Ducks

 I have started playing with the fabric I received form Terry's, You remember this post?
This is just the first little bit of what I have  planned- but I am rather pleased with the result!
 Stuffed with a teapot, it looks rather smart, I think!
 and I made the outer layer long enough to turn over the edges and use as a self binding!










Next I wanted to make oven gloves. So, I looked at the ones I have. And measured them, and thought about possible improvements. Not many improvements spring to mind. An oven glove is an oven glove, really.

And with the help of a couple of ducks...





We now have fun ducky oven gloves.









These have been followed by a table runner. Nicely sandwiched with heat resistant wadding, so pots can go straight on top, on the table.





I love these co-ordinating kitchen bits. It has just taken me a little longer to get to them, than I had thought!


The next pieces are planned!  soon, very soon...Just wait and see...
