Rainbow clock

I have been gathering things up recently for my new sewing room. One thing I wanted but couldn't find was a rainbow clock or colour wheel clock so I decided to make my own.
I was given a long time ago a curtain sample set of swatches. I dug them out and laid them out in a rainbow wheel? Then I drafted a paper pattern, copied it a few times and started to sew....

Cushion making with d4

On the weekend d4 and I made a cushion from an upcycled pair of jeans, some curtain fabric and various old bits of clothing. This is a present for a friend of hers, now it's done she thinks she'd like to make 4 more including one for herself. I'd better get searching for some more old jeans in my wardrobe.....

Oven gloves

When my husband made a request for me to sew some new oven gloves I got straight on it! Not often there is something he wants me to make.....
First I quilted 2 layers of insulbrite between some fabric, then I found a pattern I had previously used which I modified a bit. Drew around it, stitched on the line with a stitch length of 1.5, trimmed, overlocked, clipped between finger and thumb, turned right side out and added some binding and voila a pair of new oven gloves.

Took a lot longer Than I thought, but it is finished now!
