Had a go at machine patchwork ~ hard to believe I had never had a go at it before ~ but I think I'm too impatient a sewer to be as neat as I should be hence the disgusting seams and placement of the squares. I can live with imperfection though. Gives a certain eclectic charm to the fabric. (yeah, yeah any excuse..) Trying to make a throw for my bed. Ran out of fabric though and have ordered some more. Bought two sheets to use for the backing and front as I need metres of it and found I had bought a flat and fitted sheet instead of two flat! Trying to economise here. Grrr.... Queen size that are now on my bed instead so I am using them, however....
Like my cushion? Planned this one so I could sit quietly and do some sewing by hand. That's a big thing for me. Very satisfying. Used to hand quilt a while ago. Should show you what I made all those 'pre-children' years ago in another post. Actually finished this one :)
And another cushion ~yet to be stuffed~ re-vintaged from a crummy old framed embroidery. Lovely Sanderson 'Chelsea' Linen for the back. Will go finish that now that my boys are finally asleep... What have you been up to?
