More importantly.....I needed to FINISH something! I have WIP's in every corner of my home. I'm a Creative Butterfly, never settling for too long on something....always looking for the next flower! Whilst this is exciting, it can get a bit exhausting....sometimes you just need to settle somewhere, finish what you started, don't you think?!
Now, shall I make another cushion? Bag perhaps?
Out came the rotary cutter ( I don't break out in a sweat at the sight of it anymore!) chop, chop.....beautiful sheets, making my heart skip a beat!
Slowly but surely my new blanket emerged! Clarice still has tension issues, so don't look too closely, the stitches aren't the best!
Happy, happy, happy......
I've backed her in this lovely yellow sheet I picked up on Saturday, in fact I used a few new sheets.....I really must talk to you about my sheets, maybe next time!
She might go on my bed, but for now she can live in the conservatory, I'm going to snuggle under her.....it's a tad nippy her at the moment, I do hope that the beautiful weather we had at the Bank Holiday wasn't our summer!
There, another bit on my quest for a colourful, happy home!
The binding is truly awful.....I was getting a bit impatient to finish (that's the butterfly again!) so didn't measure, just used, well guess work, not a good idea!
I might stitch around the edge with some embroidery thread....then again I might not....I might make it look worse! Oh well, I like it and that's all that matters really, isn't it!
I will show you my other treasures, I've not forgotten just got swept up in a sea of vintage sheets, as you do!
I've added some bigger bits in my Esty shop, some 1/2 yard pieces of the sheets below, if anyone's interested!
Thanks, as always for you lovely, funny, supportive comments. I usually respond to any questions back here on my blog, I just find it easier that way. I hope you don't think I'm rude if I don't email you back...it just seems to take me ages that way!
I'm off now, need to put Clarice to bed, and clear up no end of threads, it looks like there's been an explosion in a vintage sheet factory here.....how lovely!!!
Until next time!
