The fabric in the first pic has been in my stash for years and I decided it was no use
to anyone while it was in the cupboard. I cannot remember why I bought it in the first place - probably because it was a bargain.
My eldest daughter gave me some of her stash recently. I know, it was just what I needed - more fabrics. Anyway there was a large piece of high quality polar fleece. Unfortunately it was a very dull colour, like the colour of milky coffee but as you can see in the second pic it matches the cotton fabric perfectly. Once I saw the two fabrics together I just new I had to make a couple of cot covers for the twins. They are very light weight but nice and cosy too.So the stash is a little thinner.
This gorgeous embroidered satin fabric was also in the bag. When Meaghan bought it she intended to make a cushion so today I made it for her. It is appropriate to make it now as it is the beginning of the year of the dragon.
These pieces are from my own stash. I have decided to make a mini quilt or collage or small piece of crazy patchwork each month and have put a some fabrics and trims in zip lock bags for each month of the year. These ones are January.
I have just a few days to complete it before the end of the month.
The cricket will be on the TV tomorrow - it is the Australia Day Holiday - so I will have time to do some stitching.
I hope everyone is having a terrific week.
