Ever buy patterns and then they disappear into a stash of patterns never to be seen again?
I have been doing a little too much buying lately and not enough of the making but these holidays have seen me make some progress in this regard.
I can tick off some items from the Anni downs books I bought- two zippered purses made, one pincushion ready to go. I bought this pincushion design at our bloggy meet at Tranquility vowing it would get done and ta, da!
I have made two. One for me and another for the giftie box. The one for myself was a bit of a trial and the second one came a little neater, sort of like the purses. I even got to use up my packets of crushed walnut shells I had stashed away.
the colours are a little brighter than these photos but for some reason they are a little dull.
the other night I also made a start on preparations for my water lily needlecase. Lots of little circles cut for the petals and the stitchery traced!
Bought the wadding and backing for the Dr Seuss baby quilts-now need to get going on the basting and quilting so there may not be much show and tell for a little bit, definitely won't be as productive as I have been in the past week. lol
It has been fun to work on some little projects and I have added to my gift box!
hope you have had a productive weekend too.
