On Friday night I joined in the Sew-in. I managed to get two fitted cot sheets and one flat sheet finished. I'm still working on the second flat sheet just have to work out what I am going to put on it!!! A boat I think or maybe a rocket!!
This little Robot is from the Boy's Story book by Annie Downs.
I also finished off another of the stitcheries from the book. Two down 9 to go. I finished the archer one. They are pretty cool designs. It's a pretty cool book!!!
(sorry for the quality of the photos!! I also need to give them a wash to get rid of the blue dots)
I joined the Friday Night Sew-in hosted by Heidi at Handmade by Heidi. I have to post some pics tomorrow so hopefully I can get some stuff done. I'm trying to get those little kids to bed early but not sure of my chances!!!! Gong to do some of Isaac's stitcheries while Better homes is on the I need to make some cot sheets for Isaac and not sure what else!!! So until tomorrow take care
My friend Gill and her family are moving to Cairns in March!! She has been working on some quilts for her family in Melbourne and wanted to get them finished before she went. Also she is meeting up with them in Albury at the end of this month. So I told her I would help her out by sewing the bindings. I helped her finish two so now she only has one to do.
First one was 'The Princess and the Pea' from the Moda Bake House
The other is asian fabrics and i think she made it up as she went. This one she made for her Mum.
I am a Thrity something female married with the most beautiful girl Rhiannon or Renny as we call her.We have just expanded in the family sense with the birth of our handsome mini man Isaac who has completed our little family.I have the best husband who I would say is also my best friend. It's great to have a partner who realises that craft is more important!!!
