I decided to get some preparations for the projects that I need to finish for March. I started with preparing my stitchery for my SKOW pin cushion as part of SAL 2013 run by Chookyblue. Well the first stitchery I traced ended up in the bin as being in a bit of rush, I decided not to tape it down to save time and the design ended up crooked on the fabric. So I cut a second piece and luckily this time it turned out just fine as I took a bit more care, so then I looked through my stash for the fabric I would use. Decided on an old range called Cornucopia. I will have enough of that fabric to make the sewing bag and needle case which will be made later in the year. I already have a mug bag in this fabric so it will make a nice set to take to workshops when I get them all finished.
I also cut out and traced a stitchery that is for a secret project so only a sneak peek of that.
Saturday morning, we were on our way to Toowoomba bright and early. Luckily Chris drove me up as it rained non stop all the way there, all day and on the way back. We arrived at our destination right on time and I was able to join my friends Cheryl and Lynda who had just arrived also.
