Adorable fabric and OPAM

While at Gail B's I looked for some fabric for a swap.  It needed to have meaningful text.  Look what Christine found...isn't it wonderful.  I'll be back at Gail's in two weeks for my Stitching with Rosie class, I might just have to buy a fat quarter for myself as I can't stop looking at it.

I also bought a gorgeous Cosmo Seasons thread to hand quilt my secret squirrel sewing.

Only one little OPAM finish this month but never mind.  It is called One Project A Month after all.
Many thanks to sweet Peg and lovely Kris for organising OPAM for us.

If you like to knit you will be head over heals in love with this site - Claire Garland Knitting.  Claire is so generous in what she shares.
Little Alfie stole my heart but there is so much more.  Please take a look.  The knitted eyeballs fascinated me.  I wonder what will grab your attention?  Huge thanks to Claire.
Hope your day is filled with happiness.

Special little hexies

Last night I made a couple of special little hexies for my dilly bag.  I was given some samples of silk and these little motifs suit the colours in my dilly bag perfectly.  I love the ric rac flowers.

If you would like to be part of the super fun Dilly-Bag-a-Long pop over and visit fabulous Angie at Gnome Angel.

Today I have a LINK to a brilliant Embroidered Boxy Pouch.
There is a fabulous detailed tutorial and a wonderful technique for the embroidery.  Please visit super clever Nat's blog Made in Home for more.

Today I really am going out for a day of fun with Christine - I had to cancel out at the last minute yesterday.
Have a happy day

More secret stitching

I'm still happily stitching away on my secret squirrel project.  Here's a sneaky peak.
Once this one is finished it will be on to making a multitude of Christmas gifts and of course my monthly hexies for the Inchy Hexie Flower Swap. I feel like I'm on the home stretch.
If you pop over to Lil Luna you will find Kristyn's great tutorial HERE and you can make yourself some of these fabulous tea towels.
Lil Luna is a fabulous place to visit with a whole bunch of arts, crafts, freebies, tutorials and yummy recipes too.
Have a wonderful day

The Dilly-Bag-Along

I'm playing along with fabulous Angie from Gnome Angel in the Dilly-bag-along. Yesterday afternoon, at my Friday afternoon stitching group, I made my 36 whole hexies.  Just 12 half hexies to go.
It was fabulously easy to make these big hexies (1 1/2 inches) as I've been making half inch hexies lately and so these seem enormous..  Also, for the first time, I glued the fabric down - so fast, so easy.
Most of the fabric is from my stash but I also put in some squares from a charm pack I bought at Sewn and Quilted.  It is Botanique by Joel Dewberry - just love it.

Have you any little boys in your life?  If you do, I feel very confident you will enjoy visiting Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy Crafts.  HERE Stacey shares a 


Thanks for sharing this with us Stacey.
Here's a great school holiday project, very kindly shared by Allison at Dream A Little Bigger.
Please take a look, the technique is so very clever.  Many thanks to Allison.
Hope you are having a wonderful day,

Spotty Heaven

I didn't really have much to write about today and then this morning there was a knock on the door and there was the postie with a bundle of spotty happiness just for me. It came from my dear friend and fellow Mill Rosie girl, Cheryl from Cheryl's Stitchings.  We share a love of many things and she knows my taste so well.
This is the most adorable stitchery and gardening, sewing, chocolate and a cup of tea are some of my favourite things.
and I love, love, love my new bag.  I packed it full of my dilly bag project straight away and off it went to Sewn and Quilted with me for an afternoon of stitching.
Added to the parcel, delicious raspberry M & M's - oh yum, and equally delicious spotty linen. 

Thank you so much dear Cheryl, I adore my gifts and thank you too to Shez and Peg for organising this fun swap for us.

Here's a great project today.
It is shared HERE on fabulous Lula Louise and I love it.  Hope you like it enough to want to make it too.  Many many thanks to super generous Beth.  She has a new blog, Sew DIY which you can check out HERE
Hope your day has been wonderful
