I recently participated in "Occupy your Sewing Room" which ran from the 3rd to the 10th December. This was organised by Barbara
Here is what I got up to.
I finished the quilt I have been working on. This one is designed by Paula Stoddard and is called "Jacks on Six." It is a very cloudy day here not great for taking photo's. This quilt has been on my "to do list" for the whole of 2011. I will probably hand quilt this one over Summer.
I made a start on six place mats. These have been machine embroidered with historical buildings from around West Australia.
Hopefully these will be finished by Christmas. If not you can give New Year's presents can't you.
I had this Teapot design saved on my sewing machine for quite a while. I used some Insul-Bright for the wadding. So now we have a hot pad especially for our teapot.The hot pad measure 12 inches long by 10 inches wide.
This design took 57 minutes to stitch out because it had 27105 stitches on it.
Thanks so much Barbara for Hosting this sewing event. Make sure you check out and see what everyone got up to.
I also have received two prizes from recent giveaway wins. The first one to arrive was a facial scrub which is for Ian. I won this from Craft Gossip. This site is wonderful and has lots of different ideas. The other one is the Quiltmakers Magazine which I won from Heidi. Heidi has another Friday- Night -Sew- In this week. I plan to get the binding on a quilt. What are you doing on FNSI?
Whatever you do,do it with a smile from your heart.
