As I mentioned yesterday, I might have been AWOL, but I have been sewing, so today I thought I would share some brag photos of some of the things I've sewn.
Aussie Hero Quilt recipients from BOM's sent from all over Australia, however the top one was some orphan blocks that were sent to me to use for the Aussie Hero quilts....sorry I can't remember who sent them, so thank you Ms Anonymous!
Last month it was Terri's birthday and as she and I have had a bit of a cup cake thing happening....I made her some cupcakes....the food colouring was rose pink, and I wanted darkish pink, so I added a fair bit of colouring to the frosting.....ooops, my bad, they were a nice shade of fluro pink in the end...hee hee hee, but thankfully she didn't mind!
I also made her a sign for her craft room door....I got the idea online, and when I find the tutorial again, I'll share the link with you all. Basically you paint onto the photo frame glass, in reverse, then you put fabric behind it....and as she's now an owl lover like me I did an owl theme for her sign....can't think who would've encouraged that can you? *looking innocently around my shoulders*
Next I made myself a mega card holder wallet from this tutorial. I nearly have it filled up already, and have been using it to death....might make a couple of these for Christmas pressies.
For ages I've been wanting to make a jigsaw quilt, and whilst I was MIA, that day came....ok so it's still just a flimsy, but only until I find the right backing fabric for it...then it'll be quilted....by me! Yep, I'm getting the hang of this quilting lark lol (Necessity or rather poverty is a great motivator!)
Till next time, keep smilin' and stitchin'
