Not sure about this one....

She fits into my kitchen well but not too sure about this From a Sweet Meadow Farms pattern I think I like how I did the pie more than I did the

Big Fella....

This guy is HUGE......he didnt take as much stuffing as I thought, and I loved making him, he is gorgeous

Prim ornaments

I felt like making more stuff for me for around the home, I go through spurts like that, so I made a welcome banner and a stitched "roulade"

Kitty Kats

These are both from a soft in the head pattern, Im not normally a cat lover but these I loved, very quirky with alot of personality.

Swap Belindy

Here is another Belindy I made for a swap....Ill be making this doll in my sleep soon but she is alot of fun to make

Finally done..............

I have been working on this quilt for awhile now. I finished all my blocks before Christmas but have been putting off the inevitable....sewing it all together. I was down to my last three days of holidays before heading back to work so I made myself sit down and get it donw. I dont know why I was worrying, I only had to unpick What a relief and now I am starting on a candlewick one..

Last one

Finally made something for me, an altered canvas for my bedroom


My daughters 16th birthday is coming up so I wanted to make some little things to put in with her parcles, she wants to be a doctor and is in her 2nd to alst year of school so I made her a tag book of inspirational quotes, a little photo display and finally a small scrapbook that I didnt put photos in, Ive left it up to her to add her own pics.

Using scraps

I wanted something nice to hang on my front door (Ive made a few things overtime but never happy with so I made this with a coat hanger and the "gross" fat quarters I had that I didnt like...I think it turned out quite well

Pinnie Swap

This is the gorgeous Pinnie I received from Amy, she owns Frogs to Fairy Dust and has some lovely patterns. The pinnie was too nice to use so I made myself the little mouse to go next to it

Catching Up

Ive been on the quiet side creating and starting and Australian Altered Arts Yahoo group which has been fun. Ive been involved in some swaps, here is a Belindy doll I made for a friend, I love this pattern, it is an oldie from Veenas
