There's been some sewing going on round here this week! This is a finished (and well-used) lap duvet using instructions from the Purl Bee. The quilting is very subtle ... too subtle to really see in this photo. It's been so useful as the weather doesn't really know what it's doing - our heating is off now but sometimes it's a bit chilly in the evening and this is perfect to snuggle under in front of the telly!
Three purses waiting for their frames! This is a Nicole Mallalieu pattern that I've used many times before. I always get to this point (when the sewing is done!) and everything grinds to a halt - I hate glueing the frames on and always need another pair of hands, so hopefully Andy will help out this weekend. There is no way I can wrangle a purse into the frame on my own without getting glue all over the fabric and that would be a shame, especially as I've used some of my favourite Japanese fabrics on two of these.
I've had some fabric deliveries this week and this rose fabric is my favourite of the new fabrics. I also got a new purse pattern and frame. Given how much I hate the gluing process, Andy was a bit bemused that I chose a frame with three bits to glue ... but I wasn't thinking about practicalities when I ordered it; I just liked it!!
I also ordered some clamshell purses (no sewing required, just lots of glue!) and a sashiko kit, so I've lots to keep me busy. And I've ordered a new book of bag patterns that should be here shortly ...
