I spent time today doing lots of cutting out. I cut binding for the 1930's baby quilt, which I might add I quilted last night.
I stitched in the ditch around the pinwheels and stippled (very bravely) the D9P blocks!
I cut a couple of laundry bags for Afghanistan including a cute little A4 size one to go with Belvedere's Quilt. I wasn't going to make one for him as he is a turtle after all but an Aussie Hero Friend delivered a quilt to me today and when she saw Belvedere's quilt she asked if I was going to and .....well..... one thing led to another and before I knew it I was getting out my turtle fabric and rotary cutter!
Here is Belvedere's completed quilt....
And here is his turtle laundry bag! Just the right size for him I think?
And here is his "bosses" laundry bag.
I also cut out two polar fleece tops and tracksuit pants in size 5 for my little niece in Melbourne. After that it was time to rest the hands as cutting with scissors is not good for the arthritis!
Luckily the postman came and delivered a new book - bought this with a gift voucher my sister gave me.
Looks very interesting!
I think this is one of my favourite patterns.
And to really make life interesting the A button on my laptop broke! Not happy! Blah!
Before I go - is this fabric any good to anyone? There is about half a meter (or half a yard of the Houston Texans fabric and about three 6 1/2" ish strips of the cowboys fabric. I have no use for it so give me a shout if you can use it. I am happy to send it to you, just leave me a comment.
And one last thing before I go...
Till next time.................happy stitching!
