Firstly, I decided I needed a few fabric baskets for the nursery, I practised the technique on a small one, but only got one done, but as they're so quick, others will follow shortly. I used this tutorial, very straightforward :o)
Secondly, I managed to tick off one of my FAL items, which was to make this Hexy Pouch. I started these hexies when I was at the Festival Of Quilts last year with Pin It And Stitch, with no particular use in mind, other than keeping me busy whilst I was there, and inbetween customers. I think they make for a lovely little travel bag, so I have popped in my hexy sewing basics, and these are all packed in my hospital bag for if/when I get a few minutes and need a bit of a distraction :o)
Filled with a mini sack of lentils in the middle for weight, and then offcuts of batting, she received it yesterday, and phoned me last night, absolutely delighted with it- lets hope she doesn't stab herself toooooo much with the pins!
And then just as I thought I was going to get some time to sew up some more FAL items, the curse of the wobbly teeth struck, and I needed to make a little Tooth Fairy pouch for the imminent loss of C's first teeth/tooth. Started on Sunday, the urgency ramped up on Tuesday when the first tooth exited. You'll be pleased to hear the Tooth Fairy was happy with the tooth, the pouch, and the note left, and there was a gold coin rewarded, phew!
