So I’m plodding along with all the things I have to do in January, but with nothing finished to share. I’ve also been experimenting with my new camera – trying to get to grips with all its buttons and gizmos (and it’s not even a complicated DSLR..!), so I thought I’d blog some of my works in progress..
A friend has commissioned a wallet with a log cabin panel, based on this colour scheme over on Design Seeds. After some nervous wobbles (hate making for friends) I am feeling good about this one:
I have actually finished the hand quilting on my carrot cushion. Sadly I haven’t actually finished the cushion part of it – and it was meant to be a Christmas present. Don’t worry though, my sister got sloe gin instead, I don’t think she minded too much. I’m now telling myself that I’ve made a very early start on her birthday present, which is good, right?
I’m not too sure about these – but I’m hoping that I’ll feel better about them once I’ve made them up into pouches. I’m quite pleased with the pictures though – it was a rather dismal day when I took them and you can see all the stray threads very clearly! Looking back over these pictures I’ve realised that I’m clearly incapable of making anything without a bit of Denyse Schmidt in the mix. Which is why I CAN’T WAIT for the return of Flea Market Fancy..
Finally, a very silly pic… we got a new sourdough starter going after Christmas and the first loaf we made with it was a bit lively in places…
Never can resist a prehistoric-erupting-loaf photo..
