Yes, I have been finishing things in my cupboard; but first have a look at my Spider's web. The Orb Web spider who built this is a resident around here. It's web is easily seen in the early morning with the sun behind it and drops of dew adding sparkle; it's right outside the dining room ranch slider slung between Kingianum orchids which grow on the side of a now sawn off Ponga Fern trunk. I might try and get a photo of the spider....it won't be as dramatic as the spider at Molly Bawn's place - hers is something else!
As I am doing a demonstration at our group soon on all the uses for Quilt as You Go Hexagons, I put together some little tiny ones I made with Christmas type fabric and have sewn them on to a length of gold and green ribbon as a hanger decoration type thing. (I still have to put a pin of some type at the top. )
Lurking in my cupboard unused was a large square of Chenille I made. After we had a demo on how it was done I made this sample and hadn't made it into anything. It could have been a bag or cushion but I made it into a big zip lock bag ( material instead of plastic ) for carrying sewing stuff. It has some pockets inside and a zip across the top. I realise one with a zipper around 3 side to open out flat would have been ideal but at the weekend when I was making this I didn't have a zipper on hand that size - so used what I had. I put a name label on the outside back and will carry my current project in it. In the close up photo I scrunched the fabric up so you can see how it is made. 4 layers of fabric different colours all sewn down in narrow rows then the 3 top layers cut. These should rough up with use or I could brush them or wash them to make that fluffy chenille look.
As things are still very damp outside I am off to Spring clean the Office drawers that are getting over full.....Oh what fun.
The very bad news is another tooth has broken off ( what is going on ? ), so that will mean even more visits to the Dentist. My next appointment is not till Thursday morning, next week, so I hope it doesn't start aching.
