Productivity and a yummy package.

As I hoped, I spent practically the whole day up in my sewing room yesterday. I got a little more tidying up done then got stuck into some more of mums projects. First up I quilted this little cushion sized panel. Then made it into a simple envelope style cover. There is just a tiny bit of hand stitching left to do.
Next up I made two Cheetah panels into a bolster cover.
I didn't quilt them, just left them flat. I also had to make a pad to go inside it. This too just requires a few hand sewn stitches.
Hopefully I'll have time to get another of the larger projects completed before Mums birthday on 1st of Feb.

When I got home from work today a Fat Quarter Shop sized parcel was sat upon my stair waiting for me. Look!! I was so excited. A whole fat quarter bundle of Buttercup, by Fig Tree Quilts, well who else would it be? You know I'm a sucker for that stuff.
There will be a new collection available soon too. Strawberry Fields.
I'm off to play with and stroke my new fabrics for a while.

Don't forget to look here, you might be able to help me name my latest quilt. Something else I did yesterday was to make a start on a little something to says thanks for helping out with that.

Your mum is one lucky lady! She'll have quite a suite of bedding to enjoy. Glad you got to spend lots of time playing with fabric. And a package too--what a treat!

Glad to see those elephants and other assorted African wildlife being used at last!

Lucky Mum to have more African soft furnishings for her birthday. Finished in plenty of time. I love your new fabrics. The colours are gorgeous. You'll be able to make something wonderful with them.
