This month has been full of lots of handmade goodies. I love handmade!
I think I would give any crafting a go - whatever it is. There is nothing quite like the satisfaction of producing something with your own two hands.
One quick little project this month was this cute little rubbish bag. I got the fabric kit from Bayside Stitching on one of our road trips.
It is supposed to be for in the car but I have been using it next to the sewing machine and it's very, very handy.
I have finished and framed the stitchery we were given from Rosalie Quinlan in Melbourne. Thanks to Sandi who let me know about these square frames at Big W. The frame was exactly what I was looking for.
I have been working on this months Gossip in the Garden block. Lots of little pieced blocks in this one and some appliqué.
Just have to blanket stitch it.
As usual it has been lots of work but lots of fun as well. I am really loving this quilt.
It was my turn to give a birthday present this month in my Friends in Stitching group. My partner was the lovely Sarah from Patcheorks Plus. Our theme this year is a bag and it has to be in black and white. I made Sarah a lantern bag.
Keeping with the black and white theme I also made a little tissue holder and I found a set of nail files in the right colours too. I know Sarah loves scorched almonds!
It has also been the week of handmade slices! A friend tagged me with this Nutella cheesecake slice and Miche'le in NZ challenged me to make it. So of course I had to make it! The slice is absolutely delicious and one I will definitely be making again. I took the whole 16 slices to work as it was still in the process of setting. I came home with 3 slices so I think they liked it.
Hope you are having a great week!
