On my last post I wrote I wasn't in the mood for sewing but then a bag pattern came in for testing and I was thrilled to bits to be able to sew it. It's all very hush hush at the moment though, you won't be able to see it until June 2013. LOLLL
After that I quickly started making a pair of oven gloves for my friend who provided the fabric. It's so pretty don't you think.
I used the tutorial over at Skip To My Lou.
I made the cuff narrower on mine.
I made this Christmas tree about a couple of weeks ago. The pattern was given to me a friend but you can find a mini tutorial for a similar one over at Sweet Bee Buzzings.
Again this fabric was given to me by my friend who I made the oven gloves for. This is a dissappearing four patch block that I'm making into a quilted trash bag holder for her.
Now for the WARNING!!!!!!!!
Look at the next photo.
Yes I took a chunk off my finger with my rotary cutter that jumped the ruler and sliced away half of the side of my finger right up against the nail. LOLLLLL This isn't the first time. Actually it's the second. Funny thing is it took a while to register that the sound I thought was the fabric being cut was actually my finger. Then I saw the blood!!!! I quickly added pressure to hold it together and ran downstairs to put it under the tap hoping I could do a DIY job on it. LOLLLL After not being able to stop the bleeding I calmly waltzed into the lounge and announced that I needed to be taken to the all night emergency clinic.
Luckily because I had put pressure on it it stuck together and didn't need any stitches. The nurse cleaned it and put antibiotic cream on it and then bound it up. I have to change the bandage every other day and take and antibiotic capsule every 6 hours. So PLEASE lady's wear your gloves when cutting fabrics with your rotary cutter.
It's taken me forever to write this post with one finger out of order LOLLL and now it's starting to throb like crazy.
I had to laugh when I was watermarking my photos. Who on earth would want to claim the last one as theirs. LOLLL
