Noahs quilt

After making the girls a doll quilt Noah requested a quilt for his bears, early on i realised he would probably use it more for himself so i made it a little bigger and backed it with polar fleece. He loves it. I used a tutorial from . Super easy and quick.

Vege Garden

This year we decided to move our vege garden because it was getting way too much sun where it was . So J got more dirt on Friday and yesterday we planted some Tomatoes, Cucumber, Lettuce, Squash, Pumpkin seeds and capsicum seeds that i had saved. Also want to get some corn and maybe onions. (oops pictures in wrong order)

Doll quilt

Here is Sienna with her new dolls quilt that i whipped up today. I still need to quilt around each square but have run out of white cotton. I saw the pattern in the new "Patchwork and Stitching" magazine using charm squares. I already had some charm squares that i had brought from Runaway quiltbook and they were perfect for a dolly quilt

WIP- Shaggy edged Quilt

So here it is... finally all cut out and ready to sew. It took a little while to work out which colours looked best together and i decided to keep it all in order not crazy colours everywhere as the pattern suggested
