Ooops, it already is a month since my last posting. But of course I wasn't lazy during these weeks. Two quilts have finally been finished and already given away. Again it now is the season for sewing classes and there I made this little Storm at Sea top. This time I didn't have any difficulties, due to the perfect ruler. However, I would never think of making a large quilt with this pattern!
In between I used the pastel charms from my stash. This will be a baby quilt too.
All the remaining tiny bits of fabric of the mentioned pastel quilt will probably make another little quilt too. Of course I 'll need some more fabric (from my stash!) for it. At the moment I'm putting the scraps away.....and again I've got a new UFO ;-) !
I didn't want to cut this fabric with all the animals. In order to use it, I just made a border and then stippled the inner part of this little children quilt.
I urgently had to have some pouches in stock. So I started to sew some. For the first time I used plasticized cotton fabric which in the beginning caused some problems. Quite often I had to stitch the same line twice as the stitches were irregular and skipped.
Das Binding dieser Topflappen ist meine heutige Sonntagnachmittagshandarbeit. Wenn sie fertig sind, reisen sie zu einer Tomatenexpertin als kleiner Weihnachtsgruss.....und ich kann mich wiederum meinen Babypullover für Afghanistan widmen (jetzt bin ich am achten Pullöverchen). Was eigentlich als PIF Ersatz gedacht war, hat sich zu einer Beschäftigung entwickelt, die mir viel Spass bereitet.
Today I am finishing the binding of the above potholders. They are a little Christmas gift and will soon go to a friend who is a tomatoe expert. In the evenings I continue to knit baby sweaters for Afghanistan. What was meant as a compensation for my PIF gift has become an activity which I enjoy very much.
