|Here's a snap of the sewing area mid afternoon!|
To start the day, I headed to one of the two fabric shops in a nearby town (this was after I painted the front door...chores/DIY had to figure in there somewhere...right?). I even had some vouchers to spend in the shop, extra squeal! Here you can see some of my purchases...oh and I may have also treated myself to tea and cake. Well technically I was on holiday right?
|Finally got a nice quilters square - hooray for right angles!|
|Maybe a monster with a secret?|
|I love these little hands!|
I also finished one of my monsters. 'Big Hearted Bertha' is now stitched, partially stuffed and almost complete. I also found a simple patchwork thin blanket that I'd been making years ago, quickly added some stitching across the squares and this is ready for my daughter to play with tomorrow. Now just to finish those partially complete projects and I think my day of sewing was quite successful!
|Here's Bertha in her almost complete state!|
Next weeks plans: Finish 'Aquatic apprentice' and set up some sashiko hand embroidery for the train (I have some lovely plain linen placemats I'd love to embellish)
