Rafe's Flag

The prairie points were meant to go on the bottom but I think I like it more this way.

Getting ready for Christmas ...

Fidgy Pudding pressie towels

Originally, these towels were meant to go into a Christmas charity raffle but there are so many items already that I am just giving them away as gifts. Because I was having fun with them and a lot of cat-themed Christmas fabric, I made some kitty Christmas towels for my friend Caroline:
Catty Christmas towels - almost finished!

And now, finally, for me, me, me:
Cowl for me, me, me!

I found the pattern on Ravelry and I can tell you that Rowan Lima is delicious, soft and wonderful to work with!

Brilliant idea!

This was originally uploaded by imagingermonkey. And I think I will have to make something like this too!

Mug Rugs ...

As you may be able to tell ... I am bored at work, not because I don't have a lot on ... but because it leaves me a bit uninspired at the moment ... I'd rather be making mug rugs ...

Guess what I will do tonight!

There are Christmas stocking and tea towel fabrics that I crave!

Can you say "sidetracked" ...

During my first visit to Melody's Fiber Mania blog, I stumbled across one of her projects, the eternity scarf .... I loved it so much - me, the person who doesn't like wearing self-knit things - that I had to hop over to CS Quilt Design for Rowan Lima yarn and downloaded the pattern.

I have no idea when I will manage to actually knit this ... but one can still dream, right?

As an aside ...

I so want to go to the Festival of Quilts in Brum in August 2011.

Christmas Countdown

Candle Mat

I actually made two of these after stumbling across the Candle Mat swap. One will go to my mum, the other will go to the raffle at the International Brunch the International Women's Club Stuttgart is hosting in aid of the Kinderschutzbund Stuttgart and their amazing efforts in supporting children in need.

Such a simple, yet cool way to use HST

As some already know, I hate corners, I hate triangles even more. But I love HSTs ... they are so easy to make. But they can be a bit repetitive, so this is a great way to use them.

Thank you, Red Pepper Quilts, for sharing!

Cuddly Lovey surgery

Paula has had Yayo since birth and loves that little lion with all her heart ... and teeth and arms ... There came the day when Yayo was so threadbare that he was more bare than he had threads left:

The Lion Patient

Because she wasn't my first baby, I had the good sense to buy two of the same animal and in the beginning I managed to somewhat rotate them.

Bought on the same day ...

Which now left me with a bit of an imposter who needed to be "adapted" to his identical twin ... and at the end of it, I had a very happy little girl ...

All in a weekend's work!
