Lately I've been working on some small pick up and put down pieces.
- Now that it's nearing Christmas, it's time for my sister and I to make our latest decorations from mmmcrafts, 12 Days of Christmas series. We have been doing this for the last three years, and make one of each for ourselves and each other. I'm doing the odd numbers and my sister does the even numbers. This means I get miniature people to make this round - drummers drumming and ladies dancing. They're a little fiddly, and face painting is definitely not my forte, but the finished result is pretty cool.
- I've also been making 1" hexis. My sister and I have sent each other lots of 2.5" scraps of fabrics we have used throughout the years on our own quilts. I keep a pile of fabrics and templates at work, which I make in my lunch break on the Saturdays I'm working, and I have some in a project bag at home for when I want some mindless stitching to do. No glue basting on these ones. I'm not sure what they will all end up as, maybe lots of scrappy hexi pillows, or perhaps I'll save them for that scrappy hexi quilt, I contemplated making two years ago. It's quite interesting to see the similar but differing tastes we have in colour and designers.
What small projects are you making at present?
