Stash Building & Projects
Ok, now I really have to start using from my stash... but Most of these were $2-4/m on sale so I couldn't resist. There are also a few fat quarters and a couple of fabrics that I have an immediate idea for. We'll see if I can get some things constructed soon.
I also ordered a new insert for flat bed sewing... $82.50! I was hoping it would be a bit cheaper, but I need it. That makes my total cost for my new sewing cabinet at about $130 which is still less than they're going on ebay at the moment and it will all suit my machine - at least this is how I'm justifying paying $80 for a piece of plastic!
This cute guy was completed a while ago but I've been working on preparing a pattern to share for him as well. The pattern is now available in the shop!! He is my own pattern which I appliqued, then the background was quilted and turned into a cushion cover.
Are you making any Christmas presents this year? I've got a couple of projects to complete. This is my progress on a rather tricky pattern from the book Omiyage by Kumiko Sudo. I am hand sewing it now because the pieces became too small to get lined up on the machine. I have 6 lots of 4 squares to join together and then it is assembled into a little bag.
