Enjoy your weekend!
Quite blown away by the amount of visitors I've had visit my previous 'Quilted Coasters' post...5770 so far according to stats.
I have had a no-reply blogger (Anniem) ask what is the fabric used for my coasters which is 'Sweet Dreams' by Robyn Pandolph.
Enjoy your evening!
A trip to the hardware store yesterday with hubby usually means looking at power tools, but I was so surprised when I checked out there little gift section to find the lovliest gift boxed ceramic travel mugs!
Will this stop the slops on my recently made coasters I wonder?
One with little handbags...and the boxes will be handy for storing crafty items in my sewing room
And unable to resist this suitcase today at my local craft store!
I would like to thank everyone who left a comment on my previous Coasters post, but unfortunately I am unable to reply to quite a few as they are no-reply bloggers, if you don't realise you are, just pop over to chookyblue and she has a 'how to' bloggy bits on her side bar explaining how to change from 'no reply'.
Enjoy your weekend!
I realised on the weekend that I needed some coasters for my sewing room. I had to put my coffee mug on one of my recently cut out paper shapes and thought it would make a suitable shape for a coaster. Well you know what happens...I made one, and was quite pleased with it and thought I should maybe have another next to the sewing machine and then one for my little pincushion...Lol! So I ended up making 3!
Mothers Day is coming up, and my Mum is getting so hard to buy for, so I thought I would make a set of the quilted coasters to put with her gift...maybe find some matching mugs!
I hope you are all enjoying your week
It has been a good weekend for making up projects using my little stitcheries...and have finally made up 'Hoot' the sleepy owl. I love to recycle card board ( Thankyou James Boags...lol!) which strengthens the front and back. I can now add a fabric page to the inside (made up of pockets). I am enjoying playing with different shapes at the moment, so will include this in my pockets.
I have been trying not to ramble too much as I noticed my text seems to get smaller the more I type...so please let me know if you are having trouble reading my posts and I can change the text style! Edit...Have changed text style hope it is better!
This is my latest stitchery that I have been working on using all my favourite colour threads...most of the flowers have been stitched with variegated Threadworkz thread which is so lovely to stitch with.
The forecast for the weekend is for rain so great for staying indoors and sewing.
Hope you all have a great weekend too!
Here it is April and I hadn't even covered my diary for the year! I completed the stitchery before Christmas, from Nat Birds 'From The Heart' book, and made it into a diary cover. The pretty fabric I purchased whilst on a holiday in Launceston from Esmes craft store. I wonder if hubby realizes that we always have to holiday where theres a craft shop nearby! Lol!
As you can see only very simple stitching! I have also stipple quilted the top as it's something I enjoy to do.
My little mushroom pin toppers that I made some time back... from the tutorial I found on the lovely Manda's blog.
I hope you are all having a lovely week!
