My LiTtLe SeW-A-ThoN !

While hubby's away, this sewer can play.....
slightly modified to suit the occasion... grin.
My other half took off at 7.oo am this morning for his annual 4 day golf trip with some old mates. Of course I had to fill my time in somehow... no housework to do except to make the bed... so I headed up to my cubbyhole.
First things first... take a good cup of tea with me...!

I wanted to add a little pillow to my niece's gift basket... so I made this "shhh... pillow". It can hang on any door knob to remind visitors that the little man is asleep.



















Then I added the label to the finished "Balloon Baby" floor play rug that I put together. This is such a bright and colourful quilt that I'm sure my niece will LoVe it. It will keep baby "K" on a clean and warm surface... and once he's a little older, a stimulating one too!

This quilt is 35in x 44in.
I also made a mini pudding... just to add to a gift pack for Christmas... and I liked it so much, I made two!  I think I'll have to make some more later on as well.
The pattern is in the book "Get red, red, ready for Christmas " by Natalie Ross.
Isn't it a cutie pie pudding!

Then it was time to stop my little "sew-a-thon" and drive to my hairdressing appointment... darn it!

Back home AGAIN.... all beautiful once again... hahahaaaa !
The rest of the afternoon was taken up by another project. A knee rug. I planned and roughly sketched out my layout... located a pattern... found some fabrics... cut out some shapes... and put this block together.
Design by "Simply Homespun"- Farmyard Express by Janelle Wind 2002
Perhaps later on tonight I'll have something else ready for the rug... but I'll see how tired I get.
Thanks for visiting my "sew-a-thon".  Please come back again...

Hi Cheryll, Yes, Furio is great company and a great source of entertainment, too. Love all the projects from your 'Sew-a-thon' - I made a ballooning quilt for a girlfriend's baby a few years back - very similar design. It is so cute, isn;t it?

Hugs, kaye xoxox
