Here's a pleated pillow I finished just in time for the Craft Buds Sew Along. It was easy to make, but I would sew together a 2" strip and a 1.5" strip to make the 3" squares....instead of their method. The white screen printed linen is from Karen of Blueberry-Park...and the mustard from a Bloggy Friend Swap. The linen and framed daisies are teal - they look a bit dark in the photo.
Today I've been working on this kitchen aid mixer...it isn't as difficult as it looks. The dotty fabric was our Quilt Club challenge fabric and we had to use any other black,white and one solid colour! I chose Bluebell Blue, I might add some stamped words to the white bowl before I applique it on eg cocoa, flour, sugar, eggs....What do you think? Thanks to Erin at WhyNotSew for the free pattern.
My Heather Ross Charms arrived that I "swapped" in a round about way in the Stale Stash swap with Emily of Strawberry Patch.
....and it would have been silly not to go for value for money on the postage and so I ordered a scrap bundle too. Yummmmy
I am reminded of a sticker my friend Karen has on their old VW camper..... I would love to change it to "Sell my scraps.....".....but thankfully some people do sell them! Sticker from Oilcan Stickers
Other good stuff........my VW panel van has just been reclassified as a "Camper" and so we can get insurance for unlimmited travel abroad.....yipeee...we are nearly off!
Next post will include awards/tags...etc not time to "Play" today, but will be allowed out soon! Though -see my new button...I suddenly had 60 page views...I was featured on SewHappyGeek.
