Projects waiting in the wings.
Now that I have the majority of my fabric stash sorted out, I can get on with sewing some items that have been waiting for me to find suitable bits to complete them. Looking back at my post in April, I made an experimental block in scrap fabrics to see what the design I had chosen for the Japanese quilt might look like. Today I added a navy blue border to match the sashing, and pulled out a dark blue and aqua fish fabric to use as the backing. This is going to be a coffee table runner for a friend who has recently bought a holiday house near the sea, and as she doesn't sew, I think she will like this. If not, I'll keep it for myself - LOL!
I made a throw and two cushions for myself a while ago, and used another piece of the same animal fabric to make a rabbit cushion for a friend. She loved it, and also liked the bear in the same design. I'm not into bears at all really, so I am going to make this last piece into a place mat for her.
Can't remember where I got this cat fabric from - possibly the opshop, but could have been given to me by a catloving friend. I've been meaning to do something with it for ages, and tonight I pulled some fabrics from my scraps box to preview with the cats, prior to making a table mat or runner.
So! What is everyone else up to?
