The grey and green background that I made while on that lovely stitching retreat a couple of weeks ago, has turned into a quilted tote-style bag.
A Splat on one side, and a Swirl on the other.
This fun fiberart small quilt is now hanging in the towns meeting room along with about 18 similarly size 'self-portrait' quilts, haha.
And I use the words 'self-portrait' very loosely.
(this is nothing like me really, lol)
The mini-me has a scrap strip fabric dress embellished with free-motion scrolls, a crochet bag with embroidered flowers, and she has a needle-felted head, hair AND boobs, and she wears metal wire glasses and two thread friendship bracelets.
Her sandals (flip-flops or jandals) are made with a tiny buttonhole stitch in black thread.
The other mini-me's are all on a similar background with the same binding, and they are all connected together with fabric tabs in the same colour as the binding.
I have finished a quilted chair back cover, or antimacassar, for the old-rocker in the lounge.
It's the Snowball block.
My old teapot cozy bit the dust (it was only about 12 years old lol) so I made a new one.
Love the kiwi fruit fabric for the kitchen.
And my final show for this week is a couple of 'containers'.
Basically made as thread-catchers, but can be used for a number of different things as well.
I need one of these next to my sewing machine because I'm always losing the seam-ripper or little scissors or the feet for the machine or the bobbins or.............
These nice containers will hold everything I need right there.
So you can see I have been sewing up a storm since the retreat.
It was a great way to get me back on track.
All for now.
