It's been really busy in the life of Fee lately. I have had 2 weeks leave for "Let's Get Stitched with time at home before and after the event but the time just seemed to fly by.
I have drawn up a few new designs in that time and have had lot's of time stitching them.
I decided that it was about time I broke into my Cottage Garden Threads stash and start to use some instead of lovingly gazing at it. I auditioned some threads to go with the little birdy button and decided on "Coconut Ice" (The one on the right).
And I was very brave and actually used a teeny weeny bit of my wool stash too for this one - I have a real problem with actually using the items I buy - Do you too?
And I have also been using up some of my treasured Theodora Cleave Buttons. It is nice to use them in a project you love and I just love this Cup of Tea one ...... "Life is like a Cup of Tea ... It's all in how you make it" How very true.
Both of these new stitcheries are available NOW over at Fee's Shabby Shack in paper format. You can also buy the buttons there too.
And I have designed a BRAND NEW child's quilt which is currently in the hands of Australia Post on it's way back from being quilted. It features a gorgeous little Elephant - As soon as she arrives home and she has had her binding put on I will introduce you.
I have cut quilts for it too - They took me way longer than I thought they would. Gosh I don't think I could do that day in day out !
I was very proud of myself as I used up all of the left over scraps from making the quilt and turned them into little applique hearts for wheat bags which I will make in the coming weeks.
The remainder of my time off was spent cutting fat quarters
Lots and Lots of Fat Quarters
All ready for a quilt show I am attending locally in April.
So you can see that I kept myself pretty busy in the past few weeks.
I am now working on a BRAND NEW quilt design - I know I said I wasn't designing for awhile but when inspiration hits you just have to go with it !!
Love and Hugs,
