I've been working on many little things the last couple of weeks. I can't believe how far behind I am in posting these little projects, I have quite a few pictures to show today. I made a couple of cellphone cases for my daughter and her friend. Pretty simple to make and they come together quickly. I thought they would be fun accessory for the summer. My daughter invited me to tea and scones on Sat, we went to this place that serves tea in real tea cups. It was fun, none of the cups or plates matched and the place was all decorated just like being at Grandma's house, with gingham table cloths and if you were really in the mood, there were fancy hats for everyone.
I finished hubbies socks, no I didn't just whip this up. I started them in Jan and have been working on them very slowly. It's good to have them finally done. He loves them.
Have you ever seen such a small Dresden plate? There are 12 petals in this tiny thing. I found this book and had to give the little piecing a try. Galloping Pony web site also offers tips and tricks to making such teeny tiny piecing. These are NOT paper pieced. And yes the seam is 1/4". She has a fun little story about how the Galloping Pony came about. "The galloping horse theory says if you can’t see a mistake in a quilt from a galloping horse it really doesn’t matter". Isn't that a hoot!
The finished size of the 16 patch is 2". I think this might go in a frame for hanging on the wall. The finished size of the whole quilt is 8"x6".
Galloping Pony does collage style with tiny blocks. Here's my version of a collage. The churn dash blocks are 2" finished as well.
I promised some progress on my little sewing case. Here is the outside all stitched up with zipper and gusset set in. We've only been working on this case as a group once a month, so that's the reason it's not finished yet.
The handle is very small, this might get replaced with something a little bigger.
A view of the front and back with the case open.
Inside of case with raw edges showing. These will be covered and part of the centre zipper area will be cover as well.
I haven't finished the inside yet but I thought I would show this in progress anyway. I've covered the raw edges and started making the pocket. There will be thread holders, scissor holder and a holder for a small ruler. So that's it, all the LITTLE things I've been working on. Did I say little enough times....LOL
