I haven't actually been away, but life has been very busy of late. Not that I had forgotten my blog! I do have one admission, I can't find my camera, I put it in a "safe" place (ie where my children couldn't find it) and now I can't find it!
Firstly I traced the size I wanted onto tracing paper, then cut that out. Then I cut out the fabric. Then I followed the instructions (6 or 7 points at most) and sewed it up. It did come together really easily. I got slightly confused about the sleeves, but probably because I was being harassed by the elder child, Scooby Doo 2 not lasting forever and all! But it was incredibly straightforward. Anyway, as soon as I can find my camera I will post a pic here and on Flickr!
I did also do some papercutting (remember this post) and I really liked it.So I may well be making some more cards using this technique, for the ones I love! Again, will post pictures, funnily enough my husband bought me a laser cut heart card, so we were on the same lines!
My sister has asked me to make her a quilt for her birthday, a lap quilt in the coins style, in oranges, browns, reds, golds, touch of pink perhaps! She wants it to fit in with her lounge. Her husband likes the house cool, and my sister either shivers, or puts more layers on! Still their carbon footprint is kept down! I have till October to make that! But I thought I'd write it down to remind me.
My eldest turns 6 on Saturday. He didn't want a party so I'm taking him and a friend to a local Zoo and play park which should be good. I can't be bothered to make a highly decorated cake, I'm going for a chocolate sponge, chocolate frosting and decorated with chocolate buttons and maltesers for total chocolate indulgence!
