FriDaY FiNisHeS

For anyone living on the east coast of Australia you know what I mean when I say .."what a weather week we've just had" ! Sun, wind, rain, cold, sun again... well after all it is WiNTeR... but all in a matter of 5 days!
WOW!
BUT on the good side of bad weather... one can get a lot of sewing done... 
yippee!
Every where I look crafters are working with felt... so I gave it a go too.

Inspiration from Bare Roots candle mats.



Lovely bright tree ornies with gold sparkles...
cute gingerbread men...
and of course trees...
all on a starry night!










Next finish was my car quillow. I started it at the Central Coast Modern Quilters Guild meeting and it's made in grey, black and red flannel, with a cotton backing for strength. I thought that way it can lay on the ground when needed.
This FiNisH is also my June 
MonTHLy MaKe.


Another project was a machine cover to protect my overlocker.
It has always just been covered with a plastic one, nothing too crafty about it, eh?
in fact it's ... B-O-R-I-N-G !!!

But it looks so much better now, don't you think?

And... it almost matches my "ApRoN" which Sharon made me in the recent "AlphaBet ChaLLenge" doesn't it?

I'm VeRy HaPPy with it because I had to make a pattern to fit the unusual shape of the machine.!
I did get inspiration from Thimble Blossoms "Just Swell" by Camille Roskelley for the piecing of the bottom panel.
