Sometimes you just want instant satisfaction from a project don't you?
A quick, one day, or few days to give you a break from the long term commitment type project. I made the two things I'm going to show you today around about the time I was procrastinating over my dining room seat covers. They've been hanging around since then, waiting for a moment to be shown.
This first little project I love. It was a very pleasurable day spent in the craft room, faffing with fabrics and trims. Using some of the little hexie pieces I got in a swap a while ago. The idea is not mine, not one tiny bit of it came from my head. It's another Nana Co creation that was so fabulous, I couldn't bear not to have my own.
This second one though....
Naa, not so much. The pattern I like, it's cute. But I didn't have enough in one yarn or the other to make the whole thing, so I decided to use both. A mistake, I don't like it.
I really like both colours separately, but really I wish I had enough of the duck egg blue colour to make the whole thing. I would have been much happier if I had.
It was very quick to make, so one day, if I find the right colour I might do it again.... properly!
