Knitted Bib

I knitted this baby's bib from 100% cotton, earlier this week, for part of a present I gave at a Baby Shower.

This is the first one I have made and I think I will be making a few more....could have sold it a couple of times before I gifted it!
It was one of the MANY free patterns from

Time gets away!

I can't believe it is over 2 weeks since I posted on my blog!
As I keep saying, "I have been busy!".

I have "just" finished this cute Christmas quilt.  I bought the kit when I was in the States this year.
 I also bought these matching fabrics while over there and made this simple, but effective single bed quilt.
 ...and here is the back of it to show the stitch I used to quilt it all together.  
The stitch is called "bowtique".
 While I have been quilting & sewing, Mum has been tidying up my stash and I saw the teddy bear fabric in a neatly folded pile she had just I fussy cut it and "sort of" followed a picture of a quilt I saw on the computer, I tweaked it a bit and Mum pieced it together.
I was showing a customer the stitch pattern I used on the teddy bear quilt ....
...... to cut a long story short....she bought the quilt! 

Until next post...

Another bag..this time for me!

While tidying up my fabrics, I came across a block that my friend from the States sent me years ago (2005).....
 so, I found a fat quarter of American fabric I had and made up a zippered bag for myself.
I will be using it to store my embroidery work that I take with me while I am away from home and need something to keep my hands busy.

After seeing a picture of this, my daughter has asked me to make one for my grand daughter's best friend who just loves all things American!
