I should have…
… Simply numbered my posts, therefore negating the need to think up post titles.
These coasters are fairly quick and easy to put together (bearing in mind I’m not at all confident with sewing) and you may remember Mum made some before Christmas which are ever so handy. So with lots of encouragement frorm her I gave it a go.
I have about 25 fat quarters, which is most of my fabric stash (a pitiful amount, I know. Yes, Meshell! I mean you! :-P) I hate using them because I don’t want to waste them when I go wrong! Which is silly, isn’t it? Anyway, the colour scheme for my new room (I will stop going on about it… Eventually) is red, white and black. Simply because I don’t have an eye for colours, and if it works for The White Stripes, it works for me.
Anyway, my goal is to make a black and white bed quilt. Bearing in mind I’ve never quilted before, I don’t do these things by halves. We’ve also got some neglected wooden clothes hangers that I’ve got my eye on – I’m toying with the idea of padding them and covering them with fabric, but I can’t quite figure out how to do it… Any ideas?
And more photos…
This time it’s SO not going wrong. Nope. This is the progress I made while at the airport yesterday, waiting for my sister’s flight to Australia to be called. I’ve been saying this for weeks now, but I’m so proud of her for going. She stopped over in Bangkok this morning, and she’ll be over there for 5 months! I’m so excited for her – she’s going to Summer Bay (where they film Home And Away) next week!
