Princess Sophie is lazing...
...I cannot imagine me sleeping like that. ;-)
I spent an hour on Friday making up Kathryn's Tutu Lavender Sachet pattern...
Very simple to make, but SO sweet! I have had this for months but just haven't had the time to make it. Now that New Beginnings has drawn to a close I am able to get back to stitching other people's designs.
(By the way, have a look at our Gum Trees blog for Joy's photo of the last of the sewing caddies and kits ready to be handed over to QLD Quilters! It looks like we've been able to collect around 800 kits!! Thank you to everyone who contributed!)
Last night I finally finished the stitching on Kaaren's Huswif. This was one of Kaaren's First Friday freebies last year and though it is not my usual style, I loved it. I have spent the last two weeks stitching it, grabbing 10 minutes here and there. Slow and steady brings about a result, so I'll continue with that mindset in future when I am in busy-mode.
The thread is a variegated grey. I felt black was too harsh as this is the fabric I intend using for the cover.
Another project I played around with on Friday night were these little fabric gift bags from Lisa's tutorial. It was late at the time and I made a mistake on the square measurement so they are a bit smaller than the original pattern. I'll get it right next time, but they are still really cute.
I have really enjoyed stitching the designs of others!
Today we're off for our ride. Will have to put the stitching aside for a few hours...
Have a lovely weekend!
