Fairy at the bottom of my garden

I can now show what I have been working on for the past few weeks, a little woodland fairy made as a Christmas pressie for a good friend ........ she has now arrived at her new home in Australia.

Work in progress

I haven't posted much lately, but I have been busy making swaps and Chrissy pressies so I can't show them yet. Here is a redwork I started a while ago, also a doll that has been hanging around waiting for her veggies to be made, still got the carrots to do. One day she will be finished and hanging on my kitchen wall.

I love to use up scraps of fabric and one way is making pincushions. Here is just a few..... mostly made as swaps in our Yahoo pincushion group, which is fun.

A selection of past makes

Mini Quilt

Here's a little quilt I finished this week... been 4 years in the making! The 4" log cabin blocks were sewn by hand by foundation piecing. The putting together was by machine and then I tied all layers. Good use of fabric scraps from other projects. Now I won't feel guilty buying more fabric tomorrow at the Stitching Show.

More Halloween

I don't usually do the same thing twice, but I enjoyed making these pincushions so much I went mad and did a few... the one without the hat is much smaller than the other two. They will make a great Halloween display.

Halloween pincushion

I seem to be on a roll with Halloween stuff... funny as we don't celebrate here in UK as much as in US. This is a pincushion ornie made for a swap in a pincushion group I belong to. On its way to Australia now!! I stained some bright orange polycotton to make the pumpkin and did the witches hat with painted calio and rusty wire round, then trimmed with a brown painted cotton bobbin tied with raffia. Oh and of course added some pins!! Think I may make one for myself too!! or anyone that would like one!! lol....

Halloweenin' Annie

Just finished this Halloween Annie... don't you just love her little cat and pumpkin trick or treat bag!! Watch out for another one like her, as this one is off to Texas!!
