A Bit of This and That

Managed to create a few things lately on my sewing machine.  A little quilt of love - really enjoy making these, a good cause and using up some fabric scraps. 

Also made this little bag - a kit I bought at the Sydney Quilt Show a couple of years ago.  It was for my sewing friend Ros.  It turned out really well I think and the fabrics are quite exotic. 

Also now revealing my mouse I made for Lyn for the Thimbleprims Mouse Swap.  Hand sewn - I had a lot of fun designing and making this little critter (even though hubby thinks it looks more like a rat!)  I definitely have a soft spot for 'softies'. 

Hope it cools down in Adelaide soon - I have some swap partners waiting for their swaps - not only addicted to blogging now but also sewing swaps - I have to send parcels to Finland, Vancouver Is and California! 

Had a great (but warm) day with my sewing friends The Material Girls today at Hettie's Patch for our first gathering for 2010.  We all had a productive day and thanks as always to the lovely Faye - our teacher and friend.


  1. Lovely things one and all
    I love your little mouse Husbands are always over critical
    Don't apreciate the finer things in life Ha Ha
