Fun in my fabric world....

Good intentions...

...don't get blog posts done! I sometimes despair that life never hits that quiet, settled patch when I have time to reflect & achieve something just for the sake of it. The past week I have been away with work in Sydney, squeezing in some big work days around the trip locally too. I have been lucky enough to have DS home with a uni break so we did some serious hedge trimming (great upper arm workout) and some spring garden planting. always fun to see what each week throws at you.
Not a lot of stitching, but managed to finish the ottoman for DD. Good pattern, followed it to a "T", but it did not allow for the directional nature of the apple print, so some colors did not align...only worked this out at construction phase and the thought of unpicking all that quilting was too much to bear. DD is happy with it and it will be fine for feet!
I will miss the deadline for TTS to finish...it will be ready for next year...everyone who has finished has done a great job...hope I am not the only straggler!
 Here is DS with Molly before he left.

I think the footstool is great. I love the apple fabrics you used. Just as long as DD is happy with it is all that matters. Nice to meet your son.

The ottoman is fantastic.... I would never have noticed about the apples...!! Great to have DS home and isn't it obligatory for stitchers to have UFO's for next year?
