My only finish for this month is the above tablecloth. It took me longer than I expected to make, since I did frayed edges. I should have taken a photo of all huge ball of threads that I pulled out! The tablecloth got smaller and smaller… thankfully I started big enough 🙂 I bought the fabric at Spotlight for $3 a meter, and I am quite pleased with the end result.
Other than that, I have been working on Daniel’s snowball quilt. It is soooooo close to being ready, but I know it isn’t going to be done this month! We just had too many other things on, like Matt’s birthday….. and then a week later Elizabeth’s birthday….
Matthew, my baby, turned 11! Unreal! He requested breakfast in bed, so here he is, fully dressed, having Milo, scrambled eggs and toast, and that is a leftover donut on the right just in case he was still hungry!
Elizabeth turned 13, and is growing up to be quite a young lady. She got to sit in my chair with her feet up to open her pressies 🙂 She got spoiled by Alice with lots of crafty things, and some fabric from us as well:
And now it is school holidays for two weeks. I think we are all ready for it. I plan to visit my parents, sew a bit, and try to organize the boys’ room. The latter is well overdue! I’m sure there are many bits and pieces of toys and stuff that they have outgrown. I haven’t done a big sort out for ages, so I want to try to do that. Hopefully I’ll pop back in over the next fortnight with some sewing updates!
