today was a good day! i got mail!! well actually a package, from super buzzy!!!!!
it seems like i waited forever for the clover yoyo makers to come out. superbuzzy now has them so now i have them. go get some for yourself before they are gone! superbuzzy ugh for some reason i am not able to upload photos right now so i guess i will try again later.(
lovely photo here)
daughter of course got a choco one, because she lives for chocolate. :)
i was able to finish two small patchworks this week for the arms of my loveseat. daughter has stained up my slipcovers so i wanted to hide the stains with something pretty. and then i remembered those weird things people used to have on their sofas.this was the first time ive ever done patchwork. i went and reread my denise schmidt quilts and so i was ok with the process, except for doing the binding. i didnt have any seam binding and was afraid to make some up so i wanted to do a whole piece binding that wraps around from the back. it turned out ok, but the mitered corners were a bugger! (
imagine photo here).
while i was reading onehourcraft i saw this cute tutorial for placemats and coasters. so of course i had to make some. i was a little surprised to find how small the placemat turned out, but it was still cute. i havent made the coasters yet, but i will because this was such a neat idea.
i probably wont explain it right, but you sew the two fabrics together, then slightly move the top layer over so it is askew by a couple inches. so there is mostly fabric a on one side, with a little b. and on the other side, mostly b fabric with a little a. totally confused now? it would probably just be easier for you to check out the directions
