Beccy has been making these
and appears to have picked up my bad habit of leaving the needle in the arm of the settee, so I made her one of these:
This was a lot easier to make than the cathedral windows cushion that I made - and much quicker! She now has no excuse for leaving her needles lying around!
I also made myself a needle case today from this great tutorial
I have been wanting to make one for a while
Its nice and big too - about 6.5 inches tall, with a pocket as well, to hold scissor, thread etc
tonight I will be staying in, watching the rugby and doing some hand quilting. I see we are forecast for heavy snow here tomorrow morning, turning to sleet later (boo) - so may stay inside for the day!
Oooh great makes. The ladybird fabric is really cute.ReplyDelete
