A reveal

I suppose it is time to come clean and show what I have made for my mouthy partner. I really hope she will like it. I think she will. I eventually went with owls, they seemed fun, and although I made another elephant panel, it didn't quite work the way I wanted, so these fellows seemed keen to participate.
They worked better with the Japanese cotton, and seemed more 'fun' than the elephants.
I will use these elephants, in a different pouch, because I do really like them, just not for this.


I also decided to go with a different shape of pouch, to show them off a little better, I was quite pleased with the end result.

And the other side?  A mini mosaic, made up of the fabrics used for the owls, and also some other fabrics which seemed to me to work.


my only quibble with this, is that the bottom of the pouch didn't work quite as neatly as I wanted it to, but looking at it with my 'sensible head' on, I decided, I could take it apart and redo, but it might be worse, and then what do I do? So, I left it.

These pouches have to be posted, week beginning the 25th, I go away on 26th, and am working on 25th, so I shall have to ask my receptionist to be kind enough to post mine out during the week. I am sure she will help out for me!

Since this, I have been making Morris belts, and they are now done. Now I have to go catch up with the skill builder, and then think about the FMQ, and see how I get on with that.

On another note, have you seen the lovely Oakshott cottons Lily is giving away. Please do not go there, do not comment, you are just pushing the odds up, and I have no chance anyway!

Maybe after supper!

Hurrah for you - think you did a splendid job and I hope your partner has got round to telling you so. I do love those elephants too so you must show how they eventually end up please.

I just realised you have adult children - we don't even have adult adults in this household ;)

The adorable little owls have come to live at my house - I am thrilled to bits, I simply love everything about my pouch from mammafairy..... I think there has been some brilliant stalking going on here, it's spot on..... Now I just need to use it everywhere i go to show it off.

Thank you so so so much Rachel
