I have joined blocks 1 through to 8 together and it seems to be coming along quite well. The piccie isn't very good but I was in a hurry and couldn't be bothered hanging it up so this will have to do for the moment.
June and I had a busy long weekend together, on Saturday morning we went to our local craft shop to buy fabric for a project we were going to make, then we baked a chocolate cake for my friend .... Jenny .... who was visiting on Sunday. Monday we visited Liz and her boys... Jake, Clayton ( my daughter, Junes Aunt) we had a lovely day.
Cleaning up after cooking.
Busy tracing and cutting out the doll.
Having a break......watching "Happy Feet"
This is a pattern from " Patchwork and Stitching" magazine ..."Rosemarie Jane" by Maria Lewty.
Here she is finished.
We made this doll together, June embroidered the cushion and pants, also machine sewing of the pants , stuffing the body and traced all pattern pieces with templates onto fabric ...... all for the very first time and she is only 9 years old. I'm very proud of her and I know " Rosie " will be happy living in June's bedroom.
I'm a Mum to 1 fantastic son and 2 beautiful daughters I'm also Nan to 5 super grandchildren and not forgetting my Hubby...Gavan of 52 years. We have a cute Jack Russell dog "Pippa" who is the boss in our home.
I enjoy lots of crafts but embroidery would be my first love followed closely by quilting, patchwork and the list goes on. I like to have a go at new crafts when I can. We have lived in Jimboomba QLD for 27 years. I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog.
