In the meantime, the old lady is back from the menders and has been on best behavior. Here`s what we have made together...
The Goodie Swap 2011.
To make these fabric baskets, I used this tutorial by the very talented Ayumi. The tutorial was very straightforward except for when I sewed the handles into the lining!
These are not really my colours but I`m hoping my partner will like them. The fabric is Parisville by Tula Pink.
These are the two mug rugs that will be winging their way with the fabrics baskets to the swap partners later this week...
This afternoon I have not been drumming my fingers but belatedly cutting out the backing pieces for this quilt top. There are a gazillion pieces all in neatish piles and waiting to be sewn together. That`ll be the old lady`s job tomorrow...hopefully her last before she heads off into the sunset to Sunnyside Retirement Home for Sewing Machines.
Linking up with Sew Modern Monday and Manic Monday.
So amazed and excited to see I have near on 100 followers...thank you to all my lovely followers and their fabulous comments that make my day!
