Have started yet another project - a patchwork doorstop!  Because I tend to stitch everything  by hand it takes a long time.  When I have my craft room re-organised I hope to have the sewing machine permanently set up on its own table, so I can use it whenever I need.  Now, because I have to take the machine off the shelf in the wardrobe AND find a surface to use it on, I always chicken out and do it by hand instead.  Also if I'm going to take projects to do in my lunch hour at work, I need to stick to hand sewing.

This is the nine patch on the front of the doorstop.  The rest is made from a navy blue corduroy I've had for years.  I think the fabric is from a skirt I started and never finished!
