Stack of Critters #7

These little guys are just So cute! This is a joy to stitch.
Hope you all have a productive weekend! I'm off to buy a walking foot for my sewing machine so I can do some quilting on gifts for next year's Christmas! I'm getting in really early!
Happy Stitching,

Doona Covers - done

I finally had all 6 finished doona covers in the same spot so I took a picture of them all hanging on the clothes line. I am so pleased with them and can't wait to do more patchwork projects.
I didn't get any stitching done over the weekend - very lazy! I hope to get back into it this week before it heats up again...
Happy Stitching,

Christmas Stocking Update

The family for whom I stitched 3 stockings earlier this year have hung them up on display in their home and they look great! I just hope they get filled with lots of goodies for each of them...
It's nice to see my work being used all the way over in England!
Happy Stitching,

Stack of Critters #6 and lots of sewing



I had a very productive weekend which I am very pleased about. I got a little cross-stitching done and heaps of sewing...
A peg bag to replace the one that is falling apart. It took me 4 peg bags to get it right, but eventually I got this one exactly the way I wanted it. This will be for my sister who is moving into a new home in the next few weeks. I've got slightly more dodgy ones for me and a friend and one spare as well. The bias binding around the hole took a bit of work but going slow is the key (for me anyway)...
And this I am really pleased with - it is the Believe You Can Quilt panel that I got from the Quilter's Closet. I sewed it up all in one afternoon, and my corners all match as well - very pleased with myself! It is such a sweet pattern and just so cute. I've sewn it as a gift but I am oh so tempted to keep it for myself! I have some beautiful pale grey minky blanket fabric to put on the back so it will be a lovely knee rug for the recipient.
Fast Track - Panel
I also pinned the Fast Track panel for my nephew which I am going to make into a knee rug for him to use when watching the Cars dvds. I hope to quilt it together over the next few nights. It will also have soft minky blanket fabric on the back making it nice and cosy!
Happy Stitching,

Stack of Critters #5

The next critter is starting to take shape...
Big weather warning for Melbourne this weekend with 3 months worth of rain expected in the next 2-3 days! I think our house should be OK, but I do have some concerns for my library at work as it has flooded before... We'll be keeping a close watch today! Hopefully the drains can cope with the expected amount of water. Only time will tell. It could be a soggy Monday if things don't go well...

Happy Stitching,
Kerrie
