A finish

I finally finished this quilt top. It is Hugs and Kisses from the park by Melissa Corry from Happy Quilting found at Moda Bakeshop. I would like to make it bigger but I did not have enough background and I used a black batik that I cannot get the exact colour again. It is 42 inches by 52 inches, not quite big enough for an adult. The batiks I used were called Pink Lemonade I think! A fat quarter bundle from the fat quarter shop purchased a while ago.

For the sewing room

I made a little fabric basket for threads using the tutorial by Rachel at PS I Quilt.
I also made a sewing mat for under my machine using the wonky star block tutorial by Janice from Better off Thread at Sew Mama Sew

Sometimes it is good to put things off

I finished this Kookaburra Stitchery by Saffron Craig ages ago but could not think a way to use it. I loved it and wanted it to be in something special. I chose the colours of the threads based on an aboriginal print I had so I knew I wanted to use that but not how to use it. Then I saw a tutorial on the birch fabrics blog for a cushion by Beth from Plum and June. It was for a cushion using a focus print but it was perfect for the stitchery. I love how it looks!
