heads up


I have begun blanket stitching the blanket - it's going well and much faster than I thought (always good!)



Despite generally working on a few hand sewing projects (rose stars, cross stitch and some embroidery) I did get a chance to work on some Bee blocks.


These are for Carol in the Simply Solids Bee, she supplied the fabric and they were super easy, fun blocks to do.


This one is scrappy for Helen in Scrappy? Sew Bee It. Seeing all the bright blocks the other members have made I think this is going to be a stunning quilt!


The 'heads up' is a couple of cool internet things going on...

Christa is having a quilt-along for her gorgeous 'Hugs 'n Kisses' quilt. You can get all the info on her blog and there are great giveaways every week!

Quilt kits are available at ChristaQuilts and the pattern is very jelly roll friendly.


If you like embroidery you should also check out the Sublime Stitching website - they have a brilliant new free pattern! Very 'boy friendly' too.


So above and beyond the sewing I have been spending a lot of time nourishing this little one... except she's not so little and at only 5 weeks old she nearly doesn't fit on the change mat!!


I also got some great shots of her in the embroidered outfit, add your own captions ;)

  3. I think your last little WIP is the best of all...what a cutie with her chubby cheeks...and her little tuft of hair! Brings back some fun memories of my babies...who are not that any more.

    Visiting from WIP Wednesday. Have a great day.

  5. The block pieces look great, both the solids and the one with prints! Your blanket stitch looks like it's coming along nicely, as well!

    Your baby is just too darling. I am glad she is growing, and is healthy and happy!

    All my best to you!

  11. She still has a Mohawk! Love the scrappy block, and the sensible people who knew what they were talking about were obviously right about the blanket stitch!

  16. Way to crank out those blocks! I'm a tad worried that look of concentration in the last pic means that she'll need to be using what she's lying on shortly!

  23. Wow, Lucy, she's huge! I think the caption would be "Look Mum, my tummy has grown this much! Can I have some more?"
