Last weekend was the first in a while that I didn’t have to be anywhere (other than 4 hours to do my Commonwealth Games initial orientation on Saturday), and I wasn’t ill. It was quite disconcerting, but really rather nice! Of course in a fit of forgetfulness I’ve managed to book myself two places to be this Friday night, about 10 miles apart, but let’s not split hairs ;o) Anyway, I finished a wee bear last week, finished re-quilting the rainbow on Saturday (and am about 2/3 of the way through end burying hell now), and started a new project on Sunday, finally playing about with some of the handprinted fabric scrap packs I’ve been hoarding over the last couple of years. This weekend might be even more productive (Friday night aside), who knows!
Finishes This Week:
Meet Lockheart (as named by Lucy), started over 2 years ago, and left with just his ears to attach and his stuffing seams to close until last week – oops! I can now get over the guilt complex from the reproachful look I kept getting from his perch in his bag…
In Progress This Week:
It’s nearly done, honest!
And these panels, which will become part of a bag (apologies for the IG pics). Fabrics from Blueberry Park, Umbrella Prints and Lucie Summers.
To Be Worked On This Week:
I will finish the rainbow. I will. I will. Although I’m getting a touch of RSI from the thread burying!
I have a teeny bit of secret sewing to do
Then I might get back to the QAYG panels
I also got a new commission…
Linking up, as ever, to:
love those panels for the bags. And that rainbow stack, just gorgeous!!!
Those panels look great! And hurray for the bear finish- he looks really cute! I'm honestly amazed at how much you get done. I can't wait to see the rainbow- perhaps March 17th? With a pot of gold at the end 😉
Yay! You stuck with Lockhart. Perfect!
The perfect name for a very handsome bear . He looks pleased to be finished and finally have an identity.
The panels look cute ..cant wait to see the resultant bag.
And the rainbow is almost finished? Really?
Lockheart is the perfect name!! It wouldn't be wednesday if you didn't show your stack of rainbow fabrics. Love your bag panels!!
Those panels are going to make a pretty bag!
Still with the rainbow pile?? I don't believe you have touched those fabrics!
Can't wait to see what you did with that rainbow stack!! I hope Celtic Thistle is wrong and you really have been working on something 😉 lol
Your bag panels look amazing – all of the prints go so well together!
Lockheart is the perfect name. That stack of rainbow solids? *sigh* The end.
A new commission? Nice work 🙂
Lockheart is a cutie! Your IG pics are great. Love the bag panels too!
Yay! Have a great weekend once you've unstressed frm Friday!
I say, if your can't clone yourself by Friday send a bear in your place! Lockheart is so so cute!
Lockheart is precious.
Thank you :o)
Oh how I adore your bears! Lockheart is so cute! 🙂
So we're going to see the rainbow project soon? I must admit that I'm starting to wonder if it really exists ;o)
Glad to hear you're feeling better. And that the rainbow horror is close to being done. Looking foraward to seeing what it is
