Yay!! I had a productive weekend. After getting my 4x6er's postcards done last week, I have now managed to finish off what I believe is my oldest UFO. I started these placemats at least 6 years ago after taking a Seminole piecing class. They languished until a few weeks ago when I pulled them out and quilted them, and now this weekend I finished the binding on them.
Then, as I just had a bit of the blue floral leftover, I pulled out a little stitchery I did last summer, and bordered it with it to make a matching little wall "plaque".
I think the two will go in my giving box so I have an easy housewarming type present available.
Yesterday morning I received an email from Victoria of Bumble Beans Inc and Say Cheese fame, asking how my self portrait was coming along - had I ever finished it? Well it was just the
kick in the butt gentle nudge I needed, and I'm happy to say that yesterday I bordered, quilted and almost finished binding the little bugger, and now I just have a little bit of the binding left to sew down, which I'm about to take out into the sunshine to finish off! Can I say "done!"?
Now to figure out what closet this is going to take up residence in!
Hope you had a happy productive weekend of sewing!
