That’s right. Only six more sleeps till our big adventure.
Today,on the sewing front, I should have been taking the hems up on these, ready to pack.
But it was much more fun to be sewing this.
Bec gave me some fabric scraps while we were at Nundle and I have made this lovely fresh table runner using a few spare layer cake fabrics. I don’t know what the range is. A couple of the fabrics, on their own, in a large piece, didn’t look that great, but in this mix they all work so well together. Thanks for the gift, Bec.
You may remember back here I was having some trouble with my quilting puckering. (I still haven’t finished it off – something to look forward to when I get back home in the depths of winter.) Well, Peg told me of a batting that is iron on, on both sides and kindly sent me a little sample to try. Thanks so much, Peg.
I was hoping for enough for a mug rug, but there was enough for this runner. I love it. It looks the same as cotton batting and is just a bit tacky on each side, not dotty like iron on pellon. What a joy it was to quilt without needing any pinning at all. I have some spray baste and I am guessing that the effect would be similar. I’ll have to give it a go.
Anyway, I suppose I’d better get back to those hems.
