Illness is still plaguing our house at the moment, but today I wanted to share with you some of my sewing projects of late.
First up, is another mug rug, I've discovered I love making these, it's a great way to practice making quilt blocks without actually having to make the quilt! (though I would love to eventually make one when I get more accurate with my cutting).
This is the dresden tablecentre that I made for my mum's Chirstmas gift. She has green kitchen countertops so I picked out some coordinating fabrics from my stash that I thought would match well. I sketched out the flower petal shape myself to use as a template and one of my biscuit tins came in handy for the centre peice as well, all I did then was finish it off with some ric-rac trim, and hey-presto!
and lastly, I made a little wall hanging for Robin's nana, though unfortunately I didn't get to snap a pic when it was finished. To finish I handstitched the little hexagons and used linen as the background with a sweet yellow binding. I liked it so much that I might have to make another similar one again for my kitchen.
