Saturday and I have some pictures to post

Well its Saturday evening here now, cleaned up my house this morning and then felt a bit “off” for the rest of the afternoon so just lolled about reading some of the wonderful blogs out there.  Just made myself a lovely pumpkin quiche and had it with scotch fillet steak – so needless to say I am feeling a whole lot better hehe…..

Yum isn't this so yummy….tastes sooo good




I went to the Spotlight sale last week as well and picked up some nice material (must take a piccie of that) and also got some nice upholstery fabric which was reduced from 26.00 a metre to 6.40….. how could I go past it – IT WAS GREEN AND PURPLE……….it called to me and called to me so home it came and I made a couple of couch covers out of it – well just couch throws LOL covers sounds a bit fancy dancy, and also a matching fabric which I made some pillow cases from .


I have been following a blog recently called Attic24 it is the most colourful and cheerful blog and I try and visit it every day, I fell in love with her gorgeous crocheted blankets and bags so decided to give it a whirl and teach myself to crochet.

Here is the first effort, pretty sad as I couldn't get my tension correct, but now I have taken my hook (whoops nearly said needle) size down a tad or two and things are shaping up much better.  The wee round one is my better effort and is the one I will be continuing with, sorry the pic is a bit blurry but will take a better one tomorrow to show progress on it, I love the colours so bright and cheerful……The middle of that wee circle is lime green and its awesome then bright pink then purple and then orange hehe doesn't show up so good in this pic but I promise its bright.

Things I've made this weekend

I've had a couple of days off this week so did a massive tidy up of the bedrooms and moved a bit of furniture about, which of course showed all the nasty bits in behind which was unfortunate cause then I had to clean the mess. This also created a bit of washing as I removed covers etc from couches due to a doggie using them for a sleeping arrangement, (washed doggie as well LOL) While I was in this house cleaning mode I decided to make some new covers for the pillows and do a spot of painting. So below are some pictures of two wee side tables I painted up to spruce em up a wee bit, and then made a couple of wee coaster type things for putting drinks on so as not to muck up my nice painting and some cushion covers….
ALSO…… a picture of my new toy (on lend to me from a friend down the road who had brought it but never taken it out of its box) Its a Pfaff Grandquilter with a 9 inch throat on it, so am having fun using it to stipple the quilt with. This beastie is heavy and doesn't move at all when stippling.
She's a big beastie but works a treatSANY0433
SANY0435 Cushions for the two seater in the dining room SANY0450
Wee table and cover for the dining room (we don't have a table LOL)

Another wee table painted for the lounge
Wee coaster to stop it getting marked
Pillow case for lounge pillows (two of them done)
And this got a coat of paint as I had some left so decided to use it LOL…

Hi Hello I am back

Hello here I am again, sorry have had so much going on in the “real” world that my poor crafting has taken a back seat a wee bit. BUT had doll club yesterday so managed to take the quilt with me and did some stitching. I stitched in the ditch all around and then had a go at stippling it……….EEEKKK. I sat there with it all ready to go for quite a while as the fear of mucking it up was very real LOL….then I just thought what the heck lets just go for it…….
Well it was fun and although I am not finished I am reasonably happy with my effort so far for a first go so below are some pictures from doll club and of the quilt.
My lovely friend from down the road having her picture taken LOL
