How has your week been? I've been super busy trying to get some long-needed projects finished... but unfortunately I've been foiled by the storms which means we've been without electricity since Thursday night. We're all sorted now, but before I get on with my quilting, here is my to-do list & progress so far:
- Make a fathers day gift for my dad...something for his camera - got an idea for this
- Make a fathers day gift for my husband....something for his surgery - QUILT TOP FINISHED, BACKING FINISHED
Post off some bee blocksDONE :)
- Finish a secret gift for someone in our Care Circle bee - almost finished
- Make a start at the Handstitched Class project - no progress yet :(
So unfortunately my great intentions haven't exactly come to too much!
The big project was a quilt for my husband for fathers day for his doctors surgery &, although I'm a wee bit behind schedule, hopefully I will get this finished in time....Thanks so much for all the brill suggestions about the blocks - I've squinted at it (thanks Dolores), looked at it through a black & white filter (thanks Kerry), scrutinised & pondered over it & finally, come up with this:
Now the colours are a lot lighter in real life than this picture & the squares are 12"X12" - so hopefully it will be a a nice wee throw & a good size for the treatment couch in the surgery...
For my father I'll be making a pouch for his camera & leads & bits & pieces - but that will have to wait till tomorrow too!So are you fixed for fathers day? Do you make gifts or buy them? What about cards?? If you're looking for some last minute fathers day gifts here are some great possibilities from pinterest....
Aren't these key chain fobs so cute!
