Follow this very talented ladies lead and you won't go wrong. I have to say, thus far I still haven't reached the holy grail of neat and seamless bindings, practice makes perfect as they say?...
I have so many quilts to make that yes I can definitely practice!
speaking of which, Isabella's isn't going to finish itself, and it would be nice if she got it before she grew old and grey herself!
Thanks for reading
I have dribbled into this millennia and have installed mobile Blogger. Until the very early hours I made and mixed, sewed and pieced...
Now we have a little play mat to soften the bump when little bottoms bump down hard. The other project was the school sign, letters cut out, backing is hemmed and ready for the next stage.

Follow this link to see what this talented blogger did.... however, I can't help but think that some of the bracelets look like an attempt of suicide.... sorry just my mixed up head x
Not only am I challenged in creating items for a Crafting circle whose aim is to make money or items for sale or to give to local families in need, My Step Daughter and my Eldest Daughter both are eager to use a sewing machine and learn how to create for themselves...
What to do thats easy enough to pick up in one go, and will be usefull to them both... a doorstop, thankfully the ones you can see in the link are perfect and work brilliantly well as cuddly's too!

The problem is, I now need to create some more, having done MY maths and made all My maths suggested... reality means that I am way out and need another 6 blocks to complete the rectangle and then do the middle blocks for the mummy's life story.
In all honesty, I can't wait to see the end product, however, I am suffering a bad bought of lethargy, and keeping awake seems to be a real bind right now, 20 hours out of the 24 could easily be spent asleep the other 4 upright feeding the baby, (a breast fed 1-2 year old is hard on the bodies resources - especially when that body isn't getting the best food intake either)
anyone for pizza?
