Busy sewing

February 28, 2010

I have been busy with birthday present quilts.  My daughter cannot sleep without hers which makes me feel so happy that she likes it.  Only just got my nephews sent, two weeks late, hope he likes it.

I’ve already started a quilt for my mum.  She has a VW camper van so I got some Happy Campers by American Jane.  I was stuck for a while as to how to cut into it but have decided that my first quilts were a bit complicated so I’d make it nice and simple.  I can’t show yet because it is going to be a Mother’s Day gift.

I had the urge to create something pink over the weekend so I made this for Flo.  I think I prefer the back of the cushion to the front.

What do you think?


Just noticed that the spots match her wallpaper!  So co-ordinated.


Feeling the love

I run a small sewing club for the children at the school I work at.  We have been making love hearts for Valentines Day but the trouble is that they are very addictive and I can’t stop making them.  I have no idea what to do with them all but I have even got my eldest daughter making them.  Does this make me sad or really sad?
