Craftroom Clean Up

I don't know how long it took me. Felt like FOREVER but finally got some order back in the craft-room. A lot of stuff went to Op-Shops and Good Will bins. I've got to stop A: Hanging onto everything and B: buying more fabric, felt and wool. MUST start using what I have. Looking forward to sewing something. No idea what, but hope inspiration will strike soon. Happy making.

Baby Buntings

There's Chloe in Glasgow.
Timmy in Castlemain
Reilly in Flemington
Howie in Yarraville
Alberta in Geelong

and they all need a little Welcome To The World Hope You Like It gift. I found this pattern in the new Simple Softies For The Whole Family published by Penguin. They were so quick to make and each one has a lovely bell firmly stuffed into its head (not as painful as it sounds). Next stage; pack them up and post them. I hope their wee hands wave them high.

  • Saturday by Ian McEwan
