Scrap & Stash Busting.

I'm ever-so-slowly working through my "to-do" and "want to-do" lists, but they are still a mile long! 
In no particular order:

On the hook, another little cardigan for Jocelyn, this will probably have 3/4 length sleeves, to avoid excess wetness of clothing (she is drooling/sucking on everything!). I'm using the leftover yarn from the big girls beanies.

A doll quilt for Laura, using the scraps from her own quilt, and a cute little Beatrix Potter patch. I am winging this, I have no plan at all, and it is all quite rough really, but I wanted to practise a few techniques and experiment a bit, and I'm doing it so that's the main thing!

Next up a pile of P.j pants for all the girls, all ready for the first pass through the machine, I'm definitely going construction line style with these!  I  bought a heap of Flannelette last year on clearance, I think it was less then a $1 a metre, Anyway all that material was taking up valuable storage space, so it had to used.  

And finally a Finish!,  A Pincushion organiser, made with the scraps of my first quilt, (which i will never ever show on here, It's just too embarrassing, though I was very proud of it at the time!) It may not look great but it is functional, I especially love the little scrap bin, perfect for a messy person like me! And of course I love how it sits on the arm of my chair or on my sewing table just right!


  1. Your pincushion organiser is great.

  2. That, is one fantastic pin cushion organiser!

  3. Love the Beatrix Potter patch - that is going to be gorgeous.

  4. All of these are great, I wish I was more crafty!
