I didn't think I had much to share but when I looked through my camera I found a few bits and pieces ....and here they are....
Firstly, I've completed block 3 of Lynette Anderson's 2013 button mystery, Chateau Hexagon. It's another cute block. I am pleased with myself for keeping up with this project!!!
(The block reminds me that I really should get out and start tidying my garden too, it's been so warm lately that the weeds are really having a good growth spurt!)
And secondly, a woohoo!, as it's not even the 25th of the month and here I am with my completed item for Narelle's One Christmas Item a Month.
|"The Last Decoration" pattern by Fig n Berry Creations.|
The pattern comes as a stitchery to do with as you please.
I've made mine into a cushion (9" square).
|Isn't he a sweetie?|
Stitched with Cottage Garden Threads. I love these threads!!
|I got a bit carried away with the back. It suited the size of the fabric |
pieces I had left over.
Didn't really need the zip but I felt like it. I think the zip originally came
from an old pair of work trousers (Dad's, maybe?)
I have also made this (below) recently; we are doing a sewing item Project of the Month at my favourite quilt shop, The Country Yard and I've been making the samples. The August project was a needle roll.
Today is tidy-up day in my 'palace' (as the MOML calls it!). I seem to have leftovers everywhere. Wish me luck, I get easily distracted :-)
Thank you for visiting, happy stitching and have a lovely day,
