So what did I get done?

Not everything on the list that's for sure!

But...........

I made 3 wallets! (Ok, so I had already cut all the pieces out the other day - but that's still good isn't it?) Two are for a friend who is taking them with her on holiday to Australia as gifts - so they have come from Australia originally via Melly and Me, have been made here in the UK with Japanese fabric (with a Russian doll theme in places) and are going back to Australia again! The second Russian doll wallet will be going into my Etsy shop soon.

I finished the "dog" cushion
An order from another friend.
I just need to get a larger cushion inner for it.

Top stitched some of the animal blanket - more to do today! I haven't finished putting the blanket together yet - it's easier to do the top stitching first.

And finished the stitchery on the elephant cushion but did none of the patchwork.

So I got a lot done - but not all. I've got some extra time though because Dot is off school so I can't go to help in the infant's this morning. We are going to watch Grease and I will sew, sew, sew - wish I could sleep instead!

For Ally:

You'd thump me if I made you a cushion like that!

Remember

"I'm smiling because your my sister. I'm laughing coz you can't do anything about it!"

Much more your style! Lucy xxxx

Patti said...

I am well impressed with the amount you got done.

good for you.

ps my sisters would agree with the sentiment in your comment to Ally rather than the beautifully stitched one too.

Thimbleanna said...

Congratulations -- you got a great deal done this weekend!!!

Jane said...

Wow! your stitching is beautiful and hope Dot is better soon. In reply to your comment on my blog Yes Ikea is darned evil/clever at making us part with our cash. we always seem to spend approx £100 I think they are just to good at selling things we like/want.

You really worked hard and accomplished a great deal. Your projects are lovely.

Watching 'Grease' and stitching sounds like lots of fun. I'm about to watch Monday Night Football with my husband and read my new Threads magazine. I get squirmy if I just watch.
Halloween Hugs,
