I've been playing around today, just making a couple of small things that I've been meaning to do for ages....
...I made this sleeve for my camera strap, I got the idea from the Moda Bake Shop . I used some of my 2 1/2" squares in Martinique from 3 Sisters from my sample boxes. In hindsight, I should have used something else and cut it to the 5" size that the instructions stated. It fits fine but it was a pain to slide on to the strap, the extra wee bit would have made it easier!!
I even put my name on it, just in case I forget who I am !!
Do you wear reading glasses? Well I do and I'm always forgetting to put a case into my bag if I'm going out, so I end up wearing them on the top of my head all day. I made this simple little case to leave in my handbag, I have a feeling that I'm going to have to make at least 3 or 4 for different bags! I used some of the Bar Harbour squares for this, the colour isn't very true in this picture. The reds are really bright and clear with some soft blues mixed in, very pretty.
I picked this up from the post office today. It was my other purchase from those gorgeous 'Quilted Crow' girls, a lovely table runner in wool applique. It should look beautiful on the cedar table in the dining room, now I just have to make it!!
I had a fabulous time at Stitches & Craft on Saturday, I met up with Sue from Charlotte's Cottage in Western Australia, she was over with her hubby to celebrate their 40th Anniversary. It was wonderful meeting up for a coffee and a chat. I met a couple of local bloggers from Ballarat, Annie from Flower Garden and Jodie from Ric Rac. Jodie's stand was beautiful and I did succumb to a Pocket-Bot and a Parsley and Beet pattern as well as some of the amazing felt from Winterwood. So all in all a great day, Sew it Together is this weekend, I'm only going to the Saturday crafting session, but it should be a great day, I'm really looking forward to it.....lots more bloggers to meet!!
