combined with the arrival of guests who were a little needy at times, seems to have sapped my motivation quite a bit.
I did a little bit of quilting on this improv piece that I had made before we went away for Christmas. It was made from leftover pieces of my Lines through the Uzbek quilt that I hadn't utilised. Of course there were the usual good intentions of doing a lot of quilting while I was away in New Zealand during the Christmas break, but alas it hardly saw the light of day :(
These fabric beads were made after I finished quilting Flower Garden, I had seen the fabric beads made by Victoria at The Silly BooDilly and thought I would make my own version. They are quite enjoyable to make and don't take too long and as Victoria mentioned they are a good way to use up the little scraps of batting and fabric that we all seem to accumulate.
