Crafty catch-up

How does 6 weeks go so quickly? All my new found 'I will blog regularly' resolutions have amounted to nothing. Anyway I have been crafting recently so thought I'd do a catch-up show and tell post!

Firstly a gift for my good, non-blogging friend Anita:




















A toadstool pincushion inspired by Karen and tutorial from The Little House by the Sea, some cherry stitch markers from an Etsy seller, a covered retractable tape measure, all packaged in a lined drawstring bag (fabric from Spotty).


A travel play mat for Anita's new baby Jack. Fabric is Michael Miller, and I quilted along the raods with invisible thread, which was a pain. I actually bought the fabric to make a play mat for Sam, who is now 18 months old!
































Some easy peasy ruffle tops for Maddie, fabric from my scrap basket.

I know the feelings - days turn to months before you know it! Looks like you've had a productive time of it - I'd love to email you soon, and praps we could meet for a latte somewhere? C

Thank you so much for my lovely things T - I just love using my Toadstool pin cushion you clever thing you. You inspire me to try new crafty projects every day and amaze me that you do so much with 2 kids to chase around after too. I'm still trying to figure out how to make the time!
