My Kinda Sunday :)

Standard

Been on the sewing machine all day! Only stopped because the light was getting poor 😀 Seriously need to invest in a daylight bulb for my crafting room.

Made my first serious attempt in quilting today, and I am quite pleased with the result actually (still need more practice though! ). Have a look at the picture below and let me know what you think??

As you can see from the photo, I have finally made the craft bag I was blogging about! I will post the tutorial tomorrow, so make sure to check back!

Next on the agenda is going to be more cross stitch and crochet (made into yet more Christmas decorations most likely :D). Obviously I will keep you updated. Also I will try and post some crochet patterns for some of the things I have made (if there is one in particular that I have made then please let me know!).

Make Your Very Own Needle Roll Up.

Standard

Head over to the tutorial section to find out how to make this easy and very practical needle roll up. Perfect for organising all your needles, hooks etc, but you could adapt it to hold any other stitchy items! Get making now and give it to someone new to knitting/crochet at Christmas ( could even include a few needles and hooks to get them started). As usual, comments and questions happily accepted. Enjoy and have fun making!

Brushing up on some skills….

Standard

Bit of a late post but today I have been busy crocheting. Never really done much crochet before, as used to be more of a knitter since that was what my nan taught me. Fancied doing something a bit different so came up with these………

Am thinking of making a little bag out of felt and so might use some of these to decorate, what do you think? What would you use them as? Attach a pin for a brooch? Button to the centre? Even attach a hair grip maybe???

Have to apologise now that I have still not posted any tutorials yet, however, I am hoping in the next few days I will be able to share some projects with you, I blame Christmas!!!  😛 Still haven’t put our Christmas tree up yet…. delaying the inevitable destruction that will be done by our two cats, Dottie and Lillie,however it is very fun to watch! Nighty night for now…
