Late FNSI check in!

Wow where has the weekend gone? Actually now that I look back at the last post I made where have the last few weeks gone? I haven't been getting much done lately I have been busy crocheting rabbits for friends and then I remembered the little girl next door was having a birthday this week so guess what she got from us? Yep ...a rabbit! Here are two that are still in progress and I still have two more to make!
This one was finished early in the week.

This is what I was working on for FNSI

I have noticed that each time I make one they are getting a little smaller, I hope that means I am getting better at crocheting. It isn't because I have changed hooks or thread weight so what else could it be? ;0)

I have been having trouble motivating myself to sew lately and I just didn't know why but I think I discovered the reason this week. I have been keen to make this for someone but kept putting it off  because I had so many UFOs to get finished and I have been trying to be good and not start anything new. However,  I think it just decided it was time to be made. It is coming together nicely but I can only show you a sneak peek because it is a surprise!

Today it wasn't me that was sewing it was Master Eight. He decided it was time to finish his Hummingbird!
I think he did a pretty good job with it and I only had to help with the really tricky bits like the hand sewing (especially the button joints!) but he did the rest. I wonder what his next project will be?

Linking up with FNSI. Tomorrow I think I will enjoy a cuppa while I check out what everyone else did on Friday night!

Another Bunny

When I showed some friends the bunny that I had made they asked if I could make them some, so the bunnies will be multiplying around here for the next few days! Here is the one I finished today.
Three more to go!

Meadow Mist Mystery Quilt Revealed

The last clue for the Meadow Mist Mystery Quilt went up yesterday and I knew what I would be doing today as soon as I saw it! So I finished up my quilt top and I have already dropped it into Quilty Desires to be quilted. It is the first time I have participated in a mystery quilt along and I enjoyed every minute of it. If Cheryl runs another one this year I am pretty sure I will join in again!

Can't wait to see what Jude or Marci do with the quilting on this one! I just love this quilt.

February OMG Project

So I finally decided what my February goal is going to be. Yes it is another UFO that a friend has been very patiently waiting for so it will be nice to get it finished and off to the quilter.
Linking up with Elm Street Quilts February Goal Setting Party and I'm off there now to check out what others are planning to work on! Why don't you check it out too?

Ok so I joined OPAM today

I thought it would be a good idea to try and get something finished early so I pulled out my Amigurimi Bunny for my next project as I didn't have much left to do on it, only problem was I didn't realise one of the ears fell on the floor and when I cleaned up I vacuumed it up. So I then had to make another ear, but I couldn't remember which size hook I had used when I started it and I used the one I had become very comfortable with. Turned out it was too big and I needed to use the next size down. So after a false start I finally got the ear remade and then I made the arms and legs. It was so close to being finished I couldn't go to bed until it was done (hence the 1am post!) Anyway it is now finished and I have my first OPAM finish for the year, plus I can mark another UFO off the list!

Now what will I do next?
(Maybe I should go to bed since I have to do the school run in the morning!)

No time for blogging when the finish line is in sight!

I haven't been blogging as I have been busy finishing up my One Monthly Goal I could see the finish line getting closer and closer and I knew if I really pushed myself I could make it to my extra goal as well.  Today I reached that extra goal and finished my quilt top ready to take into Quilty Desires to be quilted by the very talented people in there! Not only that I am another step closer to completing another UFO!
Linking up with OMG Finish Up Linky Party you should see what some of the other people have achieved this month!

Now what will I work on next?

Another Step Closer

Today I had a wonderful day sewing with some amazing friends. I really missed joining them during the school holidays. I sewed the moons onto the blocks I had started preparing yesterday and then I did the blanket stitch around some more of the squares for my crocheted fabric quilt. I am slowly getting them done. I think I will blanket stitch around all of them before I start crocheting them.
It could take a while though!

When I got home I had some time to myself as Master Eight was visiting a friend so I did the rest of the prep work on those last four blocks of Hello Moon. Then I finished stitching the last of the blocks I had previously prepared. I also figured out how I am going to set them when I put them together. If I work really hard for the next few days I might even get the top put together. Still holding out hope that I can!
