Picking up La Passacaglia

Playing again .....

a couple of filler blocks to help square off the bottom right

She now looks like this

If your on Instagram I can be found under "lilabellelane"

It's good to get back into this one. I have actually missed it!

Until next time,

A new Mini


Thursdsay morning I had a lovely catch up with the gorgeous Fiona 
who blogs over at Bendigo Lioness.  Fiona and I have met through the wonderful
world of Instagram.

We sat, enjoyed our Coffee and ate a yummy morning tea that Fiona brought over
 and chatted all things sewing :o)

Perfect way to spend a few hours.

Fiona also surprised me and spoiled me with a new Mini :)

 and Chocolate.

Huge thank you Fiona xx

(and thank you Instagram for a beautiful friend I may not have found without you)

I think I need to go and unpack my other Minis now and get my Mini Wall back up :o)

Hugs, Sharon

A Foxie Finish

"Fancy Foxes"

An Adorable Fox pattern + Daysail by Bonnie and Camille + Essex Linen and quilted with a Woodgrain pattern = PURE LOVE

Back from the quilters and binding is on. I'm calling it a Wrap!

I love this one so much. 
It is up on the wall already in my new (yet to be organised Sewing Space) just waiting for me.

I am so pleased that I sent it out to be quilted. I love the texture of the Woodgrain quilting and I love the way that the Essex Linen makes the Dailsail fabrics pop.

Eventually my sewing table will be positioned right here under the Foxes

.The "Fancy Foxes" pattern can be found over HERE.
I'm thinking that I might play with Hazel Hedgehog soon.

Available HERE.

Thanks for popping by and until next time,
hugs Sharon

Ripple Love

I took advantage of our cooler weather over the weekend to finish off my Ripple Blanket


Three trips around and it was done, 8 weeks after I started it :o)
When I first learnt to crochet I knew I wanted to make a ripple blanket
so it now feels so good to have accomplished that task and to also have it be
my first big blanket.

It's BIG.  Here it is on a Single Bed and below on a Queen for size reference.

I nearly didn't add the border but so glad that I did.
The pattern for this one can be found HERE at Attic24 and if you
want to duplicate one exactly, Lucy has a link on her blog for a Yarn Pack.

Now I can turn my attention back to my growing Sunburst Granny.

Until next tine.
