I have seen these on several sites in blogland and thought they looked so cute. So with the fabric I got for Christmas from the Boys I thought I would make a couple to see how they turned out. What do you think?
I now plan to make more as they seem like great gifts with a Christmas mug and some homemade cookies. I thought I had better start now rather than wait until nearer Christmas as it usually gets very busy and my good intentions of homemade gifts goes out the window.
I also have an idea for Eldest son for a mug rug but will show that when it is done.
I had a great weekend sewing. The Boys were out swimming and skiing (not snow dry slopes) but that meant I had the house to myself. Well Treacle and I had the house to ourselves. She spent the two days in her basket asleep, whilst I was busy sewing. The weather was not good!
Anyway I finished my bag and started a new project, a sewing machine cover. I use my desk, which is really for work, for sewing and my machine gets dusty so I thought it was a good idea.
What always amazes me is how long it takes to cut out the material. Especially when you need lots of little strips and squares and oblongs.
I will show you the finished product when I have done, hopefully by the end of the week.
Never let it be said that I don’t spring clean everything, including our Airedale Terrier Treacle! Yes she went for an haircut. Now what you have to realise is that every time I do this the weather goes from being really nice and quite warm for spring, to cold! Of course that means shes cold! But doesn’t she look cute.
I also spring cleaned her beds and she was most annoyed with me so when her bed quilt was washed and dried I had to give it her back until the cover was dry!
She’s still cute though!
I finished the bag I was making with the dreadful pattern. In the end I fixed it the way I thought it should go! What do you think?
This is also for Quilt Club’s Fat Quarter Challenge for April.
Looking through the pictures from our trip to The States last year in April, I found some fantastic shots for spring and thought I would share with you.
This is the view from my den window yesterday morning and isn’t it wonderful. I have all the windows open to let the fresh air in and the temperature is going up and at lunch it was really warm. I took a cup of tea out and sat on our bench and it was lovely.
DH also saw some new born lambs whilst out and about on business as well. I will try and get some pictures when I am out as they start to appear.
I have done it, finished yeah!! The Spring Cleaning is done, what a relief. I still have to do the garden, garage, shed, den, kennel and patio, but at least the weather is getting better. I love it when it is finished, hate it when I am in the middle of it!
