New Fabrics

Look at the cute fabrics I bought from Corrie's shop. The elephant one is for me, but I dont have a project planned for it as yet. The Hello Kitty fabric, well you would all know by now that Isabelle loves this fabric, and I plan to make a bag for her out of it. Perhaps I can sew one up in the next few days and pop it in with her birthday presents for Monday. I really cannot believe she will be turning 6! It seems as though the time has just flown by.

I also bought some trims. The owl one is my favourite. I just realised that they match Project Spectrum too. I have been very slack in knitting and sewing in the selected colors for the month. This period is orange, brown and purple. I do have knits in all those colors and I really should get my camera out and blog about them, but lately I have been all over the place and not really accomplishing much. Maybe I need to get the camera out and blog about them next week. Yes, I think I shall and maybe get motivated to get a move on too. I am hoping to pull out the Jethro Jacket for Paul and complete the back of it at least. I have not knit on it for quite a while, and it is sitting in that notorious WIP basket. Maybe I need to give it a clean out and decide what to finish. I have finished knitting the baby jacket I started on Saturday, but it needs seaming. I am trying to finish the sleeve on another one too so I can do them both at the same time. Well enough waffling on from me. I have to get myself off the computer and do some present wrapping, and hopefully some crafting too. Happy knitting!

That fabric is just too cute! Love the elephants.

Wow 6 years! Birthdays, as happy as they are, are also a bit sad to see them get older... They grow too fast. But its also fun to see them grow and watch them become the person they are and not just your little baby:o)Happy early Birthday Isabelle!

Looking at your yarns makes me think I'll have to get the sewing machine looked at so I can make some things for Jayda and Kayla. Their mum doesn't knit or sew.

Wow! Happy Birthday to Isabelle.
The fabrics look lovely and your crafting output never ceases to amaze me. I can't believe that you have any WIPs.
Yes my caravan is for holidays. The place closes down over the winter so I can't live in it. That way, you dont have to pay council rates.
Cheers Gillian

Love the fabrics from Corries little shop - I think that I am going to have to get some elephants before they all run off on a stampede somewhere!
