.: the start of the pressie line-up :.

I can feel a few pressie-posts coming on, since pretty much all my sewing time lately has been spent on pressie-sewing.  Apart from swaps and bees.  

Just a couple of in-progress pics to share with you today.  First up, a cushion-top, with the beyond-fabulous Tula Pink raccoons, from her Acacia line. I don't know what it is about the raccoons, but I love them.  A lot.  As much as I love all things Melody Miller (the awesome telephone in the middle). 

{{what does the raccoon say?}}
And now, the churn-dash-a-thon.  I really can't believe there are only 12, since it feels like I've been sewing them for a very long time.  A few of them are for specific people - which has meant that specific fabrics have been chosen ... the most obvious one is the piano-cats on the top left, which is for the girls' piano teacher.  Who loves the piano.  And cats.  Are you on board with my thought process?  It's hard to keep up, I know.

The churn dashes are all destined to become hot-pads.  I think.  I'm a little worried about the glittery-fabric on a few of them - maybe they're not made for hot-stuff to be sat on them. A Plan B could be in the works ... maybe they'll become zip-pouches, or a panel for a bag, or even sit in the unfinished-projects drawer for several months.  The possibilities are endless.

Hope you've had a happy weekend.  I'll be back in a couple days to share my Down Under Doll Quilt Swap mini - once it's safely in the mail.  'til then, xoxo cat
