I decided that I should update with 2 posts instead of 1, that way the pics will load quicker if I do one now, and one in the morning. So a sewing post first then. I’ve been doing a fair bit of sewing in that past week or so. I finished the cot quilt I was making. I’m really pleased with this one. I love the subtle colours.
I di make it a bit bigger than I had planned, as often happens when working without a pattern, however it will shrink a bit when it’s been washed.
I made Cam some PJ’s. I’ve had the flannel here for ages, so decided it would make nice pants. Cam is a funny size at the moment, size 2′s are too small, but size 3′s are always too big in the waist, so it was easier to make them than buy them. I did buy the top (on sale) and just added the applique, because I didn’t have any fabric suitable. I made 3 pairs of pants, but could only get one top, so I’m going to hunt in my re-purpose clothing pile and see if I can find any t-shirt still in good condition so I can make him another 2 tops.
I’m making a couple of quilts with Heather Ross prints, one on commission and one with what’s left in my stash. I managed to make a cot size quilt out of the offcuts. It’s a bit more subtle colourwise than I’m used too, but quite good colours for a baby quilt.. I got the top done on Sunday…
I got the quilting finished today…
I decided it needed a wee bit of Jazz, to liven it up a bit. Check out the back …………… Yes it is that blinding in real life.
Now I just need to decide on a binding colour
I have 3 quilts on the go this week. So the sewing machine will be working hard.
Cam got hold of my small thread scissors the other day. Instead of snatching them away I let him have a play with them, I guess he will only cut himself once. I’m going to call him Mr Confetti, he spent about half an hour cutting up my scraps into very tiny pieces, all without incident. Doesn’t he look pleased with himself?
I’ll be back tomorrow with a garden / spring update.
