(in between writing 'end-of-year' reports!)
This is my Candle Mat for the Swap organised by The Quilting Gallery.
It was pretty easy to make - I just needed to finish the binding,
and add the yo-yos!
Kinda pretty, don't you think?
The red and white braid came from Paris.
It is heading off to its new home in the morning!
This is the embroidery I worked on while on New Zealand.
I think it will be added to the embroideries I received as part of the "Embroider-Bee"!
I will use fabric from my extensive stash of red and aqua!
That will be one of my next jobs on the 'to-do' list!
And my latest mug rug-
The color is a little washed out- probably should have waited til morning before taking my photos.
Here's a close up I took yesterday before I did the quilting- and the colors are much more 'true'!
The back is pretty cute-
One of my favorite things- bicycles!
(I know from my partner's Flick'r profile that she like bikes too!)
And can you read this?
Hey good lookin', what you got cookin?
I was pretty pleased how this turned out!
I hope my partner likes it - I certainly loved making it!
What have you been up to over the weekend?
Have a great week!
