I have had another fun weekend in my sewing room, the days go way too fast though. During the week I was looking through my trunk that basically has stuff in it that I'm not using . I was looking for some threads when I found these jar cover cross stitch pieces that I made at least 10 years. I used to stitch all the time until I discovered quilting then I slowly lost interest.
As these were all finished and just needed making up I have decided I must do just that. So now I'm deciding how I'll make them.
They are so sweet and as I just made lots of plum jam recently these will fit beautifully on my jars. I have dug into my Bonnie and Camille fabrics so they are sure to be pretty. This will be my job for this afternoon while the boys are watching the cricket.
I am a big fan of Instagram, if you are to you can find me at lizziethequilter. I joined a Liberty swap and my gifts are all ready to be wrapped. I had such fun making them.
I will show you everything properly as soon as my gifts are received. My partner doesn't know I'm making for her so I can share a little bit now.
I loved making these lavender bags, of course the lavender is from my Garden and smells beautiful.
Remember when I had heaps of plums and I was cooking with them lots, well now we have 3 buckets full of Granny smith apples so I'm looking for recipes to use them up, I have made apple crumble twice already this week, this morning I stewed a few so I can make muffins.
Any ideas on what else I can use the apples for? I'd love to read your ideas or recipes.
Have a wonderful week ahead and I hope you find some sewing time.
