I'm working on a couple of pillows for my bed. I've never been a "lots of pillows" sort of gal, but I'm having a bedroom makeover.
This is my new handbag finally finished.
I put a shorter handle than I normally do - for a change, and used a buckle loop that I haven't used before. I also tried one of the twist and turn closures.
I'm very happy with the result, and have been strutting my stuff at work this week.
My cousin sent me a box full of Camelias which was a lovely treat.
I did happen to catch the cat having a sip from the water they were floating in!
These lovely jonquils are from my garden. They are popping up everywhere and show such signs of promise for Spring Time.
I did finish this little crotched basket a few weeks ago - a bit of fun.
Now I had a request from my last post to talk more about this quilt and how I made it. When I went to take a photo, look who I found sitting comfortably upon it!!
Here's a close up of one of my quilted pillows.
To be quite honest, I've had this quilt "on the go" for such a long time, that I have really forgotten how exactly I put it together. I know that there was no pattern involved. I just had all my favourite Amy scraps, and wanted to make a big, snuggly quilt, one school holidays last year.
I remember putting the quilt top together quite quickly. I had to keep adding bits to the edges to keep making it just a little bit bigger. Then I decided to hand quilt it. I did some quilting early on, and then it got folded and tucked away. When I got it out a few weeks ago, I realised I'd done quite a lot, and that I should just get on and finish it, so that's what I did. Now I'm thrilled with the finish, and that's why I'm going all out with the extra pillows. I'll take another photo when they're all done.
