Last Saturday I went to the Appliqué Day at Skellywag, Barnawartha. This is always a fun day.
My dilemma is what to sew, will I work on something for myself or samples for my business. This time I felt like I could do both.
I've been steadily stitching away at the Tree Ornaments. I made one for each of the girls attending Christmas in July and they looked so lovely hanging on the twig tree I needed a set for myself. I’ve made over thirty now, so that tells you a few things 1) they’re addictive, 2) easy and 3) fun to make.
Apart from the sewing, the pattern has been written and it’s now at the printers. So if you’re looking for that last minute gift to make the Tree Ornament could be just the thing.
You know what these sewing days are like, lots of chit chat, laughing, eating and oohing and aahing over all the fabulous stuff others are making, so you’re never sure how much sewing will be done. Just in case I finished the trees and was sitting twiddling my thumbs I threw in a quilt to bind. I did that ‘will I or won't I take it’ and nearly left it at home. So pleased I didn’t, as I sewed down two sides and kept going Saturday night. Finished!
I enjoy having some creative fun with the back of a quilt.
