Hi blogger's I'm still here.
It's been a bit hectic here with my son starting his new
Apprenticeship and we have to get him to work at 8 in the morn,
as he's not old enough to drive yet his dad and i are his Taxi.
(Not used to getting up so early)
It's been a couple of weeks now and we
are getting into a routine.
(can't wait for him to pass his driving test though!!!)
I've been having a play with patch working and just finished
My little stash of material
I'm not sure what this pattern is called i saw it in a magazine
i bought from W H Smiths patch working for beginners.
In the mag they made a place mat but i wanted to
make mine into a more practical cushion.
I also had a go a free motion quilting
managing a loopy swirl travelling up and down the blocks.
Gosh it's harder than you think.
I had a few practise go's before i plucked up the courage
to work on my cushion front.
A little bit scared and a
deep breath off i went.
It turned out alright for a first go,
there are some fab patterns out there
more practise needed though.
I even had a go at making my own bias edging.
I love it
so much so as i was wandering around blogland
and came across a fabulous pattern called
I was desperate to try.
So as soon as i finished this cushion i was straight onto the next
and a few YouTube tutorials later off i went.
Here's a sneaky peak
I have used some Tilda fabric i picked up cheap.
I will share it properly with you when i have finished it.
