Over the last couple of weeks I've been working on a custom order and now its on the way to Canada.
The lady wanted a teapot cozy and four matching placemats. I didn't have more of the fabrics she wanted, so I suggested some other fabrics that I had to purchase from the US. If she was willing to wait for the shipping time etc? Yes, no problem.
Fortunate the fabrics arrived in reasonable time (less than 3 weeks). Gorgeous country themed fabrics with roosters and plaids. Immediately I fell in love with these fabrics, which made it even more fun to create something.
The lady wanted me to use my creative skills (gasp!). The teapot cozy wasn't a big deal, easy to make.
The lady decided on four fabrics and wanted four different placemats.
Since the shape of the placemats are rather rectangular, I suggested a pocket for cutlery on the right side and a band for a napkin on the left side.
I had the idea in my head for some days before I drew it on paper. I know! I know! I could have done it in EQ7, but.....
Since the roosters are the focal points on two of the fabrics, I fussy cut to make them fit the best I could.
Love these colorful roosters! :)
When the placemats were done, I suggested I make matching lined napkins; one of each fabrics using the same backing as for the placemats.
I just love the country charm of these items. I hope the lady will love them as much as I loved making it all.
I've been working on a couple of UFO's...
A pair of whimsical dancing snowmen potholders
... and a teapot cozy! :)
I have a Christmas / winter table topper (UFO) that is not finished. It's ready to be quilted, but I'm not sure how to quilt it... Forgot to take a photo...
I made 'healthy' muffins a couple of days ago. Turned out very yummy. :)
