Yes, it's party time in the Chookshed to celebrate 5 years of fabric, fun and friendship. I've managed to don my party hat briefly and make some prep time happen towards my A Holly Cottage Christmas stitch-a-long quilt.
With chores done yesterday I was about to start cutting into these lovelies.
Until Mr C requested help with one of the bore pumps. Then it was time to head into town for the annual show and Grandson J came home with us afterwards. So today when Pa and J went to check the molasses tubs, out came the iron, cutting mat, rulers and cutter.
Finished just in time to get smoko. All base fabric squares, sashes, first and outer borders and binding cut ready. Waiting now till the spare bed is spare once more so I can lay them all out for a look see.
Seems to have been a long gap between posts and finished projects...every now and then I manage a flourish of finishes.
First is the best...Little Parker's Farm is done done done
and won first place at our local show on the weekend.
I've had the pattern for these baby change mats since August last year...finally two finished and off to DD and DIL.
Yesterday I still had nothing ready for 1 Xmas Item a Month and it so happened that while rearranging some patterns recently, I found a long ago printed off pattern. Diving into a scrap bag, 8 tissue packet covers found there way into my gift box.
A successful tally for OPAM too. As there are only a few April days left, I best get needle and thread stitching to finish my next Calendar Bear.
