This is my "design wall" (tongue very firmly in cheek here!) complete with my very neatly categorised crafting commitments. The baby clothes pinned up are for a "Betty Bunny" that needs to be done by the weekend and in the fireplace you can see some of my very neatly folded and colour coded fabric!!!
My job list includes
- 11 Pay It Forward gifts
- 1 Russian Doll Swap gift for Emma
- 1 reversible messenger bag
- 1 appliqued patchwork fleece blanket like this
- 1 Janet Bolton style picture for my friend's birthday - it was in April!
- 2 Dilbert dinosaurs
- 4 Betty Bunnies
- 2 Pocket & Floss Bunnies
- 1 Magoo
- 2 large owls
- 2 small dolls like these
- and 14 mini quilts
and a finished Magoo called Magnus
only this one is a midi-Magoo, reduced to 75% on my scanner because he needs to be posted to Canada.
To give you an idea of size here he is with his very much bigger sister Maggie
I'm really pleased with how he has turned out - he is such a cheeky monkey! And isn't it funny how much more "boy-like" he looks than Maggie - and I don't think it is just because of the colours.
On the quilt front, I am at the point of binding on Leanne's, Trashy's and Kate's, three-quarters of the way through finishing the top of Rachel's and I've just made the top of Anne's - and I'm really pleased with how it is going so here is a sneak peek for you........
I know it looks very plain but Anne kindly took me up on the offer of a cream and white quilt built around the lovely embroidered fabric that Lina sent me with my mini quilt - it actually looks really effective in a very simple way!!!
