I gave myself a rest recently from Facebook due to a feeling quite tired due to a chest infection and deciding I needed to catch up on some sleep and early nights…although I did go to bed much earlier than I normally would do, just look what I have achieved in getting done…woohoo. Mind you I feel I have been away long enough now and should go back. Hope I can remember my password now…
This was a challenge on the FMQ site, we had to make something like Easter Eggs, I chose to make some ‘Pods’ and hung them from the bush at the bottom of the garden…. you hold the top and bottom of the ‘pods’ then…. very gently squeeze, they pop open and you can place a small gift inside or a very large cheque!!!! hahahaha This is my challenge on the Craftsy class I am doing with Angela Walters, I made the whole thing as to buy the panel was fairly expensive and would have taken ages to arrive – that’s my excuse anyway – I have started to quilt it now…. following are close-ups of the squares I have quilted so far…. this is the back of it…. I saw this being taught somewhere on the net, I can’t remember where now, but it stuck in my mind so I gave it a go and called it Curvaceous Curves – I loved the freedom of doing this, no templates, just the fabric and a rotary cutter and off you went, great fun…. close-ups the quilting I did – not a straight line anywhere to keep up the curves theme…. and this is the back…. This is my first January Doodle I did with the classes on FMQ with Christine, sadly I didn’t buy enough of the cream fabric and when I went back they had sold it all, soooo I bought a load of white fabric, and just started again – like you do…. this is my Kandi Kane I use to attach the Hot fix crystals…. here we are then, this time in white, it needs painting as do the others, I will do them another time… February Doodle…March Doodle….
There we are then, you can see I have not been lazy, even though I haven’t been on Facebook. I did do some other stuff but felt this was enough for one post!!!! Enjoy.
