I have been busy this past week designing, setting up and sewing my items for my swap partner in the
that Cheryl over at http://stitchingcubbyhole.blogspot.com.au/ has organised.
First I spent a lovely hour playing with fabrics and still didn't have a final decision so picked 12 fabrics and narrowed them down.These are the final selection which has resulted in two items.
Then it was on to deciding and designing what i was going to make. That done I drew up the patterns.
Then onto the cutting out. design 1 is below.
And design 2 is below!
And because i cannot decide which one I like the most my swap partner will probably receive them both with some choccies. No initials showing so the surprise is still a surprise!!!
And onto the cushion which has been sitting in my sewing basket three quarters done for 5 years. Well it is now sitting on one of the lounge chairs finished and waiting for its insert. Such a good feeling!
My sewing addiction has been well fed this past week and i am feeling good. tomorrow will be a day in the garden assessing the damage the 45 degree heat has done. I think the vegie garden is to the stage of pulling out and getting ready for the autumn/winter plantings.
More on that later. have a lovely evening.
