I finished a couple of projects before we went camping, so it’s time for a bit of a round up…
First up is this new crochet hook roll.. I love this fabric. Whenever I use it, people ask me what it is, so just for the record it’s Vintage Couturier Buttons from Robert Kaufman.
Second up is this quilt-as-you-go log cabin pouch – I hugely enjoyed doing this one. One of the thing’s that’s great about it is that when I look at it I can see fabrics given to me by Kerry (from Very Kerry Berry), by Jane (who doesn’t have a blog sadly) and by Gwen (from Celtic Fusion Fabrics). If you cant read that little bit of text at the top it says: “Having confidence in stylishness – change your mental attitude” – there’s definitely a lesson in there somewhere…!
Finally, something a little bit different (but more log cabin!) – these little booties are a prototype for my entry to the Pings and Needles Japanese Scrap bag challenge. I am very delighted about how CUTE they’ve turned out. But there are a couple of mistakes – one of them rather obvious, so I’m glad I had a first try before I used my competition bag of scraps.
There are 10 of us through to the second round of this competition, and we’re all busy making things with a scrap bag provided by the wondrous Eternal Maker. The closing date is next week, so I am now working with the ‘real’ fabrics… *bites nails* – one wrong cut could be disastrous!
