WIP some projects for my kiddies
I am full of lurgy so I'm actually pretty happy with what I've managed this week! I made this cute fabric matching game, super easy and they LOVE it :)
Yeah I thought I'd throw some vegetables in there ;)
I used the excellent tutorial from Lindsay at The Cottage Home - I have to say hers are so much cuter and she takes much better pictures than me so go look!
I have finally sewn the rows for my Pezzy quilt so I need to put them together and sew a border!
I have also done all the cutting for the Stained QAL.
Another Rose Star complete (yes I cut into a bit of the DS my friend gave me):
and a new project! I started doing some embroidery last night - for the FIRST TIME! I've done the odd bit but always on stuff not where it's actually the point.
This is my practice, I didn't want it to be a waste so I'm doing a cute little pattern from Sublime Stitching that will hopefully look ok enough to put in my daughter's room - really she's already in love and would have it like it is!! My son has also already put in his request so this won't be the last.
I never knew the name of any stitches and just made it up whenever I had to sew a name on something or whatever, but now I'm ready to learn. I have some instructions that came with the pattern so I'm going to try all the different stitches and see how I get on!
Between this new found fun and the wonderful hand stitching rose star blocks, it's no wonder I'm hardly going near my machine! That hot water bottle has nothing to do with my lounging on the sofa, honest ;)
new projects: 1
in progress: 4
In the post today I received my win from the Fat Quarter Shop. Yes they are that fast to the UK! Yes that's part of why I shop with them - plus the excellent choice, service and all round brilliantness!
I really want to find a special pattern to use with these 15 fat quarters :)

I'm linking up to Lee's fantastic WIP Wednesdays at Freshly Pieced, which although I love always tends to make me get behind on my blog reading!! Hope to catch up very soon :)
