Still, good weather for doing things in one's sewing room.
I have just one more seam to sew on my Courthouse Stars quilt top. Which I am going to do tomorrow.
|Best thing is that I will add some lovely scraps to my pile of scraps for both|
the My Tweets and Bluebird & Berry BOM's :-)
|You know, this carpet is excellent for hiding vomit stains... you don't want to know!|
This is the beginnings of a quilt from the book "Modern Mix" by Jessica Levitt which when I saw it, though "yes, I have fabrics I want to do this with".
These are the grouping that I've been rabbiting on about.
|This is a range called "fleur nouveau" from Clothworks.|
|Templates all ready to go... I'm going to do invisible machine applique using|
freezerpaper templates and a gluestick... works well.
Yesterday I downloaded a pattern for a ironing board caddy with thread catcher and removeable pin cushion from sew4home.com. They have some really interesting projects, and I'll have to spend a few more hours browsing when I get a chance. Now, I don't really need an ironing board caddy - although the idea is very good - but I use a teeny tiny board that doesn't really have enough room for such a thing - but tucking it under my sewing machine where it is easily accessable from my iron and perfect to hold my quick unpick and thread snips.
I didn't make the thread catcher, but I did understand most of the instructions!
As far as reviewing the tutorial, I was most impressed that it had downloadable instructions, although there were 23 pages! Lots (and lots) of pictures - so I'm not really complaining, and I printed it out with multiple pages per sheet, so only used 6 pages in the end.
