And another two
I've been lazy, and believe it or not still haven't stitched the charms onto the Doubleflips. Somehow it just seems to close to sewing or finishing, so it's just fallen to the wayside. My goal this week is to get the charms on so I can get it in for framing. With only 12 little charms, I really have no excuse.
Now onto the finishes. My first finish was another cat mat for the shelter, this one in blue. The requested size is 20x28. I wasn't paying close enough attention, and it actually came out 20x30, a little larger than planned, but guess they can use it for a cat that is a little larger. :) I also got a little off at the one side, so it isn't as straight and even as I'd like. However, I don't think a kitty will be counting my rows, and with a cute furry cat laying in their cage snuggled on it, hopefully it won't be too noticeable that it is off to anyone else either.
Lynn is who got me started on these, as she makes quite a few, as well as other items for charity. I'm not up to the other items like hats, mittens, and such that she can do, but figured the cat mats were a safe project. I'm so glad I gave them a go, they are so relaxing to work on.
My next finish was Jinx one of the MoonRider series by Just Nan. Kim got me this a design a while ago, and I figured the size would be a perfect quick finish. She also got me the frame, so now all I have to do is pop it together and I'll have a fun one to set out for this Halloween. The pattern came with three designs. Aren't they cute? They finish up at 2x2, so are quite small. I had some small scrap fabric on hand of 32 ct. Belfast which was large enough to do two of these on. I've completed Jinx, and am now trying to decide which of the other two to do. At the moment I'm leaning towards the Ghost, but Jack the pumpkin is cute too. Well I'm off now to catch up on what all everyone else has had going on since last weekend. Cold and rainy here today, so a good day to stay inside. Hope you're all enjoying the weekend.
