Stuff


Ive been really slack on the blogging side of things lately,
 just busy with life i guess
 but ive managed to squeeze in a  little bit of sewing.
Ive been making another pinwheel quilt
 just in case our friends have a girl.
 I just love it when those pesky little points line up
...sometimes they do
...and sometimes they dont!
Ive also sewed a little pressie in the form of a lingerie washing bag!
 Pretty cute huh? I love playing with free motion embroidery,
 it is a lot of fun.

and i made myself this skirt .
I used the Make it Perfect wrap skirt pattern.
Very easy
I finished it a bit different to the instructions
 and think it is rather lovely,


   i think
it needs a doiley though.
Thats better,
Hope youre having a lovely Sunday! x

Loving everything here... espcially the wash bag. I have a friend that that would be perfect for... perhaps I'll have a go at making one for her chrissy gift. Thanks for the inspiration.

Lots of lovely things going on in your part of the world! I especially love the doily on your skirt. I've got a few doily improved items of clothing and I love them.

Your Pinwheel Quilt reminds me of the one which I started for my niece when she was born - she`s 16 now and it`s still not finished so I`m going to dig it out and complete it for my Grandaughter!When I look at it, I can`t quite believe I had the time and patience to make it!I absolutely love your skirt too, the colour is so pretty.

Goodness me Melissa! What fabulous makes! You really are super talented! I finally tried free motion embroidery yesterday after being frightened of it for years. It was every bit as bad as I thought it would be. I must have done something wrong because my machine snarled up horribly! I so want to be able to do it and make beautiful things like your bag. So lovely. Your skirt is beautiful. Love everything about it. Lots of love, Amanda xxxx

I love your makes, the skirt looks great on you. I really love your laundry bag, so sweet. I once tried to do free motion embroidery, it was a disaster!

What a beautiful skirt!

Im doing a pinwheel quilt at the moment (in pastels no less which is a real stretch for me ) an I can completely relate on the points thing. I hear you can quilt that out sweetie! I'm hoping thats true!

And it's fabulous that you can share your talent with your friends and family - what a gift!

Yes the doily makes it perfect! I'm hoping to glean some of your talent through some virtual osmosis experiment. I love your stuff Melissa. Just having another look at your blog this morning.
