What I have been busy with...

As the title suggests this is a quick post of what I (sharelle) have been busy with in the last month or so...inbetween the madness that is Christmas & the New year and Holidays ect!

A pair of Denim Pants for my Little Miss

Close up - dont you just love the owl hem, i do!

Patchwork Diary Cover, this was a christmas gift for my BIL girlfriend...

Another Christmas gift for my SIL
So there you have it, you can also add another Diary Cover and another bag  to the list but i forgot to take photos of them before gifting them oh and also another pair of baby pants! The Christmas gifts were last minute rushed sewing (and by rushed i mean finishing the bag at 9:30pm on Christmas Eve!), we dont generally do christmas presents in our family (and extended family) but decided at the last minute to organise a Secret Santa with Hubbys Family to kill some time Christmas evening :)

At the moment I am madly scambling to finish Miss W's quilt that I have shown a sneak preview of in a previous post. It was meant to be finshed for her first birthday but that was on Saturday just gone so I've decided that now the sooner I do manage to finish it the better! I am resisting the urge to start anything else new until this is done!

Till next time,

Babette Blanket

Hello, a whole month between posts! Thats pretty bad, blame it on the time of year though, were all busy Mums and time is just flying by.
But Im still hooking whenever and wherever I can. My latest project is finally getting to a size that Im happy to share what Im doing. I started this in early December, and am currently about 1/2 way through. It will end up being a fairly small blanket (to what I was expecting) but its turing out to be a lot of fun. Simple square, lots of bright colours and lots and lots of weaving in ends! This is where I originally discovered the pattern (isnt it beautiful!!!) and here is more detail on my 'Babette Journey'.
So hopefully I will finish it within the next month or so and post a picture of the finished product for you to see. BUT we should be moving house within that time too, so I wont promise too much!

So thats all from me for now!!
