Learned how to make a fabric scraps bowl at FOQ,using soluble stabiliser and free motion stitching; first one came out a but wonky, creased and gothic, the colours of a bruise
Second attempt used matching thread and less material
Now, this bowl looks best displayed like a plate , with light shining through it; but if you put it on a plate stand, it sort of starts to sag down with gravity...it needs a wee support behind it to hold it up. Have to think on that one.
Finally, now I have retired from NHS job, needed to sort out my fabric ( GASP )
4 days later, and I am about 50% of the way through
Generated big bin bag of scraps I am never going to use, off for recycling: and one I need to use for scrap projects to keep its volume down!
Coasters and baubles I think
finished a quilt top for my friend Meilings wedding, off to Debbie's for basting tomorrow
Visited by mother today..she had bought this quilt from a charity shop in Cornwall for £6.50...it is 7' square . Methinks the charity shop does not know much about value of quilts! It looks as if its been done on a domestic machine to me, wow.
