My sewing has been a bit sporadic over the last fortnight, life has been too much work and not enough play... Sadly our sewing bee weekend had to be delayed, as dear Jen tripped and landed in hospital, causing much concern! Thankfully she is back home now, and we are all so hoping she gets well soon.
I've been on a roll with zippered bags! They are quite therapeutic to make, and useful for presents. Sometimes it's nice to start and finish a project on the same day, too.
I've just completed hand-stitching the binding on this Liberty and linen quilt. This was one of those projects without a definite purpose, I just fancied using up these fabrics, which were leftovers from previous quilts, and wanted to experiment with the linen combination. It's large enough for a pram, or even a small cot, but more likely to end up as a throw over a chair.
Love the backing! This grey spot fabric is really a favourite of mine. While we were outside, I tried to take advantage of the daylight to get better pictures of Posy and also my progress with the triangles...
Couldn't do much about the wind though!
Rosie, meanwhile, was looking over my shoulder as I browsed blogs, and caught me checking out the publicity for the Far Far Away release... In the blink of an eye, she went seamlessly from saying, 'No, mummy, not more fabric!' to, 'Oh, I love those unicorns... let's get them in purple!' I rest my case.
