Fabric

I went through my fabric stash the other week. I found fabric I didn't know I had, they were only small pieces though so I had to make small items for a small person. Below a pair of shorts from a nice bright fabric with printed turtles on it
And the next one is a skirt in a fish fabric and some red bobble trim
There was a small piece of this fabric left over so I created a small bag for her with pockets a some more red bobble trim.

I have made a dress for myself and also a black and white stripe top from another stash find. No pictures of these but I'll post some later.

A bit of sewing and knitting

Well health wise it's been a rubbish three months since the middle of February. It's taken a long while to get back on track but I'm getting there slowly. I'm hoping that the holiday I'm going on next week will do a lot to improve things. Whilst I have been sitting I have been knitting and have finished a cardigan for Eva
It's so pretty with the bit of glitter in the yarn. Next project in the knitting line are school cardies in red. Where did those four and a half years go?

Pocket Album

Well this is the little album with Graphic 45 papers, isn't is cute? The instructions were on Clare's blog "Mycreativespirit". As I said it holds twelves normal 6 X 4 photos so any trip, party, birthday, outing holiday or special occasion and it will come in very useful. It is very easy to make so should be done during class. The only thing that takes time is choosing the beautiful Graphic 45 papers. The ones I used were from the Botanical tea collection.

The Red Coat

This page is all about little red coats. Eva had a little red coat when she was born that she wore a few times and is now being saved for any children she may have. In the other picture she is wearing the coat her mum and maybe her auntie wore when they were four. It was saved by her Nannie Helen and this too is also going to be saved. Hope the moths don't get to them. I have still to do some journaling and some black bows.

The two above are of the pony dress I made for Eva. A pony to bash and a pony cake and a dress I knitted for her from a photo her mum sent me. Ignore the top one I can't delete it.

Catch up

A few pics from a party at our house to wish my niece Helen good luck with her forthcoming trip to Australia. A couple of pieces of bunting to give the party feel and brads to hold the pictures on.


This page has been kept fairly simple with the addition of machine stitching, blossoms and a metal bird
