Baby Quilt

Hi,
Some things just take forever to get finished and this was one of them. It felt really good when the last stitch was done. Such a small quilt as well. It was from a charm pack and the pattern was from a tutorial. www.pieceandquilt.com

All Sorts

Hi there,
I have a few more photos of Margaret s Dear Jane blocks. It’s going to be gorgeous when it’s finished. Also a little draw string bag for a present. I think the fabric is called Sandcastle fabric. It’s already finely quilted. I bought it some years ago and have never seen it since. Also a baby quilt for my nephew who has just had a baby girl….or rather his wife Julie has! I made the baby quilt years ago as well and forgot about it so that saved me from having 8 new things on the go !!

Cushion & Knitting

Hi There, Ever get the feeling of having too much to do? Well I’m ignoring all the sewing for a few days and decided to knit fingerless gloves….for my mum. Something small to do quickly…well i say quickly but last night i had almost finished the second glove and i dropped a stitch …right down the bottom…i did exactly the same on the first one as well !
Although i managed to put the cushion together for our colour Quarterly group that’s held 4 times a year. This time we have been given the green fabric. Some of the things the ladies make are wonderful. I’ll have to get some photos to put up for next time…

Christmas

Hi There, I made a wall hanging a while ago with a little creature I liked the shape of. It was called mythological because it could have been a few things. Well now it’s turned into a Reindeer for Christmas! A short legged one. A note book cover. How hard it is trying to come up with something for boys……there’s a million things for girls but when it comes to boys you’re racking your brain for forever. If there’s a page out there with ideas on i would love to see it!

Wall Hanging

Hi, I’m having the most boring day doing GST and every now and then i look at the old photo’s on the computer to give me a break. I thought i would put a picture of the table topper i made …or a wall hanging maybe on the blog. It was from a book Scandinavian Stitches and finished at 40′ x42′. I made it smaller and gave it to my son. A rhyme for children past on from generation to generation and good fun to make with Brandon Mabley’s  fish fabric.

Until next time, Linda
