Time

Going to work doesn't half cut into my sewing time!! OH well, got to get the money to feed my habit SOMEHOW... and I am sure there are worse ways to go about it!! lol

A very warm welcome to Alice hope you stay a while xx

WELL .. my January project-of-the-month is finished ....

                                               DRUM ROLL       (please)


The 2 centre panels are both A4 size, so I stuck with the rules of that as a starting point.


I don't usually work with strips of fabric, so I stuck with the rule of it being different.


I WAS challenged with this as having points that DELIBERATELY don't match is definitely something new....USUALLY it just happens lol x


OF course I had to use embellishments


This will be going to show-and-tell ( both my quilt groups restart in the next 2 weeks), and then it will be winging its way to Sally in Australia. The cushion pad is NOT going ... they can get their own!!

I found I did enjoy this ... I had begun to think it would NEVER happen! Now I can do "other" things before thinking about the February project xx

Keep smiling

Diane xx

I love your pillow, I made a green quilt and it was so much fun working w/fabrics.

That's lovely Diane. I love green, it is so restful. The embellishments are a great touch and I am sure that Sally will love it too.

What a lovely cushion cover, I'm sure your daughter will love it. I need to get on and make some for myself. When I changed some to put Christmas cushion covers on I washed them, but got the settings mixed up on my new washing machine and they shrank dreadfully. So, new ones are needed.
