A productive day

Why was it so productive? Well, Friday is Alastair's daycare day (and Emma's in school). Technically he goes to daycare so I can work on my university studies, so obviously I can craft to procrastinate ;) It's ok, the final assignment isn't due until November 10! (Never mind the fact I have Emma's birthday before then, with two events to plan for that.)

This had been sitting, cut out, in my WIP pile for ages because the fold-over elastic and TouchTape were out in the shed. Done, one large PUL cover for Alastair:

(I also polished off a couple of other things in the pile - an old work skirt that needed the identifying tags unpicked because it was a branded uniform but I really like the skirt and want to use it when I start working again, and a carrier that needed mending.)

One mei tai with hood, for ME this time:

This is going to get worn to the 'Reclaim the Night' march/rally tonight :D It's in Amy Butler Nigella twill, with cotton drill straps.

And I started on a Christmas present, my first-ever attempt at quilting. It's going to be a quilted wall hanging for the kitchen:

Obviously I still have to back it and quilt it. I know the piecing isn't quite square, but it's made with love, which is what counts ;) I swear it's not as uneven as it looks in the photo, though! I love love LOVE the coffee fabric (it's Morning Roast, by Timeless Treasures).

It's my own pattern, but I drew the original inspiration from Jan Andrea's page here:
