Friday 25th May 2012I have been trying to build up a gift stash. Somewhere to go to get a gift at the last minute. Hopefully all handmade also. This has seen me cruising the Internet to get inspiration. I came up with a cute idea that is reasonably quick to make, doesn't use heaps of material and should easily fit in a standard size envelope so is cheap and easy to post.
When I showed hubby he said it looks good, but he doesn't have to have one does he? I told him YES and I was going to make a fish one for him! LOL. Seriously, that is a good idea though so I might have a go at one of those later! Stay tuned. There will be more of these to come!
After posting about my quilts the other day, I went searching for some blocks I had been working on more than two years ago. For some reason I thought I had finished more than one block!
|Feathered Friends quilt by Cinderberry Stitches|
This quilt is by a very talented Australian lady called Natalie Lymer from Cinderberry Stitches. She does such whimsical designs. I have one block down and eight to go and then the border! Plenty of work ahead of me.
While I was digging around in my fabric yesterday I also came across a bundle of fabric that I bought to do another quilt with and a packet of stuff that I have started doing a paper pieced quilt with. When I dug out these blocks I found another two (oh my goodness) quilts that are only partly finished!!! All of this work in progress. I really need to stop finding new projects and start finishing ones I have already started! I'd better get to it!
