As the title suggests its a slow slog. I am quite disappointed at myself that the quilt went awry. I think I should have starched the sashing so it was a firmer fabric instead of being quite thin and floppy. I also had enough backing (sheet) fabric so why did I cut it to short not only that but strangly a square was also cut out (not sure how that happened) so had to patch it up. That wasn't the end tho.....there is some cobbled as well.... sigh. Still I bet you wouldn't have noticed if I didn't point it all out haha.
Still whilst that is on one side for the moment, this is an update on the shopping bag.
And here is a closer view. The orange is felt attached to the blue material with a buttonhole stitch, a little blue seed bead added. Then with 3 strands of bright blue embroidery thread I buttonholed over the top of the blue material and it's given it a raised effect. There needs to be a bit more greenery to balance it all out, and then it might get stitched together.
And as one project is nearly finished another 6 start up!! Here is one of them, more bits of wood from the wood pile!
Once again I'm linking up with handmade Monday
