I've had a busy few days again.
I've spent a couple of evenings under he kiwi quilt. There are a lot of threads to tidy away, I'm not even half way done with that yet. I'll keep at it though, it's a nice job in the evenings while the television is on.
On Wednesday I fished out a couple of charm packs I've had for some time and made another start.
The fabric collection is called Aspen frost, by Moda.
I really can't remember what I was going to do with them, or even if there was ever a plan, but I settled on making another table cloth. I figured the best way to get things just how I want them, is to work on the table, so I did.
After settling on a layout, I got sewing.
Added some borders and
One very Christmassy table cover all done and waiting to be quilted.
Phew! I don't know what has gotten into me, but I seem to be on a roll here. I'm loving it.
On Friday after work, the girls and I headed South, to The Quilting Shed. We're getting to be regulars there! It is a beautiful shop. So bright, colourful and inspirational. I was very well behaved and only bought a few items. I think Claire and Debbie blew their pocket money budget for the next few paydays!! Both buying more than one kit.
Anyway, here's my wee haul.
A book, with some lovely giftable projecs and useful little makes.
A kit to make a cute wee bag, in Kaffe fabrics.....(Hopefully he will soon find another company to produce his fabrics and this little wobble will be over.)
I also found some fabric to match yet more charm squares that I purchased since immigrating. So not that long ago really. LOL
I also selected quilting threads for two recent finishes.
Now I just need to sort out backing fabrics.
I enjoyed my afternoon out with the girls, it was fun.
Saturday was a busy day, with house and garden stuff, but today, was fun time again.
After I have prepped some veggies for the freezer, and got some more into brine for pickling tomorrow, I was able to potter in my room. I had a tidy up as it had gotten a little messy, then, before I knew what was happening, I had made up my bag kit!
Then I started to play about with my Pocketful of daisies charms.
As I said previously, I've had the charms for 2 - 3 years, and four fat quarters of coordinating fabrics.
On Friday I topped it up with another metre of coordinating fabric. The grey piece at the top of the image..
And guess what happened when I pulled them out for a photo shoot. I found myself sorting lights and dark, and topped up the numbers by cutting some extras from the fat quarters
And in almost no time, I had some quick four patch blocks made.
The other pieces will become coin stacks.
Fun to be had tomorrow, after I finish the preserves!
Claire went to a house clearance on Thursday and bought a huge amount of fabrics and some other crafty supplies. She knows I'm collecting some lovely rose fabrics and gifted this bundle to me.
I have half a plan for them.
I think it might be wine o'clock.
I'll treat myself to a glass, while I bury some thread in the kiwi quilt.
I do hope your week was as good as mine.
