Quick Ironing Board Recovery!

Quilts and other projects are still ongoing but in the meantime I saved a rather sad ironing board with a new cover - a big improvement!

Tough Love!

I thought I'd share my romantic side! Today I gave my lovely man a hand embroidered card using a wonderful design from Mollie Makes. As we all know nothing says 'I Love You' as much as a tattoo - luckily mine is less painful than the real thing!

I also gave him a photograph of Manhattan taken from Brooklyn Heights - the spot he proposed - all together now ahhhhhh!

Keeping Warm

I'd forgotten I'd made this! I was looking through my hats and scarfs and found this - my first attempt in years at knitting! Not bad and it does keep me warm!

Flea Market Fancy PJs

To celebrate Al's safe return to the UK after such a long trip and her bravely transporting some serious fabric we spent a day sewing. Her new overlocker made the journey with her and after a couple of moments deciphering the threading instructions, it was up and running! To try it out I made some PJs out of this wonderful Flea Market Fancy fabric. The super-size allows for space for my rapidly growing baby tummy and much lounging!
