Something I haven't done in what feels like ages is make a red & quilt.
It's a small version of my Picnic Quilt for the Christmas in July workshop at Avonleigh next month. Made last weekend, quilted during the week, with plans to snuggle under it and stitch the binding on this weekend. It is a beautiful sunny day here, but oh so cold!
Do you pin? It's something I try to keep to a minimum. Over the years I've developed the habit of pulling pins out and dropping them beside the machine. I'm sure it only takes a couple of seconds to go the extra step and stick them in a pincushion, but it interupts the flow of whatever I'm sewing. That's why this pins & needle keep is perfect for me. It has a magnet inside and I keep it beside my machine.
I have kits for the Red Flower & Pink Flower.
What's great about these kits, is they're already prepped! No tracing and cutting, you can start doing the fun stuff, stitching, straight away.
The kits cost $15 each plus $3.00 P&H within Australia.
What I should be working on is the fourth project for the Christmas in July workshop at Avonleigh. When these tempting buttons arrive in the post from Barb, Theodora Cleave, its very difficult to stay on track!
I'm giving myself the rest of the weekend to play and then it's back to finalising the projects for the workshop.
