Ryan's Quilt

I started this quilt for my Little cousin Ryan in December. Ryan was born on the 7th January. I knew he was going to be a boy and what I wanted to do. It is one of those ones that annoyed me cause I couldn't get the colours right then I had to unpick some then I just ran out of drive to get it done and I started to hate it. The time came where I just bit the bullet and since Thursday last week I have worked hard and it is now done. Rhiannon has a little cuddle with all the quilts I make before thay go off to their new homes. She is pretending to be asleep in this one. How cute is her sleeping face?

I will take some more pics in the daylight so you can see the middle (which is the southern cross) I just wanted to post about it today so I can oput it in my March finished projects!!!!

I have also done two of the blocks for Rhiannon's fairy land quilt but have to iorn them before I can take pics. Will do that tomorrow. They can go in April so it looks like I've done something!!!!

Till next time

Isabel's Bag

This is a bag that I made for my friend Isabel for her birthday. I promised I would make her one last year and never got around to it. Si this year I made this bag and also made her a red and black butterfly pot holder. She loved it. I had a minor problem wher I accidently cut one of the squares so thats why the love heart is there. It turned out to be a nice little added touch.

Till next time xx Geniene xx

Clare Craftroom

Clare over at Clare's Craftroom has come up with a new pattern and is giving away a copy on her blog. I think this would be wonderful in Rhiannon's all things flutterby room and i want to win. So pop over and have a look but don't enter cause I want to win and too many people have already entered (just joking leave a comment and blog about it and you get two entries)
I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee this it is so cute...
Till next post (which may be soon) I have to post my finished projects. Going to take some pics on the broken down camera. Can't wait to get my new one only couple more payments!!!!

Stitched-up's Pin Cushion

Well Amanda recieved her pincushion and she said she loves it. I used the same fabric to wrap it up with. I "borrowed" Amanda's photo because I still don't have a camera although it is on layby!!!!

I am currently working on more of the Natalie Bird Stitcheries for Rhiannon. I have done the stitcheries for the pillowsham, the bolster cushion and i am doing the wall hanging atm. Hopefully won't be long until I start the Applique blocks for the quilt. It is made up of heaps of little squares so I want to do them all together so all the fabrics are matching.

My little chicken is sick with this terrible cold and the only good thing about it is that she wants to sleep!!! I have done the iorning, cleaned up the kitchen, am about to do the bathroom and you know my luck will be that as soon as I sit down to stitch she will be up. So I better get back to it so I can havae a little me time before work.

Till next time

Pin cushion Swap

I 'm done with my pin cushion. I wrapped up today and it's ready to go in the post. I can't show you a pic yet as Amanda (Stitched-up) may just happen along but I will post a pic as soon as she opens it.

My swap partner is Liz (Mum of 6) who lives just around the corner so I think we are either going to catch up for coffee or she is going to pop it in the letter box.

Can't wait to be able to post some pics.

I just signed up for the Peg Bag swap!!!!

Till later

Feb FQ and Seeds Swap

Our February FQ swap was for a fq of something that grows in your garden and some seeds.

This is what Sandy sent me.
I sent to Judy (Judestuff) I sent her a hot pepper fq and a packet of Beans and Peas
This is a great swap to build up your stash and you get fabrics that you might not think of buying yourself.
Till next time
(It's really late and I am taking Rhiannon to the show tomorrow. I don't think we will be going as early as I planned)
