I feel like I should apologise in advance. This is going to be a bit of a picture heavy post. In large due to the fact that I got quite a number of things completed this week! Well. For me at least! :)
I have a total of 5 finishes this week. Yes. You read that right. 5. FIVE.
1 x adult boxer shorts
3 x children boxer shorts
1 x completed table runner
I stumbled upon a Facebook group called Scientific Seamstress Lab Group in my wanderings. I kept reading about people making boxers and raving about them. I thought why not! So I purchased the pattern from their etsy store and away I went. Poor Jacob was the first guinea pig so his boxers are quite speshul. However, I gave him the boxers to "try on" and he didn't take them off again until shower time! So I was unable to get any photos of his. However. I did then continue on to make a set of boxers for each of the kidlets.
After the first pair however, I kind of had an idea what I was meant to be doing. So this pair was infinitely better than the first! This here is Miss Jaelyn. She was the my somewhat unwilling model!

And here is Lachlan and Pipers boxers.
And by the time I got to pairs 3 and 4 it was so much easier again!
I plan to make a slew of these for the kids to wear for summer pj's! I guess I'd better make a few more pairs for Jacob too who has ordered 10!
Also this week I headed down to Spotlight because they were having a HUGE sale on their Fat Quarter Flats! So I might have purchased a few.
Some of these are for set projects I have in mind. Some are just adorable fabrics for the kids with potential projects in mind :)
These ones are an organic set! So soft! Couldn't resist them!
Another project that has been sitting in my "To-Finish" pile was a Christmas table runner I suddenly had an urge to make last year. Here's the pictures.
Don't worry, I havn't forgotten about the pink quilt in need of quilting! It is half quilted. But my arms were so sore from moving it around I just had to take a break! I hope to have her finished by the end of this week.
And now, I'm off to visit a friend for coffee and then I'm gonna get started on drafting up some other ideas I have in mind!
