It's a period when I have very little time for my hobbies. This is the reason why I don't post very often these days as I don't make much progress.
Nevertheless, I thought it would be nice to share with you what I have been doing lately.
When I came back from the Quiltmania quiltshow, I thought it was time to finish a project that only needed a few hours of work.
Do you know what this project is? Do you like the colonial knots stitched with an overdyed thread on the pouch handle? They were hard to stitch... but I really love the result!
I also love the fact that there are two different fabrics covering the zipper.
It's a project by Yoko Saito that I started a while ago. I still need to quilt the two sides of the pouch and to sew them to the zipper gusset which is completely finished.
I am also (slowly) working on Yoko's basket. I started the project in class with Yoko Saito. I am now doing the appliqués on the last side of the basket and hope to do the embroideries today.
I really love this project and, at the same time, am a bit afraid at the challenging finishing of the basket. I'll go slowly as I want it to be neatly finished.
A second challenging finishing is waiting for me to have some time. Here again, I am waiting to have two complete days off ahead of me to start. Do you remember the online class with Jackie Du Plessis ? I had finished the stitching part last month. The basket and all finishing supplies arrived last week.
Well, I am really excited by such a beautiful design! Love it, love it, love it...
I wish you all a wonderful week and hope to be able to show you these projects finished soon.
