Two projects done!!

Well I haven't been very well recently, hayfever and asthma don't go together!!

After a little time off from everything I got started with my two cushions I've been commissioned to do and my laundry bin liner.

Two projects now ticked off the list.

The cushions are for friends who have two little boys and wanted some customised cushions for them.

The laundry bin liner was done for my new laundry bin that my husband made from spare wood he had. He's very talented!!

Now I just have to finish my other projects!!

Sew much to do, Sew little time to do it!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I have about a million projects all on the go at the moment!!!! Well maybe not quite a million but you know how it feels.

I'm still crocheting away at my granny square blanket, hopefully it won't be too long before I can show you the finished product. I saw Gemmipops post last Wednesday and her blanket is looking great I only hope mine turns out half as good!!

I have just started knitting a little baby jacket as I'm going to be an auntie again in a few weeks time, exciting stuff!!

I need to make a lining bag for my new laundry bin that my husband has made me from some spare wood he had lying about.

I'm in the middle of making a birthday pressie for my step daughter, can't tell you what it is though just in case she's reading this!!! (Hi Joanna!!)

I've also started a Christmas pressie, yes I said Christmas pressie, for my nieces!! I thought I'd be good this year so instead of just saying I'll start making the presents early so I'm not rushing it all in Nov and Dec I actually would make them early. I have loads of people to make for so hopefully I can get them all done well before Nov then I can just concentrate on enjoying the festive season and start making myself some Christmas decorations, which is what I want to do every year but never have the time!!

Oh, I've also just been commissioned to make a couple of personalised cushions. So I need to source the fabric for that and crack on with it!!

Hopefully it won't be too long before I have one of these projects finished so I can show you all what they look like.

Fancy a Cuppa??

I'm not a tea fan myself but the rest of my family are. I found that Tea Cosy's make a great gift. They are really easy and fun to make.

Below is just one of the Tea Cosy's I have made. This was a birthday pressie for my sister!

Reindeer Toy

Here is the reindeer I made for my niece Emily at Christmas.


I was reminded of it today when babysitting so thought I'd share it with you all. The pattern is from the 'Sew Pretty Homestyle' book.

Wool Storage Basket

I decided to make a fabric basket to store the wool I'm currently working with instead of it being strewn all over the sofa!!

I added a pocket to keep my scissors and crochet needle in!

Crochet Blanket

Last week a friend at work taught me how to crochet. I have since put this in practice and used up some little balls of wool I had by making granny squares!!

The blanket is now taking shape but I think I still have a long way to go before it's finished!!

I've used up all the pink and cream wool I had so I'm now introducing a new colour. Its actually more purple than it looks like in the pic.

I have just visited 'Gemmipop designs' blog and she is also making a granny squares blanket. She has introduced some flowery squares into hers which are
lovely. I'm hoping she will share the pattern with me so I can give it a go!! Hopefully my next update will be my first attempt at a flowery square!!

Here we go, my first flowery square!! It took a lot longer to do than I thought but now i have the hang of it hopefully my next few won't take so long!
