New finish

I was asked to make this for a friend. It did prove challenging but it was well worth it in the end.

Another Catch up

I have been so busy making things I haven't been posting much lately so here is a little catch up!
I have been eyeing this guy off at Frazzy Dazzles for a long time and Jennifer had recently put some kits up in her etsy store so I just couldn't resist any longer. Master 9 wanted him but I said no way he is mine!

I finally finished the boy bunny to go with the ballerina bunny for my friend. I was pretty happy with the way he turned out as I came up with the changes myself to make him a boy :0)

This one was a birthday present for a friend

And this one will be amongst the first offerings on my new facebook page where I will be selling some of my creations. Check it out at The Littlest Bird

Wow I didn't realise it had been that long since I posted!

Just realised I missed posting anything in October so here is a catch up of what I have been doing since my last post.

This was a little panel doll I had sitting in my stash just waiting to be sewn together.

I finished the pink blocks for my RSC Challenge quilt

I started on some chameleons and did some work on my Around the Bases crochet afghan 

I made a ballerina bunny for a friend

I have also been working on some things for a swap I am participating in

Like these snowflakes, I still need to starch them and get them into shape properly.

I made this cushion cover too (I hope she doesn't read my blog cause I haven't shown this side in the swap feed on instagram!)

I had fun making these little guys one is headed to my partner

And I made one of these petit fours baskets for my partner

And today I whipped up this stocking. I'm still deciding if it needs pompoms on the points. What do you think?

A Finish

I finally finished the caterpillar my daughter asked me to make. I'm not totally happy with it's eyes I think they need to be bigger but since they were embroidered on it is a bit hard to fix :0(

Hopefully the person receiving it likes it anyway.

A Couple of Finishes

I haven't had a chance to post a picture of this yet but I had so much fun playing with some scraps to make this cute little Mini I found over at SewCanShe. There are a heap of other amazing tutorials over there too I can see I might be spending a bit of time following along making things from over there!
I even had a bit of fun giving free motion quilting a go on something other than a plain square of fabric. I still need lots of practice with it but I was happy with how this turned out!

Today I started and finished a nice quick project that had been just waiting to be done. I was really lucky to have a good friend who showed me how to do it and I am really pleased with the results.
What do you think?
I can see myself making more of these in the future especially when I am making quilts to go with them😜
I have a couple of other projects on the go at the moment and I can see I will need to update my UFO page again😳 as I am still finding projects (or starting projects with my sewing friends and not getting around to finishing them!)

One Monthly Goal Check in and August Goal

I met my July goal early in the month The Butterfly quilt was finished and delivered
I also finished a few other things that had been on my list for a while and a couple of other things too.

For August I still need to bind this quilt

and I want to finish another Crochet project or two! 

I'm off to Elm Street Quilts to check out how everyone else is doing with their goals!

One Of Those Quilts That Just Kept On Growing

DD asked me to make a quilt for one of her friends, the only stipulations were it had to be the Very Hungry Caterpillar and it needed to have green in it. So I found a panel and searched all over town for coordinating fabrics to go with it and only found two. I couldn't find a pattern I liked so I had to come up with a plan of my own.  I decided to offset the two blocks from the panel with two big green blocks. Then I added lots of coloured circles to the green blocks and all that was needed was some sashings and borders! What do you think?
 Is this quilt too big for a one year old????

Loving the Fanfare!

I have fallen head over heels for the latest range of fabrics at my local quilt store. It is called Fanfare! So far I have made these little baskets but I do have some other projects planned using this fabric!
What do you have planned to make soon?
