My Weekend

Well it was a wet and windy weekend here, with odd moments of sunshine, luckily coinciding with this...


But after the domestics were taken care of, there was a little time for some stitichery.

Yesterday I made a start on my partner's name tag for FQ Retreat...



I have embroidered the name and blog-name of my secret partner under those there virtual buttons.  The liberty patchwork has ended up with 1/2" squares.

I am undecided on what colour/fabric to bind and make the lanyard in - yep it'll be a lanyard (again); I do not like pins, and I expect my partner to tow that line too!

Today after the duck race, I settled down and pieced all the crosses for the next border of my Marcelle Medallion...



And because there was a rather large bunch of bananas turning blacker by the minute, I made another Moshi Monsters 'nana bread - yeah, I am almost fooling the kids that I can cook!


So that was my weekend; hope you managed to cram some good stuff into yours too!

  13. What's incredible is that you can still really see the beautiful fabrics even though they are so teensy. Love the look of the cross blocks for the medallion :)

  16. I'm bloody loving that name tag and I reckon my name could be under it and the Liberty would match the bag I made for the retreat and I Bloody need a lanyard.

    Love the look of your other stitching and the cake...
