A productive Day off

I had a day off work yesterday, so as well as hopping about with the Wii, I got stuck in and got some sewing done. If you remember I had this piece prepped and ready to go. All the applique pieces were cut and the flower was fused into place.
Everything else was done yesterday. I used my machine to applique the pieces into place, I just did a couple of rounds of straight stitch on all the pieces and I'm happy with that, it looks fine to me. I did however get the Chook back to front! and I forgot to stitch her legs. I'll do that this evening. The batting is made up from a couple of scraps which I sewed together. I did hope to hang it in my kitchen, but it's larger than I anticipated, or the space is smaller than I thought, either way it won't go where I planned, so I'm working on that one.
I've mailed my share of the Potholder Pass and as I mentioned before, I've been making more.
These ones I've kept for myself.
The square ones are all crammed into a dark envelope and making their way to their new home.
I tucked a little extra in there too.
Just a little matching something.
Well that's me, I'm off to work. It's office day today, maybe I'll have time to get up to Joans craft shop and see if she has any goodies. Hopefully my next day off will be productive too.
Take care

Well done with all of those and with the NZ hanging ( or is it quilt size ? )
It's great that some days turn out to be so much more productive than others.

These are absolutely gorgeous. I have yet to start mine. I had to buy some fabric for it and it has not yet come.

Cute potholders. Love how you used the moda ribbon for the loop.

Your kitchen should look nice a cheerful with all these new additions. That should chase away any winter blues.

Love these pot holders, LouLee! I'm tempted to have a go at them, as they look easy and quick.
