Spring Planting

flower pot

Today it is raining so there is no chance to be outdoors planting my pansies and pots ready for the summer. I will have to content myself with fabric plant pots courtesy of an old Ruby McKim pattern.

So get Sewing!

Easter Hoildays

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

Well, I am gradually getting back into the swing of home life again after a break away at Easter.

I did some stitching whilst away, surprise surprise! But the biggest surprise of all was this sewing machine on display at the hotel where we stayed! And it was on my floor, just a few feet from my door!

Better Sewn Than Not

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

I need to stitch another Patchwork Bear to send out as a class adertisement. As I had some red  5″ squares cut I have sewn them together into a patchwork ready to cut them up for bear body parts! 

Before I sewed the squares I was not that fussed by them, but now they are together I am thinking is this the start of a simple quilt? Is this the centre of a medallion quilt? Basically they look a lot more exciting sewn together that they did in a pile!

The moral here is that it is better sewn than not!

Or they could still become a bear!
