Hallelujah for the cool change! Whilst Melbourne has sweltered under the longest string of days over 32 degrees celsius, there has not been much sewing happening! Some of my Ms Midge dress orders have been on hold, for otherwise I may very well have withered away to nothing. Instead, I spent some afternoons sitting here upstairs in the air-conditioning
wasting spending my time very wisely, pawing over Pinterest and blogs! Which is what leads me to the TWO W.I.P's I managed to get going - albeit very slowly!
|The following day I felt compelled to make another thing I'd seeing flying around the traps. Geese. Flying Geese. I used THIS tutorial. I am continually petrified by all the fabulous designs and techniques I see in the quilting world, and am equally surprised when I manage to figure it out. So yay for me!|
|A gaggle of geese. I have plans for these birds......|
|And I then went back to the Craftsy BOM I joined for free, and took a deep breath before diving in to this baby! More geese! In fact, a circle of geese! This is my second attempt at paper piecing, and I must say, it was certainly easier than I had anticipated. I'd only ever seen this pattern using white background, but the receiver of this gift is not a white background kind of girl! I love the effect. It will end up a cushion. I still have no idea how I'm going to finish it off, as it's too small at the moment!|
So that's it my friends. Another week, another TWO W.I.P's to add to the pile!
I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced!
