WIP Wednesday

1 Oct

I’m making an attempt to share more in progress projects rather than just finished items.

This week I have 2 things on my sewing table (ok that’s not true there is a lot of stuff on there at the moment but I think you know what I mean). The first needs to be finished before Sunday, that is the day that our lovely boy turns 5 and it will one of the gifts for his birthday. We’ve got an action packed day planned and I’m hoping that this will be a cushion cover for him to rest his head on at the end of a busy birthday:

Some of you may be shocked and amazed that I’ve done some embroidery but I have and really enjoyed it. I had some floss in my stash and all the other colours I managed to find at the car boot and charity shop so I’m pleased with that.

The other project is another cushion over, I spent the day at a friends yesterday chatting and stitching and managed to get this quilted.  I used her machine and took my walking foot but forgot to take my quilting guide bar (is that what’s it’s called?) so it has very organic/wonky stitching on it:

The pattern is by Jeliquilts from Issue 6 of Love Patchwork and Quilting, it’s a great paper pieced block (or 4) that came together fairly quickly.

Hopefully I’ll have 2 finishes to show before too long!
