Monday night when I got home from work I decided Nomee needed a work out - she has been taking it easy lately, just a little bit here and there.
This is serious and I had been cutting after work this past week so I had plenty of projects ready to go - well can I just say we had a very successful session and concluded with a finish and an almost finish before midnight.
As work has gotten exceptionally busy with a major deadline looming I have been spending too much time there to get very creative with Christmas presents so my five nieces will all be getting a variation on the same theme this year.
I used some of the blocks cut from the Christmas panel to make these two patchwork blocks which will become part of a bigger project.
I made this Biscornu pincushion just because the pattern was there and it looked much easier to construct than I had previously imagined - it was a breeze. Yay a finish - well it was the almost last night as I neglected the button, but I fixed that this morning first thing. I have today off to go to my craft group Christmas break up - a girls gotta get some time out for good behaviour.
Here is the first finish - a small jewellery pouch only four more to go, but three more are already started in the picture above.
All of these projects were inspired by projects in one magazine - convenient that I didn't have to shuffle. Handmade Vol28 No4 from sometime in 2010.
Best get myself sorted and make something for afternoon tea then I can sew some more.
Hope you get to share with friends this week.
