What I've been working on lately...

The income has dropped considerable since moving to part-time so I have moved onto finishing works in progress rather than buying anything new (that's the plan anyway).

So I've finally finished my sewing machine cover.  I started it around two years ago, from  book called Hooley Dooley designs.

Front and back view (I especially love the redback spider on the door of the backyard loo)

Another long work in progress that I've ticked off is a handbag for my eldest sister.  Again, I started this about 2 years ago.  But I'm very pleased with the end result, and perfect timing - her birthday is next week!

I also made a twin dresden cushion for one I made few years ago (I had bought the fabric for a second one when I made the first).  I was surprised at how much easier it was to do this time, I guess I have learnt some things over the past few years.

And finally today, I made the cutest little pin cushion.  I can't even remember where or when I bought it but I had a little kit for it at the bottom of a drawer.
