What more can you ask for?
I have had progress on some forgotten projects and that always is a good way to end the holidays.
There has also been a start on a new project, of course!
First the finishes...
these stitcheries have been waiting for a while to be done... now to make them into something.
The designs are from Urban Threads..
The fabric was a gorgeous charm pack sent to me by Susan (of thimblestitch) quite a while ago.
this treasure has been sitting waiting for some leaves to be sewn down on the border and the corner flowers.
Most of them are done then it can go off to be quilted and join it's partner on the wall.
I really wanted to have the clamshells made into 'something' before I returned to work so I got my thinking cap on and there were a few options but i went with a large purse. The frames were on hand but I couldn't find the pattern to make the purse so had to add lib a little. It isn't perfect but that's ok...
I ended up putting the frame back to front as I wanted the clasp to be on the other side but giving it a second glance in the photo it doesn't work too badly.
Very satisfying to have cleared some ufo items.
Happy Australia day tomorrow....
