UFO finished.

We all have UFOs. Some are because we lost the pattern, or ran out of fabric, or fell out of love with the project or we just couldn't work out how to finish it. Well this project was the latter. I couldn't work out how to finish my pillow cases, so they've sat for at least 2 years.

When APQ released  the 2017 UFO challenge these became my January project.  So proud to say they are finished ... not perfect, just finished.

I'm sure I had many plans for these but I decided to hem them and be done. 

Maybe not as pretty as they could have been but now they'll get used.

So that's a second OPAM for January and one item off the list.

Catch you again soon.

January gift finish

I cannot believe that January is almost over.
This is my first finish. It has been finished for a couple of weeks but it was a gift that I gave yesterday, so I am now safe to reveal.
This yarn cross stitch is based on the pattern "Let's have fun with Yarn" by Ursula Michael Designs from here.  The original design was for a knitter so I changed out the needles and a few of the words to suit my fibre spinning, yarn loving, crochet girl.

I love how it came out and I think she does too.

See you again soon (I hope)

When colouring in becomes sewing

This little sewing project was finished out of necessity.
My youngest son needed a bag for his clarinet music. He has been colouring this piece of Pokemon material on and off for a few months and decided it would make a good bag.
It is fully lined it with a great flame fabric, so if we need to or want to it is fully reversible.
Now E just needs to finish colouring. 
This is OPAM 8 for December.
See you soon.

A pillowcase for you & you & you

I decided the children on my gift list would receive a personalised pillowcase this year as my boys love the ones they received last year.  So after a few text messages with the Mums we have 6 pillow cases for 6 special people.

L-R Blue LEGO FAN, Purple girlie girl, Blue camping girl, Orange piano player, Green bike loving boy & Green LEGO fan.

The LEGO pillows were the hardest as Lego fabric is hard to find in my part of the world, so I ended up printing colourful silhouettes on fabric & appliqueing them on. I think they look cute.

I do particularly love the photo of them all wrapped & stacked.

Handmade Christmas.
