I bought some pink fabric to add borders to Mia's quilt.
I appropriated some of that pink fabric to make donkeys, that now have eyes and have been stuffed, but I'm puzzling how to add the ears without them looking odd.
I have also been thinking... This is always dangerous. And expensive.
I'd like to do some Christmas gifts. My two little nieces are hopefully coming to visit at Christmas and I'd really like to make something for them both. Now obviously I'm thinking quilts, but I was thinking, what do little girls really like? Something fun! Something they don't already have. Something they can do, not just have. I love to buy kids books, but that's not fun (for them, for me it's a joy forever). And then it occurred to me, that one of my favourite things to do as a little person was dress up. So maybe I could make fairy costumes for the girls!! Think bright, sparkly, floaty skirts and wings with lots and lots of glitter. I can do that! And the girls are 5 and 7 - they'll still be into dress ups, right?
What else is WIP-y???
Well I still have my owl quilt sitting on a chair waiting for me to baste.
I also have Lashings of Positivity waiting for basting - I have a backing fabric, but now that it's not for Nadia, I don't know if it's the right choice.
I have a pink monstrosity that has a few lines of quilting and then it was abandoned. Even looking at it makes it feel like a chore and I want this sewing malarky to be fun! I will finish minky, Mia and then hit this I think. I really don't want to, but it WILL be done!
Ok. So has anyone else got any interesting WIPs?
You should post them and link to Freshly Pieced...
