It’s Tuesday and I can’t wait…

by Kate on May 26, 2009

I’m the sort of girl that is always looking forward to something, so when I saw this post by Buttons by LouLou I knew that I would have to join in.

It’s Tuesday and I can’t wait for…my Mum’s Biggest Morning Tea, which is actually being held this Saturday afternoon so I guess it’s Mum’s biggest afternoon tea. Hmmm…Nan is baking all sorts of goodies, Mum is concocting all her delicious savoury dishes and the bubbles will be flowing. All in the name of charity – perfect.

I thought I would contribte to Mum’s lucky door prize and whipped up some of Kristen Doran’s pouches (pattern found in Meet Me at Mike’s craft book), I am going to fill them with some yummy fragrant soap’s.


These little babies are SO quick to whip up and I had lots of fun playing around with fabric choices. I ended up going with some Heather Bailey, Amy Butler, Aunty Cookie and linen.

I also wanted to do something nice for my nan, using Kristen’s fabric and embroidery pattern I put together a little cushion. Another satisfying, quickish project finished.


And just in case you are wondering, I haven’t forgotten about quilting…oh no…just contemplating my next project and finishing off some others.

gosh my lady you have been b-u-s-y! Everything looks super stunning too (of course). Can I ask where you got the linen from? I have been after something similar … Have fun on Saturday afternoon!

I’m finding it’s nice to spend a little time whipping up quick little projects in between those quilting marathons that always take an age to complete. Isn’t a quick finish such a rewarding feeling??
Aaaaaahhhhhhh! now where’s the batting!!

Love the little bags and the pillow is beautiful. I love the subtle powder blues! You know you offered to send over a copy of that gorgeous ‘family treasures’ quilt in Woman’s Weekly. Well I can I take you up on that? We do have it here in NZ, but I think I’ve missed that particular issue. Are you still able to do this? No worries if you can’t!

Beautiful. Especially love the pillow. And is that your embroidery from the Finders Keepers? It would look lovely in my living room as i’m working on a new blue theme…( have been working on that for about 6 months now and broke my no.1 rule of 1 project at a time!) Anyhow, very nice indeed.

I'm sooo slow to comment on this one – I love it. Love the combo you have done on the cushion, beautiful. And your little pouches make me happy to see someone has used the pattern! Thanks.
