Sweet scrappy projects
Another finish for my Project Linus pile and a little more out of the scrap drawers! Almost completed in March.....but I'm happy to have finished it now!
Once I'd hit on my size and shape (I've decided on a wall hanging for above where a new sofa bed will go once the building work is complete) it was straightforward to decide on a layout for the existing strips. I just needed one more strip to complete it. So, by next week I hope to have completed the top, basted it, and perhaps even to have started quilting it. A girl can hope!
My other sewing project this week has been to make these 'anti-ouch pouches' - underarm cushions with a strap to hold them in place. If you know someone who undergoes breast cancer surgery please think about making one or two of these for them. They are fast to make (about 30 minutes including stuffing and finishing, I should think) and can make people much more comfortable.
I'm sending lots of good wishes and hopes for a speedy recovery to my cousin Jilly.
