First we have Jane. Jane, I think you are capable of anything! She regularly sews, bakes, crochets... but she decided to try embroidery...
This design is from Jenny at Elefantz. You can find this on the right under favourite blogs. She has many free designs to download. This is so lovely!
Jane also finished a baby rug...
A very good start to the year!
I wanted to show a gift from Bridge. She made me a photo album with bluebirds on the front...
I love it!
Mary made her husband a shirt...
Beautiful sewing Mary and it is good to include some mens gifts as I think they are harder!
Also Mary and her husband re covered the headboard on their bed...
Just beautiful Mary!
Phyllis sent me a lot of wonderful photos and some good stories! She can make anything!
She made her Grand daughter doll clothes.
She made a second identical set so her Grand daughters best friends doll could be dressed the same! 😍
These are so cute, the dressing gown linen matches the pyjamas!
A baby quilt...
Phyllis says she goes with the "more is more" way of thinking! This is so cute.
Janine made pillowcases. These are a great gift. Patsy and I have also been making pillowcases and I am building up a supply.
Janine has shown an idea for a boys pillowcase as well which is great. Beautiful work!
Marilyn trimmed towels for gifts...
This is a very versatile idea as you can do any colour scheme, theme, or any size towel, face washer, hand towel etc.
She also made the most adorable doorstops...
This is a great idea for small amounts of material. I love them!
They are like little door guardians and she puts a note with them that they have to be given a name. So she keeps hearing back the names people have given them!
This will do for this week and we will do more show and tell next week! If you would like to share what you have been making just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I love to see what you are making and if we share our ideas it is really helpful.
I always end up with ideas and some inspiration! I think my next direction is making things for Harper's dolls as she is very keen on dolls and has a baby pram... she would love little sheets, pillows and blankets etc. I have small bits of material and odds and ends of pretty trims so I am set!
I hope your week is going well! I have been picking peaches! Last night I got a huge basketful and then could hardly carry it home!
What are you working on just now? During the day I get a little bit of sewing done. In the evening I work on a cotton baby rug. (while watching the Australian Open) It all adds up! xxx
