If anyone asked what crafting I would be doing this past week after I posted my last blog I would have said finish a quilt top that is in progress or work on my Vortex scrap blocks. Didn't work out that way.
On Monday I went to JoAnns armed with coupons and picked up some home dec fabric that I could use for furniture protection.We have a very active dog who is allowed full run of the furniture. (Bad parenting skills) The love seat is leather and is about 3 months old. It is already showing signs of dog scratches. We tried covering the love seat with a quilt but its shear weight on the slippery leather made it fall off several times a day. I came up with this two piece idea that can be pulled off in seconds for company or for laundering.
I had a little left and made a couple of pillows for the sofa.
Who could holler at that face?
While I was at JoAnns I found this piece of burlap that worked up wonderfully for a summer catch all on the porch. It too was on sale. This is the one hour basket that you can find the tutorial for free on Craftsy. Really does get done in an hour or less.
And last but far from least I managed to pop out 4 placemats. We are going to visit friends in their new home. They love placemats, so I thought I'd find a block that I liked and have at it.
I used some half square triangles with a white background and pale grey binding. The back which I forgot to photograph is white with grey lines in chevrons.
All in all a very productive week. Maybe next week I can finish that quilt top I started.
