March Finish


My first Santa Snack Mat for the Grandies.  I have one more to make for Christmas 2021.

Still sewing

 Well, I don't know if this will be a Christmas present for a niece or someone else. It is the outer cover of a little sewing case. I'm making the case up as I go along I started the outer sewing on a day course with Angela Daymond. She designs a lot of Kantha projects and is a lovely teacher.

I have also been knitting socks as that is easier for my eyes. I hope to get to the opticians after my second jab. Fine work is out, too many headaches and having to stop frequently.

Happy sewing

March: Christmas Flurries

How is everyone's list going?
I have a big finish for March and I'm not sure
where, or to whom, it will be going but it will
definitely be coming out for the holidays!

"Christmas Flurries" (71x71)

I am not a fan of the paper-piece quilting method
but I do love anything with snow and snowflakes
so when I came across this pattern I thought,
Oh why not?

A few weeks into it, I knew all-too-well why not
but I persisted for a few more weeks and I can
now share with you the result.  It's easier to
say now that I'm very glad I chose this one!

I have no idea what I'll be working on for my
next Christmas item but I'll be seeing you all
back here in April with...uh....something!
(Something simpler!!)

March Madness

 My gorgeous little family have moved back to their own lives and my home is super quiet now. So the knitting came out of hiding and I finished off this wash cloth. 

Happy March makes everyone 🎄

This roomy & open bag will be great for keeping/carrying projects in then being able to FiND any item inside. 
I think it will make a great gift for Christmas too.
Now I call that a WiN WiN situation...
If you want the BAG details...

I'm late, I'm late.....

 My covid vaccine knocked me out of action for a week. Then the weather slightly improved and I concentrated getting some seeds sewn and my allotment prepped ready for the growing season. Not a lot of time to sew but I did enjoy this Gum Drop Tree.  I have taken liberties with the embellishments, to suit my supplies.

I need to get cracking on this months whilst we have a couple of drizzly days.

I also need to catch up on all the other February additions.

Happy sewing
