At long last the promised pictures of what we've been up to.
At Spinners and Weavers this month Kathy showed us rainbow dyeing. This was my first attempt (modelled by Hannah).
Hannah was quite taken with the idea and so I let her choose the colours and dye her own wool for a hat and scarf set. Bright and colourful like my little girl LOL
These are projects finished for Asha over the weekend.
The giraffe is a Melly and Me pattern - Mrs Perkins.
Last night at Christmas Club Jane showed us another Melly and Me pattern called Pippi (think I might have to put it on my to do list!)
These little squares are part of a long term project. I fell in love with Melly and Me's scrap log cabin and even entered their scrap swap 12 months ago (how I met delightful Catherine from Made By Maisie) but when I found that it was all foundation pieced I lost enthusiasm. Then I borrowed this from the library and found that Rita and Karen's version is all just 1 inch strips - perfect for using up my scraps. I am having fun with this and my frugal nature likes the fact that even fabric as little as 1inch by 2inches can be used!
Several people have asked me about the Restash a Crafter project. The details can be found at handmadehelpsout.blogspot.com or meetmeatmikes.blogspot.com If you are looking for other ways to help the Vic Bushfire Appeal then why not knit a square, or a whole blanket for Wraps With Love (I think Better Homes and Gardens is running a Wraps With Love promotion this month) If you live local enough I am happy for you to get the squares to me and I will stitch them up like this:
Not the world's prettiest blanket but it will keep someone warm and that is what counts!

We make our life by what we give."
Until next time,
