Quick Weekend Sewing

I've been dying to make the shaggy quilt - but because I didn't have a lot of time, I only cut 4 blocks to sew together and see how it would come out.... i'm very pleased with the results:

Roxy has to try out her new quilt too :-)

Little Aprons

I made 5 of these little aprons for my daughter Calin. She's started a little business where she baby-sits children.  Their parents go to Al Fiume restaurant for lunch and Calin is baby sitter to all the littlies while mom and dad have a lovely lunch alongside the Hennopsriver.  I made the aprons so their clothes are protected whilst they are finger painting or whatever else messy they may get up to:

I added a little pocket to each little apron.

Baby Teddy Quilt

This quilt I made for a friend of mine, Mandy, having her 1st little boy Cayden. I finished it in Feb, just in time for Mandy's baby shower.  I top stitched all the teddies by hand, and added a blue ribbon for effect also.  Kept the little pillow case as plain as possible:

Lavendar sachets

This is happening on my kitchen windowsill: I don't know what this little plant is, but it's little white flowers I just love :-)
I want to try and make little lavender sachets, so I've picked the flowers from my Spanish lavender bush and leave them to dry out for a couple of days:

 This is how much of the dried lavender flowers I got - awesome, i'll be able to make a few small sachets.  Will post as soon as I've made those.  I'm hoping to tackle these, this weekend:
The smell in my kitchen is just amazing - and this is soo simple to do - love it!

These were the burp cloths I made - the blue and pink ribbon too lovely.

Quilts for twin girls

My friend Amor is having twin girls around end April 2013.  At her baby shower on Saturday 2.02.2013, I was proud to present her with the following gifts I made:

the Theme was pink and green

Luckily I found lovely fabric that reads "Princess" in pink and green which went beautifully
Baby Shower day:

Bean bags

I made these beanbags within an hour on Sunday morning for my youngest daughter Calin, who will be looking after kiddies at Al Fiume Restaurant at River Place, over lunch times now. Really chuffed with how nicely they came out.  I got this fabric from the monthly stashes of  , one of my favourite fabric shops!
