我想那是一个非常不寻常的复活节。那时很多人,不管信仰如何,都喜欢和家人聚在一起,但今年不行。自从封锁开始以来,我们几乎没有离开过家,我们的大部分购物都是由我的姐夫和一个在莫里森工作的非常友好的邻居完成的。因此,今年没有大量的巧克力蛋漂浮在房子周围,但由于商业复活节彩蛋通常是大量的包装,而不是所有的巧克力,近年来,我试图为我的家人做一些东西除了或代替巧克力。以下是今年的一些作品!

I’ve made my mum quite a few cushions, but I realised that I hadn’t given my sister one. Last year I enjoyed a really fun weekend trip away to Oxfordshire with the Quilt Group ladies and we did some classes at村庄面料,其中一个是折叠拼凑的。我带了一些漂亮的蓝色和白色蜡染,我已经有很长一段时间了-我买了我的第一次旅行的棉被节!我知道我妹妹也很喜欢这些颜色。他们的工作非常好的折叠模式,我有很大的乐趣,挑剔的削减圆圈印刷的基石。该块完成在18 1/2英寸,完美的一个好尺寸的缓冲。再加上一点细节,我找到了我的sashiko用品,很快发现了为什么蜡染上的sashiko不被广泛推荐!但是我很喜欢在蓝调和黑色的衬托下,白色的针线看起来很清爽,所以我坚持了下来。

For the quilting, I decided to do some very simple walking-foot quilting so as not to distract from the clean, elegant look of the piecing, in blue and white cottons. The back and binding of the cushion was some pretty bird fabric that mum found for me, which suited the style of the cushion.

对妈妈来说,我决定做一个新的桌面是件好事;我刚开始做被子的时候给她做了一个圣诞节用的,但有点季节性。一个春天/复活节的肯定要到了!为此,我用了五种不同的莫达·奥姆布雷彩色纸屑印花,它们来自我藏匿的一个半码的包裹——一种白色/奶油色作为背景,一种金色、一种紫色、一种粉色和一种绿色。因为我们的餐桌是圆的,我决定再做一个六边形的顶饰——而且我很喜欢缝等边三角形!我开始切割和拼凑,但不确定它们是如何结合在一起的,最后切割了更多的条带,得到了一个像样的三角形,然后把所有的东西都洒在我的设计墙上,四处移动,直到形成一个图案。它在一个下午就组装好了。

我决定真的带着绗缝绗缝,各种各样的致密填料和花卉/叶子图案。虽然这不是一个大块,但它仍然花了很多时间来获得它绗缝 - 它仍然需要我惊讶的是,这种绗缝可以是多么精神上和身体上的愤怒!当然,我必须尝试并尽可能地秘密地做到这一点 - 当你在锁定与你想要礼物的人锁定时不容易!尽管如此,我真的很满意bob体育冠军全部出来,特别是大花。它看起来很棒的复活节午餐桌!

最后一件礼物是我给侄女尼娅做的。她需要一个袋子来装游泳,她喜欢美人鱼和贝壳,所以我用这些图案给她做了一个可爱的小手提袋。互联网提供了一个很好的扇贝壳,但我找不到一个美人鱼的姿势,我的照片,所以我不得不画自己的-和人形不是我最喜欢的东西画!我很高兴这一切在最后是如何结合在一起的-足够我可能不得不玩美人鱼设计多一点!

I used a faux-punto effect under the shell to make it really puffy and dimensional, enhanced by fairly dense echoed paisley shapes quilted around it.

I am particularly proud of the magnetic tail fastening, the addition of some extra stabiliser really helps to keep the fin shape looking perky! Assembling all the disparate bits into a bag in the right order took a little bit of pondering and puzzling, but I picked my way carefully through it. To make it actually useful as a swim bag, it’s lined with some waterproof fabric left over from when I made a change mat for Nia before she was born! I am not sure when the local pools are likely to be open again, but I’m sure she’ll think of other things to carry in it until then.

I also made a quilted panel wall hanging for my little nephew Aled (who is too young for chocolate anyway, even without his dairy intolerance issues) and a cork fabric wash bag for my brother-in-law – and I failed to take photographs of either of them while they were still in my possession! I can certainly say that, for me, boredom over the last few weeks has NOT been an issue!

总有一天,我会的完全地我打算早点开始制作圣诞礼物并按时完成。然而,2014年圣诞节并没有打破我一贯的传统,即在平安夜/圣诞节的凌晨起床,疯狂地试图完成一些事情,而我没有完成任何事情,比如我想做的东西的数量。这也是课程的标准,也是我的“传统”真的喜欢放弃!

创意渗出#14 - 复活节礼物

What do you do when you’re house/dog-sitting for a fortnight? Spend it sewing, of course. I’d intended to make some progress on some of my many on-going projects, but ended up making the blue messenger bag as a birthday present for my cousin’s wife and a table runner for my aunt instead (which I only finished binding about half an hour before they got back from their holiday).

Creative Oozings #5 – Christmas Presents

Shortly before Christmas, Stefani proposed that we do a couple of smaller projects that could become Christmas presents. One was a pin board, another was a Christmas-themed fabric wreath. I ended up being a bit after the fact with the pin board and making it at home (because I’d got in a mix-up over which session we were doing it in), but managed to be in sync for the wreath (which was awkward because it was the week that pretty much all of us forgot to bring along cutting mats and rotary cutters!). Digging through my stash, I realised that I had a surprising amount of Christmassy fat quarters, though I’d bought a few more just in case. I like Christmas fabric a lot (it’s usually so sparkly!), but I also find it a real challenge in terms of design because it’s SO Christmassy. Anyway.
