It is always fun to dress in my special National Costume for 17. May.
I have done all the embroideries and sewing myself, which makes this costume even more special to me.
I am contemplating making a cape for next 17. May, as these days in May can be both cold and wet, like today.
The table topper in the first photo is my latest Ufo finish, finished last night, and very nice to put on the table for today.
This cute table topper measures 27,5" and I have used fabrics from my fabric collection
It is machine pieced, in good time before Christmas 2014, but got put to the side - reason forgotten.
I used a piece of cotton batting - Quilters Dream Request - and I think I like the results....
It shrunk a tiny bit, so the machine quilting sort of sunk in, and has overall a softer look than the polyester, "dead", thin batting I usually uses for table toppers and table runners.
I hope you had a lovely day, wherever you are!
