Fellow quilters, you make me smile! Your humourous responses to my last post definitely confirmed we all make a mess when sewing and that I really shouldn't worry :)
I did tidy up though - you saw the 'befores' and here are the 'afters':
And so today, I could make a new mess! I made two more Pants Bags (for my cousins in Germany), a cushion for my sewing room and I started a new lap quilt.
The Pants Bags were made out of my scraps and stash so I never quite know what design they'll end up as until I put the fabric piles together. These are #4 and #5 ... just two more to make before my Mutter goes to Germany next month:
And this little cushion was made for me from the leftovers of Aunty Ruth's layer cake quilt:
Please pardon the fugly chair - it's vintage Lloyd Loom :)
I'll post more about my new lap quilt later but here is the fabric I've chosen for it:
That's enough for one day. You can tell the evenings are drawing in - I covered my legs with my lap quilt and look who joined me a minute later! I can count on both hands how many times in 3 years this little rescue cat has sat on my lap. Thank you, Nell - each time is precious:
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.
