I got Charmaine's placemats completed in time for the family visit on Saturday. She had selected a lot of scraps and as I sorted through them I came up with a plan.
It really didn't take me long to put them together and add the chocolate brown border. I used off cuts of polyester batting and some black homespun off cuts to layer them.
I kept the quilting very easy using my stitch in the ditch foot.
Charmaine was very happy with them and delighted when I said she should take two of them home.
With those complete I've pulled Jude's ready set sew kit back out of it's box and made a little more progress there.
I'm also making progress on my latest crochet project.
It is very cosy to sit under this while I work in the evenings.
I promised a picture of the yarn cakes I'm using, I like that they are variegated and I don't need to do any counting or thinking about when to change colour.
My cross stitch dinosaur has grown a little, I worked on it on Saturday during a zoom session with Chooky and the ladies. I'll get an updated pic soon.
And finally for today I'm very proud to say that I entered a jar of my relish in to a competition over the weekend and won a prize.
I always knew that my Possums pickle was a great recipe.
That's my news. I hope you had a great weekend.
