Thank you so much to Beth for my Liebster award! I'm going to have a think and will pass it on later this week.

We're now a week back into term, and I can't decide when I have less time for sewing - holidays tend to get filled up with mundane things like cooking to fill the freezer and coursework, and termtime is just totally and utterly manic. I also think that I should probably spend more time on the housework rather than sewing, my mum described the house as looking "fine" last time that she was here - never a good thing!

All in all, sewing time has been limited. I've managed a few bits recently though, such as a pot holder housewarming present for my best friend made from my reunion charm pack - she's just moved into a stunning flat on the edge of the Olympic Park - I ran out of time to photograph the holder though.

I'm working on a handbag for a wedding on the bank holiday weekend too, I've got a gorgeous (and relatively cheap!) dress from Dotty P's so I decided to make a matching bag using the navy raindrops fabric and a kit from u~handbag. Hopefully pics of this will follow soon!

I do have pictures of my latest finish though, a baby blanket for my friend's little boy who is due any day I used the tutorial at fairyface designs, but made a few alterations - mainly because I was too lazy to bind it so i just flipped it inside out and topstitched. I also made rounded corners, I wasn't planning to but they called out to me whilst I was watching the Apprentice!

PS - please excuse the dodgy phone pics, I know this post wouldn't go up til next week if I waited to use the laptop!


  1. It looks great! Love the fabrics. Can't wait to see those other items =D

  2. looka good ... I am sure mum and baby will love it x

  3. Love the blanket and look forward to seeing the other bits :)
