ThiS WeeK

I made a couple of NeW BoRN baby bibs... 1 for Miss S & 1 for Master C.
I used flannel on both sides of them for absorbency.
If you want the FREE pattern...go on over to my web page HERE... & click on Baby/Children.
These bibs are only small so are PeRFecT for newborns.
* * * * *

I also got busy with the roller cutter & cut 5 1/2in squares. I'm making a small "frilly" flannel cuddle blanket for the cot. I've been collecting flannel fats for awhile so I have plenty of variety. I hope whichever little one is underneath it during the colder months, enjoys a peaceful contented sleep at Nanna's.  Stayed tuned...
* * * * *

Worked on my WSS ( Wonky Star Scrappy) quilt too... adding the 2 1/2 inch sashings & corner stones. I'm loving this quilt so far... & there is still 2 borders to add.  so Stay tuned here as well...

After FNSI

Last night was very productive in my little cubbyhole.
I worked on my Wonky Star Scrappy Quilt...

I made the last block...#20 of  different coloured 10 1/2 inch blocks.
It's in pretty mauves/purples.
Then I cut out & stitched Bow Tie blocks for my WIP quilt as well.
I'm linking this post to So Scrappy blog over here for the RSC2015.
This month is colour 5 &... yes you guessed it... it's  GReeN.
Thanks Wendy for allowing me to play with you & your friends.

My WeeK

I've had a good week in the cubbyhole...aka sewing room.
I made a "Taggie Toy" for Miss Sophie...
And one for Master Cooper...
And 2 more for "boys" & 2 extra ones for "girls"... just in case!
If you would like to make a rectangular "taggie" visit my web page here for the FREE instructions. Just look under BABY/CHILDREN.  I'll write triangular shape instructions asap.
* * * * *

A double sleeping bag for Chloe's "babies"... Baby & Emma... was sewn together as well
This was an idea stolen originated by Fiona over here... which I just LoVed !
I tested the size first by making 1 to stay here for when little visitors come over.
I used up leftover binding strips for this one... & a little flannel.
It fits this "baby" perfectly too... with room for a friend...
* * * * *
Finished off another Gail Pan embroidery tracing as well.
This will be a project to match the pin cushion shown here.
It's from Gail's book Patchwork Loves Embroidery.
I'm linking this post to SuperMomNoCape... over HERE
* * * * *
I've picked up the knitting needles again now it's cooler weather... passing the evenings sitting with hubby... sometimes watching a movie or some sport.
This time it's a pretty jacket for Chloe... & of course it's in pretty soft PiNK yarn.
* * * * *

And I'm linking the progress made on my Scrappy SnowBall quilt with Terry's Treasures blog...over HERE. This is a monthly SAL... & I'm a little WaY behind!
It may be a SMaLL start... BUT it's a STarT...
With more on the machine...

I hope you had a successful & productive week as well...
