I just love public holiday Mondays... today is the third day of my weekend!
While I've not been highly productive this weekend, it's been great to get a couple of small things done.
This huge octopus of strips, which I cut last week, has now become the binding for my Sow's Ear Quilt... I'm hoping it will be back from the quilter soon, as my Reveal deadline is getting closer.
DD-Y needed a new pencil case for the uni year, so I put one together for her... yes it's HER choice
of fabric🙂 The lining is a purple like you see on the outside.
Thanks to Florence at 'Flossie Teacakes' & her great tutorial, I now have one very pleased daughter♥
The zipper technique was new to me, but Florence explains it well & there is heaps of great pics.
Yesterday whilst scrolling through my IG feed, I noticed that a business I follow was in my area, as a vendor at a quilters group gathering... I spied some wool felt in one of her pics & was able to find out that she was still there... so I jumped at my chance to get some felt.
Tanya is the owner of Cotton Rose, a beautiful shop about 90 minutes south of me... it was lovely to meet her & put a face to the IG loveliness she posts @cotton_rose1.
I really only use wool felt for putting in needle books, but don't like to order it online... I like to see the colours first, before I make my choice.
Do you use wool felt in your crafting??
I hope you have a great Monday... well, as good as Mondays can get!
