More items for my craft stall.  

I made these aprons for last year's sale and all but one sold, so I got in and made more for this year.
This is my favourite one (I made 2 of these).
The centre piece is meant to be a fat quarter cut into a square, but I used a "cushion panel" for this one, and only have to cut it down a bit.

I will be using this model for the display at the sale.  I found last year, whatever was on the model sold first.. I had to keep re-dressing the model!
The following are more aprons finished.
Folded up ready to sell
Wish I didn't have to go back to work on Monday!
Until next post..

Cushions for my Stall

As mentioned last post, I have been "resting" by doing some sewing.  

 I am having my annual Patchwork & Craft Sale on the 8th December, so I thought I had better get in and make some items for sale.

Today I was making & finishing off these cushions:
Christmas Cushions

Christmas & Snoopy Cushions
Snoopy Cushions
All piled up!

Will post again tomorrow with more of what I am doing for the stall.

Until next post...

Flowers, Fish, Jewellery

Still showing you some Fiji photos

These are some of the beautiful flowers in bloom while I was there:

The blue star fish and the colourful fish:

 This is my grand daughters braids... it took 3 hours for the 91 braids to me done
This is how bingo is played over there.. with rocks!

Then I spoilt myself with these 2 pieces of jewellery
Made from Coconuts

Black fresh water pearls

While I was over there I felt unwell for a couple of days, not the tummy bug, but very sore throat, tired, aching arms & legs and VERY tired (slept for a day and half solid, only getting up to "try" to eat).  I put it down to the air conditioning and all the walking & stairs climbing I was doing, so I thought I would shake it off when I got back, but my throat got worse.  I eventually made a doctor's appointment yesterday, only to find out I have Glandular Fever.
I am on medication to reduce the swelling and the inflammation.  But the cure is rest.

So what does a quilter/patch worker do for rest?  SEW!!
Tomorrow I will show you what I have been up to!

Until next post...
