..a few new sewn odds and bobs...

Hi! I've really got no time to write anything today! I'm working on a deadline at home and getting ready for a weekend away at relatives who live a couple hours away...So here are a few pics -- odds and ends I have had lots of fun making recently...

A wonky patchwork potholder for my gourmet chef-ish husband.




Turned out a bit bulbous...it's got an old towel as the liner. I read about that somewhere...



And a doll quilt for my daughter.



This was so fast to make, it was a very satisfying exercise.



Again, I used unusual "batting". It is babysoft polyester fleece I had lying around. Makes it quite soft and yummy, actually. I know cotton is better for you. But, you know, I had the stuff on hand...




These photos look okay when I adjust them in "iphoto" but then they look like crap when I post them. I should probably start using Photoshop or something.

Anyway, have a great autumn/spring weekend (depending on where you are). Take it easy, like bunny here.



His secret is that his bum has a burn mark from when I was a new mother, placed him on a lamp, for some odd reason. I must have been totally sleep-deprived. He is scarred but cheerful. Forgive and forget, is his motto.
