I have a few things to show this week. The first was a present I made my niece for her 5th birthday...
I used the scraps from the hour glass quilt I have been making (still a work in progress!) to make this little dolls quilt with matching pillow, I also made a sheet to go with it and popped it all into a drawstring bag.
Freya and Finn went off for a few days with some friends of ours yesterday, this is a really big treat for them as it is only the second time they have been away without us (they went with the same friends last year). It Is sooo very quite without them this morning !.
Freya asked if I would make her a new bag to carry her day to day bits about in. She went up to my sewing room and chose the material that she wanted and designed this..
I think she chose great fabrics that work really well together , she is not really a pink or flowery girl, but loves green..
And of course she had to have a matching pencil case..
Lastly the two younger girls saw this ball in Anna Maria Horner's book - Seams to me..
So, here is my version, a bit fiddly, but they were very pleased with it..
Clemmie likes it because its 'squooshy'...
That's it for this week, I managed to have quite a productive week considering it has been half term here, but the nice weather helped, as the children just wanted to play outside all the time, and who am I to complain !
The house always seems tidier when the weather is nice, just think, if I lived in a hot country my house would be immaculate ! Now there's a thought...
