A Thank You, A Bee, and a little bit of me :)

First up, This is Kellie's Bee block for May in the Australasian Bee, She sent out a 10" square of batting with a Heather Ross piece spray basted to the centre, and a whole bunch of strips, With a request to follow the instructions from the Sew Take a Hike, Quilt as you go, Quilt along. But to do a 'riot of colour' and a little wonkiness would be great. So I did, I loved making this, the fabrics were beautiful and the colours so much fun!

I would love to use this method for a wall hanging or cushion, (just added it to my super list!)

Secondly, A Thank You!!!!! to Jess from JK Creations!! I was lucky enough to win a runners up prize in her May Day Give Away, Jess sent along the beautiful Blossom hair clips for my girls so they wouldn't take off with my new purse!! So far it is working :) 

Next up, In continuation of my marathon sewing efforts the last week or so, I whipped up a pair of cords for Miss Charlotte, using my go to kids pants pattern Burda 9706, this pair have an elastic back with flat front waistband, as, at almost 9 Miss C is getting a little old for the full elastic treatment! 

The pants were crazy busy, so I added a little scotty dog applique to the bottom of one leg. Of course now that they are "doggy pants" Charlotte doesn't want to take them off!!
There has been a couple of other sewing finishes here this week, including a winter coat for Charlotte, which I will do a post about when I finish the other 3! and a cute little winter dress for Miss Jocie, which I just need to get a pic of her in before I post!

One last thing, Mark's second round of our little Dessert War's, resulted in these absolutely delicious Jam Doughnut Muffin's (Don't tell him I said so, but I think he is winning!! )


  1. Wow, that is going to be one crazy quilt when all the blocks arrive at their destination. I know what you mean about adding to the never-ending list of projects!

    I love the 'doggy pants'! Where did you get that fab cord from? It's wonderful. And, yes, I'm grateful that elastic pants are still king here :)

    MMMMMMMMM those muffins sure look gooooood!

  2. Love that the muffins look like they're smiling:-)

  3. The square turned out beautifully! And the muffins...oh they look yummy!
