For the LOVE of .....

For the LOVE OF ........

"Happy Mail"


My "Miss Kate" FQ Bundle by Bonnie and Camille has arrived
and doesn't she just look right at home there with her bigger sisters :o)

I'm seeing a theme :o)

For the LOVE of ..... Bonnie and Camille

I've also mentioned before that I have joined this Bee.

In the last week I started working on my blocks.
We are to make each member of our Hive a 12.5" block or equivalent, 
in Bonnie and Camille fabrics.

I knew right from the start that I wanted to make these blocks.




Silly me though.  I had it in my head, 2 blocks a month for 6 months and it wasn't until after I made these that I realised we have 15 members in our hive. 

Looks like I will be making a couple more of each next week.  

I don't want to play favorites and pick who I send to first, so everyone will be getting their blocks at the same time and I then get to sit back for the next 6 months and await my happy mail blocks to arrive.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Seeing Spots - Sew Together Bag

The theme for a recent online swap was Spots.
I decided to make my secret partner Karen (no blog) a 

"Sew Together Bag"



In keeping with the Spots theme I added some embroidered spots on the front
and of course I've used some Bonnie and Camille :o)


I think these are great bags. 3 zipper pockets a needle landing and a pin cushion.
Not to mention the nice long zip that allows the bag to open right up.



Enjoy your new bag Karen. I enjoyed making it for you.

A crochet Finish





 African Flowers 
I have a Finished blanket.
My 2nd crochet blanket project is all finished and
I am so pleased with how it has turned out.


I decided that I wanted a soft lacy looking edge.
Not bad for a beginner and no pattern for the edge :)



I am super pleased with myself as that means that I am actually keeping to my own promise of not starting another Crochet project until one is finished.  But what now?
No crochet project on the go?
No there isn't but that's OK as this is my next project.


A much bigger project - Single bed size.
The wool is on its way and the pattern is downloaded.
Now to practice before it arrives. Wish me luck.

Hugs Sharon xx

La Passacaglia - Week 5

My addiction that is the

"La Passacaglia" 


Wow 5 weeks into this project already and I am still hooked as much as I was when I first started.

Last week I added some smaller block to start squaring one corner up.




Which got me to this stage.



Then this week I added another 3 Rosettes.




Last night I sat and finished adding the Rosettes and it now looks like this.


And the progress shot to show where I am up to and how much further I have to go.


Looks like it's time to dig out the Tula Pink fabrics and start some more Fussy Cutting.

New "Dilly Bag"

I picked up a couple of goodies last Saturday whilst at
Millrose Cottage in Ballan


Then on Sunday I started to make these.


Until I had all these.


They have been my portable project coming to ballet and school pick ups etc
until yesterday when I finished the first lot off in to this :o)


One Dilly Bag finished and a couple more to go.

Enjoy your Friday.
