Finally finished DH's quilt

So its not the most perfect or neat quilt in the world but i finally finished Robert's quilt that i started last year.

So he loves it thats the main thing hey LOL

Swap present from KYS

I got these gorgeous pants and reversible cross back top from KYS as part of the kids clothing swap.

Rona put them on straight away and loved them she didnt see the denim ones till later and got cranky as i wanted her to take "pretty flower ones off" hence the sulky face in the first pic LOL

Thank you Kys they are great

Kids clothing swap

The very talented SUZ made these for Zeke and i love them they are so cute and very boyish after having 3 girls in a row its great to have something other then pink or purple around again.

They dont fit him just yet but they will soon they came wrapped in the same material the hoodie is made out of and i LOVE the dinosaurs

Thank you they are great

Duffel bags and hat

The kids are going to a siblings camp tomorrow so they needed bags to carry their towels and things in when they go to the beach.

So i made the boys a duffel bag each This is Logans he is older now so not so much into the theme material LOL

This is Kye's he loves the spiderman material so he got it . They are fully lined inside and have a pocket for keeping their wallets and sunscreen in.

And finally my very first attemp at making a hat with no pattern :0. The brim is a bit big and floppy as i didnt have anything apart from pelon (i think that's what its called) so i think i need something stiffer but again he loves it so im rather proud of my first ever hat

Engagement present

Well here is the engagement present i made for Paige's friend on the weekend.

Im not sure on the colour of the edging but apparently it was very much liked the edging is also the material that is on the back of the placemats and the centre mat.

But they are done and liked so thats the main thing i guess LOL

Secret Santa

Finally i have gotten around to posting my pics of my swap i got from the lovely LISA.

Its not all in the pic as DD2 decided the little christmas deco's had to go on the tree as soon as it was opened and mummy didnt get a say.

But here is the bag i love it i just have to tell DD15 to keep her hands off and the material was made into a dress for DD2 as the one i made wasnt good enough once she saw this one so thank you Lisa it was great

Well been ages since he has been on here if at all i cant remember now .

But i finished his dungaree's today they are made out of material i think i got in a swap with Tigerfilly. I love it its so cute and they turned out great i think.

They are a bit big but oh well he will get more wear out of them this way

More sewing

This wrap skirt i made for myself for the kids dance concert on Sunday not sure if im going to make a top tomorrow or wear a black one i have . Its not the best picture but the material is an off white with small black paisley print and little eyelet holes through it all .

Here is a little skirt i ran up for Rona as usual the minute i start to sew she is at me demanding a dress or skirt and gets the poops when i dont use the colour she wants LOL.
