Charity Makes for 2011

I have yet to do the eyes and nose and sew up the seam, but it is the first attempt at the simple 3 piece bear, work in progress.
Side shot. I am happy so far with the roundness of the tummy but the face needs work. I think I need to curve the front of the face more and make the ears more to the side. I think at the moment it is looking a little mouse like.

5 Years Old

Tomorrow I will be having my son back home after his holidays and also i am invited to a friends 5 year old Grand Daughters Birthday. This little girl loves flowers so i have made her a necklace and bracelet set.

Opp Shopping

While my daughter was here, we did one of our favourite things Opp Shopping! these are my bargains. This wonderful book was only $3.00. Some really lovely fresh country looks in this book.
This cushion insert, brand new, I will be able to use as filling for toys. Much needed at the moment until I can go to the Pillow Factory to buy a large bag.

Charity Makes for 2011

Crochet blanket a hat and booties and currently working on a jacket to match. The Jacket will have the blues and purples in it too. Notice the background? A long awaited and much needed new ironing board cover, Lovely and bright.


I have been absent from blogging for a while, and this is the reason, My daughter came down from where she lives near Bathurst. She drove down all by herself. She has gone back home now and is back home safe and sound, driving such a long way, 9 hours with breaks. My nieces daughter was Christened this Sunday and it was such a lovely special event. The weather was perfect!
This is one of the things i made her, a wrap over cardi with crochet trim. I was unable to finish it on time cos on one sleeve the wool is not the same colour! A caution to those who knit at night. look at the yarn carefully. I had made two pairs of booties and a pair of mittens that i was able to give her on the day. I just have to re do the sleeve then i can give this to her too.

Charity Makes for 2011

25 pairs of wings have been cut out. I am changing the pattern because i was worried about little bits possibly being chewed. So, to adapt it for my purpose I am going to sew the wings directly onto the body. I have ironed on interfacing first to stabilize the fabric and then cut them out.

Charity Makes for 2011

25 Little Bird bodies sewn. I have used safety eyes on most of them. Sewing the wings today. Hopefully i will get my hands on some stuffing soon. This woolen fabric is a dream to work with, lovely and soft and easy to cut.
