feeling hot, hot, hot...
Today the temp has reached 35 degrees, at least. I vowed that i wouldn't be poking my head outdoors today, so what on earth could I do...
This week I quilted my Stitching round the block square and hoped that inspiration would strike while I was doing it to help me decide what to make with it. Well it seems that it was destined to become a cushion cover.
I used the blue fabric that journeyed back home with the top as the back and some lovely tone on tone pink fabric for the binding. I am very happy with the result and it will now sit on my bed.
I am just so happy with this top. It was a lovely project that was a pleasure to work on, as well as working on the other girlies' ones.
I have written Lorraine, Fiona and Carol's names on the back in the order that they contributed to my block.
I have been having a great time sticky beaking other participants in Narelle's 1 xmas item per month and it is very inspiring and encouraging! I have had some fun surfing the net looking for more Christmas patterns to earmark for projects.On Friday I popped into Jemima's to buy some more fabrics to use as borders around my Park Avenue hexie flowers. While there I also bought some Christmas fabrics to rebuild my stash so I will have fabric on hand to make my gifts. My mind is a whirlwind of ideas!
I also have some stitcheries done, just need to snap a pic - will try to during the week. It is back to normal work this week so hopefully I will still have lots of crafting time.
Hope your weekend has been a good one..
forgot to show a pic of my finished 'life is beautiful' table runner for my swap friend Els..
