I actually got stuff finished today, and I feel really good about it!
First thing this morning I finished the written instructions for my Sizzix project, (November 1st folks, November 1st), and got everything wrapped up and mailed. I also sent off a piece of fabric that Mrs Snooks was searching for; paying forward the love from the fabric that Fiona sent me last week.
Back home and I finished off my Mouthy Stitches tote and keyring.
Now I don't know about any others who have used fusible fleece on their outers, but I had to make my lining/reversible side slightly larger to allow the fabric to fit over the thicker side if it is turned inside out. It looks a little baggy inside, when it's empty, but I am hoping my partner will want to fill it!
I did a little 'window' embroidery on the 'inside' panels, but I am swinging from love to hate and back again, I hope my partner sides with the love!
The Empire State keyring is one of Aneela's Little Stitches embroideries, which I thought was a perfect match for the Velocity cityscape print.
I love love love doing these tiny embroideries.
After that, I cut and pieced my Brit Bee block for Susan, but that my dears I shall save until tomorrow.
There was a bit more hexie basting at ballet, and now I am going to play catch up on my emails and blogs, and get all cosy in front of the TV with a cup of tea and a couple of chocolate digestives! I know how to celebrate!
