I did manage to do a very quick bit of sewing on Monday night - a home made gift for my son's piano teacher. She is a big Elvis fan, so I made her a " record" placemat/ pot mat,
I had just treated myself to the " Mollie Makes" Christmas special last week, and when I saw this pattern, I knew I had to make one for Christine-
I think it looks even better with the Elvis fabric -left over from making a bag for her Christmas gift 2 years ago! I added a black dot for the centre " hole" - I think it makes it look more record like. I will definitely be making more of these! When I started it my H asked if I was going to make a set, but I said at this point I will be happy to get at least one sewn up ready for the next day!
And the other thing that has kept me busy lately -
Meet Bilbo, who I found on the side of the road last Monday, barely able to walk, I think he fell out of his nest a bit early. Hence the name Bilbo - as he had an unexpected journey!
