To celebrate, I made a 'procrastination pie' and a 'procrastination pot holder'! It is also Jax's 7th Birthday - so HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my four-legged-friend!
|I wish I had machined the binding onto the scrappy side so my hand stitches |
would have been on the linen 'back' side. Oh well - I now know for next time!
I made my Zakka Patchwork Potholder in red fabrics (some scraps I had of plaid, homespun and paisley) to help celebrate the day. It took very little time to put together - with the picking of fabrics being the longest part! I am addicted to making potholders!!
I was going to make a sponge cake and put whipped cream and strawberries on it for the red and white theme but we ate the strawberries late last night - oops! I had loads of apples in the fridge so I made a pie instead. Still yummy :)
I ran out of Kona Ash last night so I did not complete the binding for my Green-Grey-Teal-Turquoise quilt so I am off out now to try and get some - on a Sunday. Wish me luck!
I'm linking to LR Stitched Zakka Style Sew Along (fingers crossed for me this week!!) and Fabric Tuesday over at Quilt Story.
Happy Canada Day!
