured one and then cut the appropriate size squares (4in) in pretty "baby" fabrics. This CUBE has alphabet letters on it and as it turned out sooo good, I'll make another one with numbers... then perhaps some animals. The possibilities are endless. This project was a lot of FUN as I had to test myself to see if I could do it. AND I did.. so I'm laughing!
All very neat and tidy... playable and washable!
I hope you ALL had a wonderful, creative weekend and accomplished whatever it was you set out to do.
