My current FAL list is, well, laughable, but I'm plodding away and have a finished project to show you!
At the start of the quarter I set out to make an EPP pin cushion using some of my Japanese import fabrics and I'd chosen these fabrics:
After my Oakshott table runner was (finally!) pieced, I needed some hand sewing to replace it and this was the perfect choice!
I did a bit of planning and then cut out my papers (from 5mm squared paper so I didn't have to faff with rulers!) and got tacking. I also use a line of Pritt Stick along the centre of the paper to hold the fabric in place while I centre it.
I then got to work stitching. The black dotty fabric isn't shiny, it's just the paper inside catching the flash!
And after a couple of nights, I was ready to add the bottom. That piece was supposed to be the top, but as it's reversible and there's no real bottom to a pin cushion, it was fine!
Archie quite likes playing peepo round one of the new chairs:
|Have you forgotten to feed me? I'm worried you have. Please feed me before I slip through a crack in the pavement. I already disappear when I turn sideways. Look at me, I've seen more fat on a butcher's pencil. FEED ME NOW!|
|I want something and I'm going to make you guess what it is. To help, I'll whinge until you get it right.|
I think he's found a new hobby!!!
Thanks for popping in! I'll be linking up this finish when the link opens at the end of the month - not long now!
P.S. There are a couple (I think) of new Summersville stories going up in a moment, click on the page at the top to find them!
