lobsterdesigns: (Fish baby quilt)
These little things are addictive. My mother's just had eye surgery, and while attempting to cheer her up and get us off the topic of painkillers, I started talking about quilting. Turns out she'd like a needle case too, please. Here it is in all its glory.

And a pincushion too! )

Needle cases

lobsterdesigns: (Rachel's Star)
I am pausing to make some needle cases. I owe a couple of people birthday presents, I fancy a small job, and it gives me a chance to start playing with ideas on a smaller scale before I turn them into wall hangings. [livejournal.com profile] mirrorshard, this is about your one, so don't click on the link if you don't want the surprise spoilt. Later edit: I've now done the piecing, but I'm going to put the picture next to the one where it was pinned up on the board for comparison.

Here's what I've pinned up on my brand-new design board )

I'll probably add to this post bit by bit over the next few days, so watch this space. Meanwhile, there's a picture below the cut. I didn't come up with the design myself, it's from Ruth McDowell's Piecing Workshop (you can see hers on the back cover), but that still left plenty for me to do. Now I just have to get up the courage to learn how to use my new sewing machine and try to get it quilted in time for [livejournal.com profile] ghost_of_a_flea's mother's birthday in mid-January.
