Well what a mammoth week I've had! I was very excited to see Lee's directions posted early Friday morning for putting the Bloom Bloom Pow blooms together, but alas, did not get around to finishing my part until yesterday! When I started placing it all out on the weekend, I wasn't entirely happy with how it was looking. I felt like it was too "slim". So yesterday, I banged out a couple more blooms.
|First attempt - 12 blooms|
|Finished product - 14 blooms! I was so utterly pleased with myself when I'd finished putting this top together! I'm really excited to get this baby up to single bed size, and figuring out how to use all the "scraps" to bring it all together.|
|I love this view. Sooooo Pretty!|
|Now my points are far from perfect, but really not too bad!|
Another WIP I played with, is my bee blocks for my month being queen! I chose THESE tutorials, and asked the ladies to use some nice bright scraps and Iron grey homespun. I LOVE how this looks, and am looking forward to working out the right placement for them. It is going to become a quilt for our lounge room. I was sitting in there the other night with a fluffy throw rug on and said to my husband that we needed a quilt for in there. To which he responded "I'm pretty sure you can fix that!"
|So scrappy and yummy!|
And this below my friends, is what would be commonly known as "mind numbing production line". My darling Mother has popped zips in the backs of nearly all 116 cushion covers, so yesterday I spent three and a half hours squaring them all up and sewing them together. I got through 40 of them! Just waiting on the extra special labels to arrive so I can bind them all! I'm getting there.....
And my last WIP this week? Well, it involves a visit to the car wash. You see, last week when driving Chloe home from creche, she was complaining of a sore tummy. Which she does ALL THE TIME. I changed the subject, and she told me she was going to be sick. I told her she wasn't going to be sick "don't be silly" I say. And she vomitted. In my car. All over the floor upholstery. Sooooooo, after several attempts of cleaning and getting the smell out myself, I took it to the car washes for a steam clean.
