More Weekend Projects

The rest of the projects for the weekend included..

This Mini for swapping in the Mini Swap - not due until the end of June.  The theme for this was embroidery/words.  I used an old doily.

Close up....

Block 2 of Anni Down's A Christmas Story.  My design wall may just be renamed my "Anni Wall" lately with a couple of her projects on the go....

Very necessary....these shelves came into the sewing room in the last re-organisation.  They need custome drawers or baskets and because of the sizing I wasn't going to waste time trying to find some that where the right height and depth so I had planned to make some...

First one (the fabric was left over from covering the chair so it matches beautifully)

Then there were two....

I have enough of the sewing themed fabric to make two more and then may do a couple in just some curtain fabric I have around that will co-ordinate.

No photos - but I did also manage to prep some dresden blades for the next block of Gossip in the Garden and do a little bit more applique on the next block of A Christmas Story.

Yes there were TWO things I didn't get to on my list....I put them off because they are new starts....but there is always next time!
