It is miserably cold. Snow and sleet this morning (but not enough to settle, so no chance of getting the day off work 🙁 ), and an icy cold wind. Now it’s just raining and cold and horrible. We’re all sitting here in the office (yes, I’m being naughty and writing this at work, but it is technically my tea break!) bundled up in scarves and gloves because there’s a nasty draft blowing in under the door.
So, time for some pretty colours to cheer things up (or maybe it’s just because I was looking through Flickr for something and came across the photos I’d taken of my latest sewing project, and realised I never actually did write the blog post to go with them…)
Work in progress (sorry for the terrible lighting – it was very late at night):
The finished product:
The binding around the edge is a bit rough (I really should go and read a book (or at least a website) about quilting instead of just trying to make it up as I go along!), but I’m pretty pleased with the design (which I adapted from this one).
In case you can’t tell, it’s supposed to be a placemat 🙂
