Well why not...

I gave the passport holder to my Mum yesterday. By this morning I had a phone call with the request of a matching camera case. So why not, this is what I whipped up after work today.

Have a good week.

I wish....

I was using these...
I made 5 in total, one has already been hijacked. I used a tutorial from here.
It very quick and easy and I am sure I will be making more.

Have a good weekend.

a few more photos...

Here are the quilts I was talking about in a past post.I have mainly female cousins, this was for the first cousin to have a bubba. They did not find out the gender while she was pregnant, so it was a hard task of piecing the quilt with a mix that would go either way. I waited till the baby was born before adding the borders. The name is just machine appliqued.
This was for a friends niece, just a simple one. It was the second part of her birth gift from her aunt, the first was Mrs Perkins below.

The quilt was a second request as the mother fell in love with the Kaffe Fassett fabric. Haven't we all!?

Until next time...

Cousins baby quilt - CHECK!
Friends nieces quilt - CHECK!
Mrs Perkins - CHECK!
I only have many Block of the Months to start/complete, a few softies and numerous ideas running around in my head.
My temporary sewing desk that was put in our study has past its used by date (by 2 years). It is actually a old camping fold up table and once I get into a sewing rhythm the table bounces!
Its time for a new table, more sturdy, more practical with more room to spread... which means more junk but hey I need it. So the search is on. Wish me luck!
