We will finally know tomorrow if we have the house we've applied to rent. Today the estate agents did all the reference checking, and tonight the owner of the house is left to make the final decision. We'll keep you posted!
Today it was lovely and cool (unusual in this tropical winter) with a smattering of rain. Perfect for more sewing adventures!
We've been working with fabric leftovers mostly, clearing all those strips and squares that tend to pile up after numerous projects. I also dug out a lot of stitcheries that I have done over the last two years to see if we could make them into projects for the new home and for gifts at Christmas. I have about 30 of them so we will be busy for a while!
Today Blossom made a new wrap for our smaller French Press...
...and then she made this really pretty pin cushion using an embroidery from my stash.
I got to play with my turning tool for the first time...
...when I made the handles for this lavender filled door hanger (I used another stitchery from my stash, this one is from Cheryl's BOM last year)...
I gave the hanger a frilled skirt using scraps of Aviary. So cute - I think I'll hang it on our bedroom door once we've resettled.
A couple of years ago Blossom learnt to crochet and she made about twelve of these tiny 1 inch cotton crocheted granny squares. Today I used one on a small lavender filled coathanger sachet for the wardrobe. I intend to make more for gifts...
I also finished Natalie Lymer's 'Sweet & Spotty' Needle Wallet, but I changed the pattern a bit, and used the extra stitchery for a scissor-keep instead.
My box of birthday and Christmas gifts is beginning to fill! \o/
It's lovey tonight with rain trickling in the background and the air is a wee bit cooler. The boys are watching football so us girls will keep on stitching. Only 28 more stitcheries to find homes for. Seems quite appropriate don't you think?
