I have done a few small projects lately- but that is probably an act of procrastination. I have 2 things to do- 1. quilt a mystery quilt, and I have no idea how to do it, and 2 a complicated paper pieced project. I am not in a rush to get to either. Doing these smalls, means I still can sew and not get too distracted.
First was a table centre. I saw this months One Block Wonder on Upstairs Hobby Room and decided to have a play. I got out my Tula fabric and chose some pretty colours. I made the 4 blocks and made it up into a table centre. If I did it again I would change the values of some of the fabrics, but it is pretty
Second was a cushion. When we were in the UK I saw my first robin.My second name is Robyn, so I was thrilled to see them. I talked to my friend, Loretta about Robins and she said she feeds them in her pretty garden. She used a robin as her Christmas Facebook profile so when I saw the pattern in the Tartan Kiwi store I knew I had to make something for her from it. I decided to make a cushion cover as she has a summer house overlooking the garden, and the robin would be perfect for there.
The cushion cover is on it's way to the UK.
Third and Fourth.
On Thursday I had been reading blogs for the past couple of weeks, and Valentines Day had been a recurring topic. I normally have no trouble discounting them, but on this day I suddenly decided to make a sweet little heart from Canoe Ridge Creations
.....and I immediately started on another. This was from Cluck Cluck Sew- the I Heart You pattern. I made it into a table runner. I gave it to my son, so hope they use it.
Now to get back to what I should be doing.....
