Today is the first day back to work/uni/school for us after 2 weeks school term break. I go back tomorrow. As I have some time here today without the family I hope to get to play with some stamps and ink. Don’t get me wrong I do like the school holidays, this time round it was a little more all over the place than usual. Between dentist appointments, check ups, test driving a new car (we haven’t bought one yet!) and other bits and bobs we didn’t even fit in one trip to the zoo. Very unusual. And not a huge amount of constructive crafty time for me.
I did participate in my first ever blog hop. Welcome to my new followers.
I will share a few things though
The 2.5″ stripes of re-purposed shirts have been made into this
As you can see I used the sleeves leaving the buttons on. This quilt when it is finished wont be suitable for young children. At this point I am not sure what I will do with the finished shirt quilts. I haven’t decided on backing or binding yet either. I still have to cut into the shirt fronts with pockets to. Perhaps I should use the pocketed fronts for the backing? Any thoughts?
This is a pic of the other re-purposed shirt quilt top I shared here no further progress on this yet.
I had a little time waiting for appointments during the school term break so I got back onto my Step Hem Jumper from Patons Women’s Merino Collection using Bendigo Milky fibre from here. Not a lot of progress but a start on the sleeves.
The back and front so far…
Netball starts back again this weekend. I think I will need this as the girls play outside.
Well I didn’t think I had much to share but it seems I did. Sorry for the long picture heavy post. Hopefully I will be back in a day or two with some inky creations.
Until next time
