Just so many...

How do you choose? 

We have had so many new fabulous fabrics delivered over the last couple of weeks, I cant decide what to make next!

Something for the kitchen?

Or something for the bedroom...

Or a new bag 

Or something for Rocco?

Think I will sleep on it and decide tomorrow!

What ever you are doing this Easter Bank Holiday.

What a difference a week makes

I have another quilt to share with you today. I have been commissioned to make this for a little boy who is mad on cars. One good thing about this snowy weather is you can sew, sew, sew.

The garden today looks much like yesterday, a winter wonderland! It doesn't seem to be moving much at all and it is so cold. So I thought I would share some pictures from in the garden last Sunday.

More patchwork

This is what we got up to this morning

So I decided to get the shopping in and spend the day sewing. 

I cut and prepared my fabrics and started building my blocks.

I have used two different cog print fabrics, also a small cream dot with green background and small mustard spot on a blue background teamed with a contrasting mustard solid.

A couple of finished blocks 

Some of the the finished blocks...might introduce a couple more colours tomorrow. 

Well it does look like another sewing day...

I have a few more pictures to show you I thought I would share some pics of my old Singer sewing 

I love all the gold detail.

Happy crafting.

Crazy quilt

I have added some more wonky squares to my crazy quilt. 

Now all I have to do is finish off sewing the binding on. 

If the snow keeps falling I may get time this weekend as we will be cancelling our family get together.

What ever you have planned this weekend ENJOY!

Happy crafting.

Here are a few of the wonderful creations the ladies have made

All very beautiful, and a couple of pictures from earlier in the day
