Just a quick post to show you some of my very wonky creations.
First up is Tweet from Melly and Me's Hooty and Tweet pattern.
These are bright fabrics I got in a fabric swap in my early days of blogging and they go really well with Melly and Me's style. One of his legs is in totally the wrong place but it makes it a bit shorter than the other which Rosie and Melly suggest in the pattern - I just did it by accident!!!
Next is Gabriella (named after High School Musical!)
She was inspired by Lesley's Rosy doll but is definitely a prototype and not very good at all! She would have gone in the bin at the "turn-through" stage but Daisy spotted her and insisted I finished her off - The dress is definitely a 5 minute job! But Daisy loves her and at least now I know how not to make the next one
These are the books I got for Christmas - I know I said I would show them in the previous post but I just forgot, sorry.
I ordered this new Janet Bolton book from Quiltmania in France and it is actually bi-lingual but I like it because of that - it means I can pretend to still be able to read French (after studying it at A'level)
This book is by Lynette Anderson - Hers were the very first stitcheries I ever tried when I was pregnant with Fred and my first proper quilt was one of her designs too. She has a blog too and I love seeing her new work.
Finally I thought I would show you this badge that Katie gave one of my children back in June (I helped choose it!). It is particularly good for us as the Locket Family are renowned for never wearing matching socks. When we visited a friend yesterday it became apparent that Fred and I were probably wearing two matching pairs between us (despite the considerable age and size difference!). I think that is why I tend to have bare feet and the girls favour tights - so much easier to get right don't you think?
