Finish your peas and carrots!
This is what happens when I'm left unsupervised and I have the urge to get behind the wheel (or as the case may be, the pedal on the janome). I've had these charm squares lolling around the cupboard for a short time and they've just been daring me to start another project.The range is called Pea's and Carrots.
They came in a pack from Ebay . (don't you just love the way I make it sound as though I just came home from work and there they were!)
I had a night at home and I hadn't actually done much on the sewing machine for a while so I thought I'd give this a burl. I didn't put a great deal of thought into the placement. I really just grabbed the pieces randomly and stitched them up. I plan on bordering it with an orange print from the same range and then find a stripe for the backing. Not sure what I will bind it with, but it will depend on the backing I guess. In any case I excused myself from the sewing table before I finished my peas and carrots and I fully intend on returning to finish them off, but for the moment I've got other stuff on my plate that needs to be pushed around with the fork and buried under the mashed potatoes before I can give this any further thought.
