... a couple of things this week. Firstly, on Monday I finished making up the mug mat for Amy's netball coach. I packaged it up in the same way that I made up the one for my school friend a while ago. In stealth mode, I discovered that Bev's favourite colours are pink and purple, and had these strips already in my 1 1/2" scrap strips, and the binding was already in my 2" strips. How cute that the fabric in the centre square matches the mug so well, that was a happy accident!
The other fun thing I've been working on this week was at the Christmas gifts class. I made up a bag. We had the option of many projects, but I've never made a bag before, so decided it'd be best for me to try that while the teacher was around. Thank heavens I did, as I can quilt just fine, but I'm no seamstress!
I probably shouldn't have taken this picture on top of a different quilt, as it's made it hard to see the bag, and the bag is a bit rumply from being in my own bag, but you can get the idea. I now just have to sew the binding down on the right side, and attach the binding on the left side, and lastly secure the doilies so they don't flap around. I quite like the concept of this bag, it uses 2 1/2" strips, so I'll make another. I have so many 2 1/2" strips in my container, so it'll be good to put them to use.
Also this week, I started knitting a sock! I know, I've lost my mind, we're in the last month of Spring before heading into Summer. Even in Winter I don't wear socks a lot, but I have been fascinated by everyone's knitting and had to jump on the bandwagon. I think I may be hooked! Or should that be needled!! I'll show you some progress soon. I'm knitting with 4 ply sock wool, so it's slow going. Heading off now ... the sewing room is calling me ...
