Having Louise at home yesterday gave me the perfect excuse to stitch away to my heart's content. She's better this morning which means that sadly I'll have to go in to work at 10.30 :o(
My SIL (brother's wife) loves fairies - she's never a problem to buy for as this is her main love plus she makes handmade cards so I can always get her supplies for that too.
I picked up some Christmas Flower Fairies fabric earlier in the year specifically with her in mind.
Here you can see it forming the centre of these stars. The corner squares are a different fabric than the geese as I only had a FQ of the geese fabric but I think it looks ok.
Once I've got 8 of them completed they'll go together in a long line to make a long Christmas table runner - the type that goes the full length of the table and hangs down over each end. The burgundy fabric they're sitting on will form the sashing. I shall probably put an applique block in the middle with holly leaves and berries on a cream background and maybe even similar applique triangles at each end to make it finish in a 'V' shape.
Talking to my sister last night and gleaning the fact that my niece loves Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh gave me the idea of making her a quillow with an Eeyore on the front of the cushion. I've never made a quillow before but have some printed off instructions somewhere so I guess I'd better dig them out and give them a good read.
I know I'm a quick worker but I shall have my work cut out completing all the things I want to finish before Christmas - no pressure then!
