Well, I'm going to try my first bit of applique and patchwork. As I've never done this before - well, save for an awful attempt which I won't even go into - does anyone fancy joining me, so we can do it together? I thought it would be fun to make it together. And yes, I really haven't got time for this either. lol.
I've chosen a cute heart applique cushion from a book I've just found in the library called Cornucopia of Cushions by Susie Johns. Look - it's a good pattern, and looks straightforward, but it would be great if someone could join in, and we could do it bit by bit. Anyone up for it?
So, first off, you have to cut a heart template measuring 7 cm at its widest, and about 6 cm from the point to the dip in the middle at the top. Does that make sense? Then you have to cut 12 hearts...
Six in a patterned fabric and six in a plain fabric. I've not got enough plain fabric, so I've come to a halt. Anyone gonna catch up and join me? Let me know, post some piccies on your blog, and I'll tell you the next bit...
go on, please someone.
And BM, I am still attending to the 90 things out of one pillowcase challenge!
Now, I also haven't shown you all I got at Fred and Happy's sale. Lookee! More!
I showed you the wonderful tablecloth a while back. But look at the screen and the candle holder and the enamel pink jug and the knitting needles.
Um, and the table. I'll have to get a better shot of that!
