Knee-size quilt

I'm very excited, I spotted this fabric over the weekend and have decided to quilt it for a really special someone's bday coming up.  I'll publish the finished product once I've completed it. I'm about 1/4 of the way - I'm topstitching every block, but with the quilt-stitch on the machine.  it does go much quicker than hand topstitching, however it's still a back-breaker :-). Loving every minute!!

Finished quilt


I received this orchid from Ken, about a month ago. I'm very chuffed with myself I haven't managed to kill it off yet :-)

Whilst sewing my daughter Calin, found my fabric pen and decided to leave a message on my t-shirt: :-)

Car Tidy

I've been wanting to make this for a long time and finally got to it.  I think it is such a cool idea to tie onto the back of one of the front seats for baby/toddlers toys; bottles; sippy cups; etc etc.  The only thing missing here is i'd like to add embellishments - however, I don't want them too finicky, because I want to be able to just throw this in the washing machine, when it needs a wash and not worry too much about finicky embellishments. 
Now my daughters have cottoned onto the idea and they'd like tidies for inside their cupboards for underwear or socks..... so that is the next step......
