Sew, Knit and Natter Friday!

How is everyone? Apparently it’s the first day of Autumn if you are a weather person. Personally its late Summer as far as I am concerned.

So big question, did I or did I not buy some Cath Kidston fabric. YES I DID. Well you knew I would.

8 fat quarters for £12, which I thought was ok. See the cowboy fabric in the middle. As it happens I had a remnant of that already ,bought from somewhere or other some time ago, and looking for a project. Well it found one, I have it all cut out and ready to go, but then found myself feeling sad because I had used it. I mean just how ridiculous is that? I think I mentioned before that I have a propensity for being ridiculous. So that is why when I choose which CK fabric to buy, this was the bundle. IT HAD MY NAME ON IT!

Meantime I have been busy with some owl fabric.

Which is now a pouch for baby wipes. Owl buttons and ribbons from my stash. I mean you can’t have too many owls in one project , can you? Can You? Have I gone OTT on owls? Feel quite pleased with this, never having made a pouch before.

Knitting wise, I am making great progress with the baby blue cardigan.

A back and two fronts resting on the cowboy project. I still don’t have a picture of Little Miss F in her skirt, maybe it doesn’t fit, but I do have two of my little darlings to show you , and the children are quite nice too..

On holiday in Devon, picture by my DIL Mrs T!

And just to round off, here’s the Sunset over the hill at the front of our house, I wonder can you see the sheep?

Just about spot one under the tree to the right by the telegraph pole above the hedge. I do make you work..

And just because this is so cute

Little Miss F’s idea of heaven, Mum and a unicorn, don’t believe me, look at her little face.

Pictures by her other Nana, taken at a garden centre at Lacock.

Hope you have a great weekend full of the things you love doing.

Be Happy!

Scrap Happy- May 2016

I have been having such a great time with my fabric scraps. First of all I made a ball for a  new baby.

Newburgh priory April 2016 006

I have seen patterns for this in at least two books, including Patch by Cath Kidston. Next I made a birth congratulations card.

27.4.16 016

I had everything I needed for this card. The pram is made of scrap of lace.  The idea for this came from a book called Handmade Gift Cards By Cheryl Owen, details https://www.amazon.co.uk/Handmade-Gift-Cards-Step-

I am continuing with the hexie quilt, and although I have plenty of hexies left I need some more variety in the fabric. So I need to get stitching some of the projects in my to do list.

Sunday Sevens

A series of seven pictures from my week inspired by Natalie’s idea at Threads and Bobbins

Several years ago I made number 2 son Mr J a picnic blanket. He gave it to his new puppy last year, which upset number one grandson Master H, no blanket, no more picnics?  Only one solution.

Nana make a  new picnic blanket.Most of the yarn came from my stash of unfinished yarn.

14.2.16 002

I was lucky enough to get the book Sew by Cath Kidston for Christmas and I have started to make the bag which came with it.

14.2.16 003

And I am gradually getting to grips with knitting cables.

14.2.16 004

Sadly the cardi won’t be ready in time for Master T’s 5th birthday, but that can’t be helped.

The pot hole/road repair saga continues, fixing gear left on our drive throughout the week!

These tete a tete daffodils were bought last year as a supermarket bargain at 50p after Mother ‘s Day. Pleased that they have come up in our garden this year.

Burton Agnes Hall, snowdrops Feb 2016 033

Whilst we were visiting Burton Agnes Hall this week, we had a wander round the church. It had some lovely box pews inside and some rather grand Yew trees in the churchyard.

And here in England it is half term week, holidays, lovely!! Have a super week everyone.
