Flaunt for this Week

This weeks flaunt is a continental  pillow cover I made for Timmi's chair.  I used some of the left over fabric from her horse quilt so her bedroom is co-ordinated.  Have enough fabric left to make a bag as well, another thing on the to do list.
Quickly cut. stitched, ironed, measured and placed it in her chair 5 seconds before she came home Thursday. I have nearly finished one of the challenges I am doing only have to do about 20 cms of hand stitching and that is one done and one to go, actually 2 to go have to have hexagon bag finished by Feb 16th as well.

This Week

I have been busy sewing on a challenge today that has to be finished by Feb 1st.  Only the binding to do and the label and its all done.  At our Christmas break up for NQR group Helen bought along what she called ugly fabric, gave everyone a fat quarter to do something with.  I have done something which I like and have added touches with the Derwent pencils I got for Christmas.  Photos will be posted on the Friday after the 1st.

A Quilting flaunt this time

This week I finished a block roll I started last year.  There is an embroidered panel on it which I started around September 09 for a take along project.  The pattern was in a quilting magazine and is by Linda Haigh.

The next photo is a close up of the embroidery and buttons used for flowers.

I used flannel on the inside of the block roll so the pieces will stick better.  Now to go and trace of something else as take along hand work.

Saturday Flaunt not Friday

I made a lovely little bag with matching purse for granddaughter Sara. It is purple and Lime green with purple butterflies.  I can't find the photo anywhere I definitely took a photo but it has disappeared into cyber world.
We went to the beach yesterday to visit the family, they have our caravan at Somers Caravan Park. We had a lovely day and I enjoyed playing in the pool with the granddaughters, later in the day the other Melbourne family arrived and while they unpacked I got to watch grandson who is trying to crawl already, not 6 months old until next weekend, but as mum says he was born trying to move around.

New Year Flaunt

This is a bag I made as a last minute present for an unexpected someone who gave me a lovely gift.  It was a lovely surprise to receive a present from this lady and as pink is her favorite colour I ran up a bag for her.
I have put pockets inside for her diary, mobile phone, pen keys.  The bag pattern by Fay Kitto was in DUQ no 134 I have changed it slightly.
