So all of a sudden the other day I decided to pull my finger out and get my Madeit store up and happening. I have had it semi set up for a while with a couple of tshirts on but i still need to get a logo happening.
Anyway, I've been madly sewing these last couple of days and so far have added 5 new items. Here are a few pics of my handy work! I have already shown the black and white baby bug quilt.

This baby wrap feels so soft to hold. I haven't used any batting, just backed it with the Urban flannel and quilted it with the double edged squares.

I am definately making more of these. I just love holding it. It feels so comforting.

Yay! Crazy Croc Tees! I made one of these for William months ago and have had so many people ask where I got it that I thought these should most certainly go in my Madeit store!

Blue and grey spotted crazy croc!

Green crazy croc!

More designs to come!

busy busy busy

I've always been hopeless at keeping diaries and seems I'm just as bad with blogging!

We have been pretty busy here. I'm trying to put some work into the things around the house that I let go coz I was spending sooo much time infront of my sewing machine! The gardens are being attacked, weeds pulled, cow poo on then a thick layer of mulch. The vegie garden is starting to look loved again. That was really suffereing. The fruit trees I planted when we moved here have all been given either chook poo or cow poo!
We went to Manjimup yesterday and picked up some (3) pigglets. Ben has wanted Wessex Saddlebacks for ages and we found some little ones really cheap in the Quokka so we went and got them. They are in the calf shed at the moment and need a new bigger home that hopefully we can start this week. They are pretty cute. We are trying to make them abit friendlier so we can choose a boer to start breeding when we get a sow.

I have done very little sewing or quilting really. I have made these napkins for Bens mum for her birthday.

I also made this cute little baby quilt come tummy time play mat. I had the red and black ladybird blocks left over from another quilt I made last year and thought I had better start using some scraps that are starting to make their way out of my sewing room! I listed it in my Madeit store

Oh! I almost forgot. My fantastic fabric from Scarlett Fig arrived. Donkeys in Wellies and the giraffes and rhinos. I will take a pick I promise. I'm trying to work out what I'm going to do with it. I have about 20 things in my mind at the moment and am finding it difficult to know where to start!

I have a 'Follower'!

Yippee!! I officially have a follower listed on the side! I checked this morning and there it was! Well of course I had to check and see who. Funky Fabrix! Yay! My favourite online store. I think I have maxed out my credit card to them! Don't tell hubby, he wouldn't be impressed! I buy a fair bit of my fabric from them and love the funky stuff the carry.

Harry's plane quilt

My friend Kel from my mums group asked me to make her a new quilt for her little boy Harry. She didnt care how I did it. She has two already that Ive made for her and loves them so much she just had to have another... so.... HERE IT IS!

What do you think? ! just used various blues and greens and raw edge appliqued the planes on. I think she'll like it. William certainly did, he kept pointing to himself everytime I showed him!
OH yeah, and I's so proud, I actually quilted it with my free motion foot. Finally had the guts to use it! I quilted clouds all over it. I think it looks good
