Not long after we got back from WA in October last year we had a major flea infestation. It was so bad we had to spray, wash & flea bomb everything. I mean everything, the cat escaped being bombed, but not the spraying & washing. It was horrid. Poor Emsy copped the worst of it, it seems she's tasty to the fleas. Even now her legs are still a mess (she wont leave the scabs alone).
But as they say for every dark cloud there is a silver lining. For me it was I decided to wash all my fabrics that I amassed over the last five or six years. Which then led me to actually making something with them.
I designed this quilt from scratch. I was inspired by the night sky material that I used as a background. I named this quilt "Owlet" because it reminds me of a baby owl. I tried to make it look as though he's sitting on a fence. I am really pleased with this quilt. It took one day to design & put together. Not bad for my first real attempt.
This is Lils' finished sack. It is the same size as a pillow case. I didn't use a lot of christmas fabric in this one. The bears around the edges have hearts & I thought they tied in well with the central panel. I zig zagged around the edges of the applique. I also used a fine Coic marker for the Christmas light string & some of the finer details on the bear. The coloured lights I satin stiched (not well). I will share a photo of Emsy's sack once I find out where she's put it.
Well that's it from me for today. Hope you enjoyed seeing some of my "other" craft.
Hugs to you all xoxoxo
