Cushion Love

If you following me on Instagram @laydilyke you may have seen this cushion I made.
I used the #chantillyfabric from Moda that I got in the @sewsamplerbox for the front
side.  Quilted it, added a few fancy stitches from my machine and finished the back with
a starred canvas type fabric.  I gifted it to my aunt recovering from a surgery. 

Another quick project I made with a Hexie Mug Rug. I got 2, 3, and 4 inch Hex templates 
that I can now make various things and the paper pieces.

It's finally been a bit warmer here to get out on my bike more.  

Showing off my bike basket liner. 

Found some Lilacs that my girl enjoyed as well.

And this weekend we got the veg planted. It's Victoria Day weekend here
in Canada. Always nice to have a 3 day weekend.

Have a good weekend all!

Quilt Show and More

This week I only managed one small project.  A coaster mug rug.
I found the pattern and template from Ellis & Higgs site.

And today was our local area Quilt Show.  I picked up a few things. 
Grab bag of magazines/patterns/books for a buck.
And a few fat quarters.

As well yesterday some material from Fabricland.

The stars is a canvas fabric.  

They had some other cute canvas fabrics as well.

So now for some quilt show pics.

Love the Canadian quilt with a square for each province.
How unique is this dog quilt. 

Canvas fabric, new trend.  This cross body bag was really nice.

I think I want to make a hexie quilt for myself someday.

Delicious fabrics.

How cute is the key holder quilt.

I wish I had a machine like this.

And this week I got another Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fatquarter Shop.

Gotta love spring when the garden centers open up.  This year the cool weather is 
lingering a bit long than usual.

Happy weekend all!

Holidays Means More Crafting

Last weekend was Easter weekend and for the first time in a few years I didn't have to
work it.  My industry is 24/7 and we have to work 3 holidays a year. I was glad to have
this one off finally. I got quite a bit of sewing done.

I used up some left over scraps and made a small baby quilt pad.  Changing pad if you 
like.  My hubby gave it to his co-worker who just had a baby.

I finished up a bag I had started.  The outside is crocheted and I sewn the lining to fit, 
added the zip and assembled it to the crochet outer piece.  Now I just have to decide 
and get the handles to suit.

Looking back on these photos I had started the crochet stripe back in May 2015.
Wow time flies.

And I finished this panel, quilted and ready to hang. 

I also made this pixie cup I saved the pattern for a while back. 
Mostly to hold my sewing stuffs on my bench.

And this weekend I found this musical note fabric, a co-worker plays in a band
so I made up this box pouch for her.

Despite now tennis elbow pain for weeks, I still find it hard to give up
any crafting. First it was tendinitis in my left shoulder now it's in right
elbow.  I've been going to physio for a few months now.  Just getting older I guess.

Happy Weekend all!!

Spring is in the air

Slowly but surely my aches and pains have been alleviating a bit enough to work on 
some crochet.  I pulled out this #c2c corner to corner project started a while ago.
I did manage to finish another row. 

Another birthday came and went, getting closer and closer to the 50 mark. 
It still amazes me that I'm in my 40's now being quite young at heart still
or as hubby calls me a big kid.  That's ok, it's better to be that way in my opinion.
We had the day off and I found a quilt shop in our area so I had to check it out.

I restrained myself and only bought what I needed at the time, some quilting interfacing.

I am making a small quilt for hanging from a panel I had gotten a while back.  It's pinned 
and ready to baste then quilt.

I finished my bike basket liner and managed my first right of the year this week. 
We've had a few days with near 60 degree weather.  It seems the cold winter air has 
lingered too long this  year.

I made some sewn eggs for Easter.  

I made this little patchwork pouch for my Etsy shop.  

I subscribed to this sew sampler box from @fatquartershop on Instagram. 
I made the pouch from the Moda fabric that came in this box.

It contained roll of moda fabric, silicon iron pad, some great scissors, 
spool huggers and some patterns. 

Well happy Sunday!
