With the leftover material I have been making a couple of things, a pot holder/oven thingy for the kitchen and a tiny cosy for our tiny camper tea pot. The cosy was quite difficult which surprised me.......hey ho, they say you learn something new every day.

Piped cushions anyone?

Anyone that knows me well knows I have a real love for lighthouses. I just fell in love with this fabric from ebay and had the perfect project in mind, replacement cushion covers for the cushions in our camper van.  

You can't see that well from the photo but I made my own piping for the edge. Can't wait to put them in the camper.

Luna gets her polka dot dress

The Cool Crafting kit came with everything you need for a wool felt raglan coat which I made a little while ago and this gorgeous polka dot dress. The only thing I have changed is that I put the two tiny buttons on the front and not the back on top of the press studs and I just hemmed the bottom as I didn't have enough bias binding to put around the bottom - my mistake not the kits.
The pockets were super cute to make and I love the Ricrac edges on the sleeves and pockets.
I have one more kit to do the jeans, shirt and waist coat kit, but I have other things to do first......

Bought some gorgeous fabric from ebay this week to make new cushions for the camper van, it's so cute.......

Have a great week everyone

My Mum made me a new coat

If you are a regular reader you will know that I made Barney a new bed recently, with the leftovers I quilted up a new dog coat for him. The inside has a fleece lining in dark red, sandwiched in between is some wadding. I bias binded the edge having cut out the shape after quilting. 
Super cosy and super cute

Isn't it just great when..... plant bulbs in your garden troughs in September, forget all about them until they start to poke little green shoots out of the soil at the end of January - giving a little indication that Spring might be around the corner.

You spend a couple or three weeks wondering what you put in there and what colours they will turn out to be.....

AND then you are totally blown away by the beautiful, delicate little flowers that open up despite hideously weather - ice, snow, wind, rain.....

Then you realise the cycle of life has begun all over again, winter is receding, new life is being created and Spring is nearly here.

Enjoy your weekend everyone.
