But I did get a little bit of sewing done. First up, I am in the middle of making another Circles mug rug. I love working on this on the sofa in the evenings. This is for one of my very best buddies, who when she saw the original I made for Felicity last year, asked me to make one for her at some stage. Last week, I was too tired from work to do any major evening sewing at my machine, so I quickly appliqued on my feature fabrics, and then I worked away on it here and there while watching tv. It's almost done now and I am loving the pink and dark, almost purplish tones on the Ash grey.
I also made a start on the long awaited quilt for my little boy D. He has changed his mind about a billion times about what he wanted. But when I saw this quilt in the Block Party book, and showed it to him, he was sold.
I have cut my blocks smaller than that pattern, as its to be a lap quilt, and have made 2 blocks up to try them out...here they are. No surprises that my little man is a train fanatic!
Aren't they fresh and gorgeous? He thinks they are cool, and to be honest, so do I. I am going to sash them in Kona Coal..I think...although I might use a bright aqua or blue instead. I will decide when I get a few more done.
Lastly, I made up some little coin purses for little girls to sell. These are about 5 x 4, and are perfect for little ladies to keep their coins in, or even their little treasures...my little lady uses hers to cart her Moshi Monsters around in!
