How did you go with the tutorial? Have you downloaded it yet ? A friend requested 30 rabbit themed calendars for her rabbit breeder friends. I had so much fun making them. I find the process very relaxing although I can't do it all in one sitting and have to keep going back to it as sitting for too long isn't good for my pain levels.
I finished them off sitting up in bed with the heat on my spine. My bedroom is beginning to look a little like a hospital room these days. I have an over the bed roller table just like the hospitals but it makes things much easier when I am confined to bed. Here they all are packaged up and ready for collection along with some rabbit themed birthday cards I made a little while ago.
From next Friday 28th October I will be having a linky party every week for anyone that has made something using any of my tutorials. There will be a little random prize every week for one of the bloggers that joins up their link to their make.
I have entitled this post "Sadness". That is what I felt last week after my initial joy of discovering this gorgeous quilt at my local oppy for just $6.00
It is in perfect condition and the perfect size to throw over me on top of the bed. And what's more it is in beautiful pastel colours which I love.
It saddens me to think that a quilter has lovingly made this quilt and sat at her machine for hours putting it together, had it professionally quilted and then most probably gifted it to a loved one, only for it to end up on the racks at a thrift shop.
But it is safe now and will stay with me forever and will be my constant daily companion. I was going to make myself one that was big enough to cover my feet but not too wide and this special find fits the bill perfectly.
Now I need a little help from you. I also purchased this item for 50c on the same day. It is metal and measures 19cm from handle to handle. I think it may be a butter slicer ? But I'm not sure.
What are your thoughts? What do you think it is ?
I'll be working on a new little idea today for a tutorial to be uploaded in a few days. I'll catch you then.
