Good evening folks,
First of all a Happy Mother’s Day to all you lovely ladies out there. Mine was very eventful. I spent most of the day in A & E as my little fella had fallen out of bed at his Nanny’s house and landed on his shoulder.
Anyway on our return home we sat down to watch Terra Nova whilst he proceeded to eat the Mother’s Day chocolates he had bought me and then had an allergic reaction to one with a nut in. Another trip to the doctors tomorrow to test for allergies.
Anyway, I decided to make my Mum a mini quilt (inspired by Syko’s designs my favourite designer), a little box to put her jewellery or chocolate in and a matching coaster.
These are the finished results. Instead of a teacup I decided to put a bottle of wine more up Mum’s street. D kindly pointed out that the cake was levitating grrrrrrr. More like it just can’t wait to be eating.
The fabric box. These are so cool I have one on my sewing table to keep my machine bits and bobs in.
And the coaster. I’m SLOWLY getting the hang of the old free motion machining. The little doll tag was from this month’s Craftseller Magazine which is awesome. Offers free craft patterns to sell highly recommend.
All wrapped up (but not for long) and thankfully Mum loved them.
I also got D’s kids and D to help me make muffins for her. Yeah, well I might just stick to the sewing as mine were the pink topped ones and D’s were the chocolate. Hmmmm enough said.
I also decided to make this little set too but still deciding what to do with it. Another Syko design and Dylan still keeps giggling at the bra, as 7 year old’s do! I feel it may be a belated birthday present for someone.
And to finish my makes for this week I made this sneaky little bunny from Tilda’s Springtime Gifts book for David’s little brother who is 4 (it has been in progress for the last 2 years). Finally finished.
I couldn’t resist sending him some mini eggs too.
Well that’s it for now. Going to sulk as my sewing machine has broken again.
Hope you all had a lovely Mother’s Day.
