Octobers Fresh Sewing Day

Hey im linking up with Lily's Quilts today to show you what I have been up to for the last month, also because im a small blog (less than 50 followers :-( ) im linking up to this also

Small Blog Meet

So this month I have made the following:
Ballerina girl for Peace Bee With You

2x Pretty little pouches, 1 for this swap, 1 for a friends birthday


I used a linen for this pouch, and based the design on a lovely charm square I received in the UK Japanese Charm Swap that was hosted by Cindy. I did a little bunny embroidery with a fluffy tale as my partner likes embroidery.
This pouch also uses the Japanese bunny fabric as well as some that have been in my stash for years! I'm glad I chose a contrast zip for this one, I think it helps to lift it.

Pincushion for this swap



My improv quilt for me

It just needs me to finish hand sewing the binding and me and hubby will be snuggling under it on the sofa for the winter.
So head over to Lily's Quilts for some other lovely makes and help support the small blogs like mine that would love to grow a little!

I am in love with your ballerina! When I was a child that was what I wanted to be when I grew up. It didn't happen but I still have a fondness for ballet.

Your rabbit pouch is so clever! I can't wait to see what else you create.

OOOH! First off, I really like the background of your blog with all that yummy folded fabric! Your ballerina is wonderful!! So many little pieces! I too like making little stuff - it's great to get instant gratification. And your improv quilt looks perfect for snuggling. It made me smile that you were so happy about your hubby. I am a small blog too and look forward to checking back to your blog!
