Having Fun!


Well I have had a really fun week sewing all kinds of different things, I made these little coasters out of Olivia the Pig fabric for my little Etsy shop. I really love this fabric, it was fun cutting out all the different little piggies.Then at long last I finally learned basic crochet and made this little pouch to hold a camera or an ipod..... I told you I had fun. Tomorrow though the fun will end for a while as it's Friday and it's house cleaning day, maybe if I work really fast I can still have a couple of hours of fun though!

Wishing lots of fun to you too!

Kathy - I've been away too long ... and I swear you have a little sweatshop going behind your closed doors ;-)

I LOVE the Easter eggs - maybe the simplest of beading or a little bow would make them extra special. Can I ask where you got the pattern from - they are so dear.

I hope your husband did come home and didn't let Harry take his place too easily!

Hope you are well - have a great weekend xx

I am so glad to see you are crocheting. I wish I had your knitting skills but crocheting is fast and fun. Did you crochet the little "bear in the box" in your etsy shop. He is just darling. Hope you have a great weekend.

Me again - forgot to ask you about the egg pattern - I see Rachael Rabbit also asked. Is it your own pattern? Since it is not done on double point needles, I think it is something I could try.

I love cutting little bits out of fabric too and crocheting fun - very satisfying. Hope your weekend is wonderful!
