Look at that - a blue sky and no rain - we've had a couple of days like that this week, it makes me feel so much better :)
Well, given these Crafty updates are all I'm posting at the moment I'm ridiculously late with last week's but I have an excuse - it was P's birthday, My Boy was home from Uni with his Girlfriend for a visit and My Girl moved out into a flat for the first time. Frankly, it's been manic and, despite having a few days off I am totally knackered!
I didn't manage much of a crafty nature but everything counts right?
|No not this, this is donkey's years old|
My Girl and her Flatmate need a draught excluder for their front door - yes, I appreciate this is a doorstop but I had found the pattern I'd previously used for this so I just made it longer ...
Done - and using a curtain remnant I bought only a few weeks ago and the remains of a bag of toy stuffing I've had knocking about for years - I'm calling this £2.00 - bargain!
|Some fat eighths - they always come in useful - I |
|Both of these fabrics were 50% off in the sale - I have a plan.|
Oh, more dots, fancy that.
|And these ... with dots, again.|
|I had the print at the front already - my brother gave me an early Christmas voucher for Britex|
when we were in San Francisco at the end of last year.
It was always destined to be napkins for our dining table - I just needed the right backing fabric -
who knew it would have polka dots?
|And this is the table runner I started last April - |
I realised the 'perfect' backing fabric wasn't out there and I actually want to
get it finished and use it so I bought the solid and I'm looking forward to getting it done.
Oh no dots, shame :)
|I know I haven't finished my quilt but this layer cake was|
seriously discounted in the sale and I have a pattern I want to make already planned and in my
'to do' queue.
I absolutely will not start it until my other quilt is finished :)
|No I don't need any more wool but it was ridiculously cheap and |
it matches the sofa in our Board Room, in fact you can hardly see it,
I'm inadvertently camouflaging the stuff I bring into the house!
