I should not talk about missing days, but that is what I felt at the end of the week; I was so sure it was Wednesday when it actually was Friday! Scary! Where did the two days go?? Well, perhaps not so strange since I have been very busy with items to the Fair.
Do you remember 'All that metallic'? It's done! :)
The trees and stars are machine appliquéd by using buttonhole stitches.
The star in the center...
... and as some of you suggested; I've quilted stars. :) I'm very happy with the stars, turned out better than I had expected! :)
I decided to make a table topper too...
Close-up of the center. Don't know why the color on the background fabric changed that much... It's something in between those two photos. Buttonhole appliqué here too.
... and quilted stars...
I think the fabric is so pretty, if it had not been for that terrible metallic. :) I have only left quite a lot of the cream poinsettia fabric.. I think I will keep it for possible appliqué.
The binding is finally added to the 'Snowman Gatherings' table runner
A pair of placemats. I had the background fabric sitting here for a couple of years and didn't know what to make out of it. One of those early-morning-wake-ups I got the idea to use my gingerbread cookie cutters as the pattern and dress up the gingerbread man & woman! This is how they turned out! :)
Close-up of the gingerbread man. Buttonholes stitches (machine), added rick-rack, and sequins for the eyes.
The gingerbread woman
These are only a few of the finished items I have made for the Fair.
More photos to come! :)
