When I was on my weekend road trip I took along some yarn to knit.
I recently read on Karen's blog... HeRe... about some little Lamb Jumpers she knitted & I wanted to do the same. I finished one little jumper using up some scraps I had & will knit more over the coming months.
The project doesn't need any more jumpers ATM but probably will next winter.
It certainly is a FuN way to spend some time.
You can read about this project HeRe... & get the instructions on their facebook page "Helping our Farmers" but I will put the pattern on my side bar too for easy access... under CHARITY Projects... or click HeRe.
This is a borrowed photo...showing samples of "LAMB JUMPERS" ...
A new month has begun & so this week we will have our monthly ...

Simply add your blog address to the link below... then EnJoY some ME time on Friday night.
I'll have a NiCe slice to share & the kettle on ... OR the bottle chilling...
Remember to write a post about what you got up to at FNwF... & we'll all come by to see you.
We only ever encourage so even if you only add one stitch...we want to see it.

that I've been wanting to make for ages & ages.
A sewing machine MaT... specially for taking to retreats.
I have a sew together bag... a pin cushion... & now a MaT... all in the same colourways & some same fabrics.
If I keep them all together with the tools inside then I wont forget anything while packing to go on retreat. Well ... that's the plan anyways...
Lots of pockets in the apron... small and double size... and a measure tape.
And just lOOk at the gorgeous backing fabric I had in my stash... PeRFecT...
The MaT is my own design and measures 24in wide and 18in deep... including the 5in apron.
I've added this make to my BMP challenge list for September.
I designed & completed this QUILT wall hanger just before I went on holidays.
It was for a member of the Fat 1/4 Birthday Club... whose fav colour is ReD... & as Illene has now received it... I can show a pic here on my blog.
It's a simply hanger measuring 10in x 20in... with the letters Q U I L T appliqued onto the background fabric.
Then I added some cute buttons that I purchased from the Sydney Craft Show around the frame.
These buttons included a tape measure, sissors, sewing machine, needle, threads & a thimble.
I thought Illene might like to display it in her sewing room.
I'm extremely HaPPy this month as I completed 10 items.
Even though I was away in our caravan for most of the month, I managed to find quality ME time. Thanks once again to PeG... & KRiS... for being the accountants.
