......for I have sinned, it's been 6 days since I last posted....and with no further religious references, because I don't want to offend anyones' beliefs, I'll get into my latest post.
Here's a sneaky peek at the cushion cover I made for a swap in the Craft Forum (link in my sidebar). Opening day is tomorrow, and I'll post again then to show you not only the full cover that I made, but also the one I received from my partner.
Polly, but the rest has been re folded and stacked neatly back in the bucket and will be getting used as I begin to practice quilting...yes, I still haven't mastered the art of FMQ on a domestic machine.....boo hoo hoo.
I have also started a new page (up there at the top of my blog) for videos I like, and no, the closest you'll get to porn is fabric/quilting porn! The first video I've embedded there is a great FMQ stencil video tutorial by Don Link. Do watch it if you've been searching for an alternative to plastic stencils and/or press and seal.
I had a friend visit for the weekend, and whilst I didn't get much done in the way of sewing, I did get a frilly scarf knitted for a client/friend who saw me showing the yarn on Facebook and put an order in for one. They are sooooo quick and easy to knit, and once I had the right needles, had it finished in no time. I started out with a circular needle, but got fed up of wrestling with the long loopy bit, then I swapped to straight needles but as they were long, I kept getting them hooked up in the knitted dangling end of the scarf, and it was driving me nuts, yeah yeah, I know, not a very long journey! Here's a pic of Colleen B's scarf.
