Hello bloggers! thank you for all your lovely comments about my quilts. I have to say, I'm definitely in a quilty mood at the moment. I don't know how long it will last, probably 'till the winter gloom makes it too hard to see the fabrics properly!
As a diversion this week I made some owls from the rest of my wool pieces. I'm not usually a fan of toy making, or anything that involves cutting and sewing fiddly shapes, but these were easy and fun to make and I think they're really cute. The bits of old crochet lace give them a bit of character and I even found a basket "nest" the right size for them :)
There was a bit more quilt making with the squares I cut out ages ago. There were enough for a cot size quilt which was nice and quick to put together. Backed with a peachy pink dotty fabric and bound with blue and white stripe it would make a sweet gift for a baby girl. I'll be taking it (and the owls) along to the craft fair, but it'll probably end up in my etsy shop, maybe along with the matching doll quilt.
Right! I'd better go and catch up with some housework as the ironing fairy doesn't seem to have visited lately :(
Bye for now
