I finished off (hand)sewing down the binding on the table runner I began earlier in the year as a thankyou gift for my daughter's childcare teacher from last year (yes, SUPER late, I know!)
Now all it needs is a wash & to make some 3D flowers to go on opposing corners ... or maybe I'll just skip the flowers and just give it to her like this (??... hmmm ...). I took inspiration from some table runners that Rhianon (@ The Nifty Stitcher) made for Christmas gifts and shared on FB this past December. Thankfully she was happy for me to do this as I adore the ones she made!! The backing fabric is the same as the cream w/ blue flowers in the outer border.
FMQing deets ... The white centre is divided into 8 squares, each quilted in a feathered design; the brown border has a loopy design with two different heights to the loops (1/2way & full); and the outer border has a continuous one-sided feather (using the brown border as the 'inner stem').
When this was finished, I completed the remaining stitching on my SKoW tree block. Here is the finished block ...
Earlier in the week, I was also able to manage doing some sewing/stitching most days. I finished off my SKoW shoe block (stitchery & needle turn) ...
The needleturned hearts on the Red Book Bag stitchery ...
** I am using Sarah Fielke fabrics for this bag in her 'Pond' range, currently available at Spotlight. I have all the fabrics cut out for this bag now, ready to be put together; I just needed to get some Pellon yesterday, and I hope to have this finished and put together by the end of next week (I'm being realistic here, knowing how much uni I have to work on over the next few weeks!!)
And last night, I even managed to start working on one of the stitchery designs being shared by Wendy B & Dawn in their 'Seasons of" BOM. This pattern was shared here, and the following two here. The next one, I am expecting in the next few days *wink*.
|I slightly adapted the seat ... hope that's okay Wendy? xx|
So there you have it ... a roundup of my latest stitching sessions. Now to go get some cleaning/sorting/organising & uni assignments/work done. Enjoy your (Aussie) school holiday week!!
