Did you have time to do a bit of sewing lately? I didn't make much sewing gifts this year, compared to last year. But, I did manage to finish up the HST Pillows for my stepparents.
Craftsy class and her book. I used grey thread. It matched perfectly the back. For the front, I was hesitating between a grey or cream thread. I went with the grey one as I didn't want the thread to contrast with the prints in the HST. But, I'm still unsure whether this was the right choice. My quilting is far from being perfect and it really shows off. But, I really like the textures that it adds to the pillow.
I also made a few cup cozzies for gifts. I used the template by Jeni Baker from In Color Order. However instead of doing it using a patchwork, I used some quilted felted wool leftover from last year's Christmas Stockings and some Christmas prints for the lining.
I didn't sew much in the Holidays either, but I did work on a new baby quilt. Both the top and back panel are done. I photographed it two days ago in the snow just behind our house.
And what about you, did you do some sewing for gifts or in the Holidays?
