My eye spy is finished!


I used heaps of sewing and dog themed prints in this one and backed it in pink to further stamp my ownership on this one! It is mine! All 195 prints :) And I love it!



And I finally got around to attaching a printed label, I usually forget to add it into the binding seam and then can't be bothered! I love this pink as backing and binding fabric, it has a slight textured look and feel to it which just makes it nicer than a flat pink. It was in my stash, so it was a thrifty backing choice as well.


For now it is hanging on a quilt rack in my dining room but it'll be my lap quilt for watching telly :)


I made this one this week as well it is a small boys eye spy match lap quilt, I had quite a few 4" pairs left after making an eye spy match quilt last week for a friends son, so I decided to make a small quilt to use them up:

approx 36" x 36"
 I chose this space themed fabric from my stash for the backing, so hopefully the boy that ends up with this quilt will love the back as much as the front. It doesn't have an intended recipient yet, so it is on a quilt rack for now.

Then this morning I made hubby an iPad pocket to hang on the arm of his chair:

My camera lens really needs cleaning!
 The iPad can fit in lengthwise like above or upright:


That way it can charge whilst in there as well:


It just wraps over the arm and buttons up: 


So I have a few finishes and had some time to play with scraps, a great day so far :)
