Just poking along
Last night I basted a quilt I made for my great-niece, I should be able to get it quilted and mail it off in time for Christmas. I'll post a picture after it's quilted. Maybe ;o)
Then I dug into my batik stash and pulled some fabrics to make a few camera/ipod holders from a tut I found at Sew Mama Sew. The tutorial looks really easy, so it shouldn't take long to make the first one ... then we'll see how many I can make this weekend. The fabrics below are for 3 different ones:
Nadine just got in that lovely batik that's on the top, it's sort of a mottled brown-gold-rust color ... well, it's hard to describe but you can see it! The one beneath it has the alphabet, a thru z, written in script; it was on sale and I bought all that was left on the bolt because I'm a little piggy. :o) Here's a close up of the pattern:
Isn't that gold-y color really pretty? It's one of those pieces that has to look great no matter what I put it with, so in my book it's a sure winner!
Thank you all for visiting and for your comments, I like getting feedback! Carol, I would love to get to know you through your blog, aren't they a great invention (whose idea was it, anyway??). You can spend literally hours going from one blog to another one, to another and another! Mama, I like your slow-poke "confessory," - even if I didn't work full-time, I doubt I'd be a quilt-a-week person, LOL. Wanda I look forward to seeing your completed embroidery quilt!
