in between

In between lot's of family visits I have been squeezing in a little time for these projects..

Some vintage sheeting squares for a doona cover project

My kind husband bought me these and they have now been filled with various quince jams and green tomato pickles.

I am thinking cushions with these new fabrics bought here and here.
Quite liking my new scissors.

And, of course, no long weekend would be complete with out a little reading material. Enjoying the latest copy of Frankie.

Hope you are all enjoying your long weekend.

I desperately need to sharpen both of my pairs of scissors, so am incredibly envious of your new pair. Love the fabric and I think you need a rotary cutter, ruler and mat. You'd knock through those squares in no time!

I second Little Bettys comment, if only because I've finally convinced myself I need them too haha :) x

HAPPY EASTER and HAPPY STITCHING! The new cover will be fantastic! I would mention that you might want to keep a lookout for a rotary cutter, mat and a ruler or two in the future if you plan to do a lot of piecework (quilt) projects; it would save you a ton of time as you can cut 4 layers at once. I adore mine. Here is a video I found on Rotary cutting basics...
