Excuse the dodgy pics the light is not great. The linen is not as dark as this.
I have been procrastinating on what to make for the extra in the framed purse swap. I thought my partner might like a little pin cushion. I opted for a spot of linen and text with a few 1/2" hexies made from Liberty scraps. It's the sort of thing I'd like myself. I've come to the conclusion it's best to make stuff you'd love yourself. For one if my partner hates it I get to keep it and two, it's more enjoyable that way and I think I make better if I'm using fabrics I love.
The text fabric is new. I had a good mail day as this was amongst the bills today.
Texty fabrics and other treasures.
It's felt like a while since I've had a good mail day. All these came from Sew Me A Song. They'll be ideal for my low volume quilt. I didn't buy them for this though. I bought them to feed my texty fabric addiction! I got the lined fabric because I've always coveted the Cosmo Cricket lined fabric which I've only ever had already used in items I've received in swaps.
Last night I made another Low Volume block using up another Farmers Wife block.
It's not this wonky it's just on a chair cushion that I didn't plump up first!
I'm not sure what block I'll make next, but I'm sure some of that new fabric will figure in. I have the first completely free weekend in what feels like forever and as the forecast is rain and flood I may stay in all weekend and sew up a storm.
