I announced this, and immediately lots of requests were made for things that 'we really need'!!
So, I am half way through making a 'scooter bag' for those trips out when it gets too tiring to scoot anymore, and the scooter needs to be carried.... should be finished tonight.
And, (about 12 months after the rest of you) I have got into making baskets.
Me and Louise had a sewing evening and made these from the pink penguin tutorial
I am going to make one in more masculine colours so that Mark can keep his wallet, phone and ipod etc in one place rather than scattering them around the house!
I've made two round baskets for the bathroom to keep things organised! Using this fab tutorial for round baskets..... so simple, and great fun to make.
And, I have been wanting to give these birds on a perch a go for ages, since I saw a kit for them in the Summer. I'm not totally sure of my fabric choices, and they do have a tendency to nose dive - so I need to perfect my technique of getting the driftwood right! But I am hoping to make more with all the driftwood I collected when in St Andrews.
A reminder that we will be 'stitching it together' again in January, and everyone is welcome. I need to work out some paper piecing for us to have a go at..... I'm thinking star burst blocks or scrappy pot holders - any views on those???
“Stitching it Together”
We are meeting again on Wednesday 9th January 2013, 7pm onwards.
Last time we had lots of fun when Hannah taught us how to crochet. There has been talk of us tackling a paper pieced block next time…..
Or, if you want to bring something else you are working on that is fine.
There will be cake!!!!
Hope to see you there, Tanya x
