I was able to get a bit of a 'go-on' this week and managed to get a quilt finished and two other small projects. Tomorrow I'm off to the Post Office to post them to two magazine editors.
This one is a Christmas in July project.
A sneak peak at a cushion
Our Church is having a market/fete next month. I only just found out about it, seeing we are only new at the church, so I don't have much time to get a few bits and pieces made to donate. So, it was out with the PASSES box. PASSES are my "projects at a stand-still". Sure enough, there were a few stitcheries, projects half started, (or should that be 'half finished'?), and things that had been sitting around for a long time. It is an ideal opportunity to salve my conscience and get a few of them completed, so that's the plan for this week.
I had a look in my "completed" box and found a couple of things that should be suitable:
A little pincushion - click on the photo to see the sweet little daisies around the edge.
A face washer embroidered with roses.
I thought I would make some more cupcake pincushions as people seem to like them. I cut out quite a few but have only completed one. They take nearly 3 hours to make so are definitely not quick and easy! This is the one I have finished:
I'd better go and get some more stitching done!
