we are heading off to our northern neighbour state this morning.
Sunny Queensland here we come!
I hope to catch up on my blog readings while away this time... & perhaps you will join me on

Just in TiMe

I managed to finally finish off another PLaYTiMe QuiLT for the gift box.
This is the same pattern I wrote about in a post HeRe... however this time I added
the appliqued words "PLAY" & " TIME" & some playtime friends... to the top & bottom borders.
I'm really HaPPy with how this one turned out too... it's really quite pretty.

I used my stash once again...
so another project has been added to my list...
I'm also linking this project to Sharon's Lets Book It Challenge.
You can visit Vroomans Quilts... HeRe.

As I am babysitting my 2 grandies I really don't get much time to sew. But this is just for now & after my holiday I will be back in the cubbyhole with vigour.
This month I only finished off 2 items... a Pudding Cushion AND a knitted Jumper... although I did complete another block for our House & Garden block swap.

THANK YOU to Peg and Kris for motivating us each and every month.

FiNisHeD KniTTinG

I have had this pattern for some time and I finally got to use it... Yeah
Last month I started knitting... but this month I actually finished the jumper.
Sharon hosts LeTs BooK It... you can read all about LBI over HeRe... And I love playing along with her and her friends each month.

I knitted with a pretty "red" coloured yarn & the pattern was a NiCe easy one to knit at night.
Thanks SHaRoN for the encouragement each & every month to use up those "books" sitting collecting dust. I'm pretty sure this jumper will be seen on a little grandie really soon.
I really just need to wrap it up... & give it to her.
This jumper pattern is called Oh So Cute and I'm knitting it in 8 ply.
You can join in Lets Book It... by simply clicking on over to HeRe.

I grabbed a few hours yesterday & spent them in my cubbyhole.
I finished a small Christmas Cushion which measures 10 inch x 12 inch.
I made the front with a PLuM PuDDinG appliqued on it & stitched a border around the centre piece.
I used the same border fabric for the back.
I'm very HaPPy with how it turned out.
I will eventually place a pattern on my web page.

I used my stash/scraps to complete this item... so another project was added to the list...

A BLocK & A WiNNeR

It's marvellous what you can accomplish when two grandies are at day care...
I mentioned a "House & Garden" block swap I am in with ladies from our guild... in a post here... & as we made & swapped 10 blocks, I needed 1 of my own block for my quilt.
This is the one I finished... it just needs a good press... so with the others it now waits.
