Time for sewing

It is lovely to have some time off work. Catching up with friends and of course some sewing and gardening!!

Spotted these bargain packs at Ballarat Patchwork and just had to get them. I have never sewn with Chenille before, so thought I would have a go since I am on holidays.

I rushed home with them and started - what a mess when I started cutting!!

A lovely quick and easy pattern, I have enjoyed working on it!

One pack down, one to go. I have decided to sew the two together to make a nice snuggle rug for the couch. Hopefully I will get back to it tomorrow.

Thankyou for the lovely cupcake Annie. It is sitting on my sewing table!!!

HI Janette. Sorry that I did not get to your place Thursday night. There was a concert with the Melbourne Chamber Group on at school. Have you done any more New York Beauties?
