I’m not naturally full of great ideas. I love to look at other peoples work and find it fascinating where their ideas came from.
I sat in my room yesterday with all my ‘stuff’ out trying to think what to make. The best I came up with was these key rings. The idea was for them to look rustic, I’m unsure if the just look ‘tatty’?
I then sat there going through my fabrics and decided to embark on another quilt, which it haven’t finished yet, but here is how far I’ve got. I’m working on the same idea as my cat quilt, but with different fabrics. I think the cute animal squares are great. I intend on adding some other appliqués to it to jazz it up..awaiting great idea!
I have no idea what to do with it when I’ve finished it though. I’m sure it’ll find a home somewhere.
I’m in between projects and unsure of my next move so I pulled out my patchwork quilt. I have been hand sewing the squares so far but now that my sewing machine is up and running I have used it this evening. I am so impressed with how much faster the whole thing is. I flew through 4 rows in next to no time.
Im not sure what the correct method is or even if there is one. I’m just happily sewing my squares together. I’m not sure how big to make it either. I suppose I will know when to stop!
Once again my lovely kitties thought it would be nice to help. They love laying all over my material and giving me a helping hand! Little imps !
I managed quite a lot of sewing last night of my patchwork quilt. I am stopped in my tracks today as I need to cut some more squares. I am using 5″ squares and don’t really know how big to make the whole thing? I keep placing it on my bed to compare the size.
I will but a boarder on it too.
Now I have finished my doorstop, I’m twitching to move onto something else….
i am once again desperately searching through magazines and the Internet looking for inspiration. Until I find my next big thing, I think I’ll get back to the patchwork quilt project….
‘A labour of love’
Woohooo!! After another evening of tangled wool and a few choice words, I have successfully created two crochet squares! (I say patting my own back)
now I know that the more experienced crocheter will see the flaws but to me, they are just great! I found a really simple step by step guide online, with pictures. I intend to keep practicing with different square variations and hopefully end up with something.
This is now my second WIP with my patchwork quilt being the other one.
I am really enjoying my love of crafts and these little projects that I keep finding. I hope to keep progressing through various makes and create some wonderful things.
Right now, these squares will become either a blanket or a pillow.
