I have been trying hard to do my 20 minutes a day - sewing, knitting, quilting or crochet! Its not that i don't want to do it, its just trying to find the time - i seem to have quite a few projects on the go, as usual!! However i have actually finished something - hurray! Trashy had organised a Spring Swap and i was luck enough to be drawn as her swap partner. I had an idea in mind - which i was actually going to make for her birthday, but as usual time shot past and i didn't get round to it! However once the swap was announced i knew exactly what i was going to make! So here it is, all wrapped up and ready to go!
and this is it - ta-da!!!
Its my version of the Australian flag - i met Trashy for lunch yesterday and gave it to her and she loved it! I soo enjoyed making it for her.
The rest of this week i've been trying to sort out what projects i need to finish and this quilt is one of them - i started it last winter, its flannel fabric and very snuggly. So i have now put my layers all together, basted them and am about to start quilting, just have to sort out which design and this time i'm going to hand quilt it!
This pic does not do the fabric justice, the colours are much better in real life!!
Whilst i was sorting out projects i found one that had been given to me ages ago, its a bag design by Jane Crowfoot and it has intarsia and fairisle - eeek, neither of which i have tried. So i thought as it was there i might give it a go - so if you hear a lot of swearing it will probably be me!!!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend.
