Today was one of those days when I tied up lots of loose ends and finished several things. I also made this cute Runaround Bag - one of the Lazy Girl Designs.
I finally finished the binding on my two redwork cat stitcheries - I finished the first one ages ago. Of course, I spotted a problem as soon as I put them with the first one - that one had the binding on the bias, these are straight on! Well, they'll just have to do, I'm not re-doing them - it'll have to be one of those "Who can spot the deliberate mistake?" things.
Then I managed to finish the quillow for my niece, who will be 8 next week. It's a bit loud, but I expect she'll like it - and the backing is a lovely girly pink polka dot. The backing looks awfully wrinkled but it's not that bad really.
And finally, there's this cute chook - this one's for my father-in-law whose birthday is on Friday, but I'm definitely going to be making one for myself. Don't you just love the way he's sitting there with his legs crossed? And here's the birthday card I made.
It seems like an awful lot, but apart from the bag and the card the rest was just finishing off bits and bobs.
Sorry the pictures are a bit all over the place, but I'm experimenting with Picasa - it's quicker to load than Blogger, and you can click on the pictures to make them larger - so hopefully I will get the hang of it.
