Birdies, party frocks and flowers made this a very fun quilt to applique and quilt. Have a bit of a thing about bunting to match at the moment too!

Yippee, there’s a seasonal change happening so the needles are out again. The first photo is a hoodie in DK for a nephew, I used a free online pattern from Rowan Studios called “Hazel”, the navy cardigan is a ‘Moss Trim Jacket’ by Moda. The vest and turquoise jersey are from King Cole’s 2964 pattern and the final red hoodie is a freebie on line from Shepherd called, ‘jacket with hood’.

The Chapel has a couple of charity drives on at the moment. The 12 metres of bunting is for an outdoor themed auction to raise funds to build a small house to be gifted in Mexico (every little bit helps :), and the jersey is to be sent to little babies in Africa, see www.thebrunswickcentre.org.uk/uploads/Fish_and_Chip_Baby_pattern.pdf

Toddler Dress

There are some very cute dress patterns available this season. I’m happy with how New Look’s 6793 turned out, with it’s shoulder ties and appliqued flower . The bib pattern is a free one that showed up when I searched for a ‘girl’s bib pattern.’

Circle Table Runner

Thought the lounge could do with a bit more colour so here’s the resulting circle table runner for the coffee table.

Growing Potatoes on Carpet

Back in a September issue of Weekend Gardener, Diana Noonam wrote an article on growing spuds the easy way. It involved laying down old carpet, spreading out a growing medium, (Stan brought me a few loads of old, rotting silage), then planting the seed potatoes out and topping up around the potato plants as you needed to. Today I explored to see if anything had grown… Yay, no weeds and easy to dig potatoes! Maybe not so successful was mulching the tomatoes with musty hay, there’s a fine crop of grass sprouting in between the plants.

Doll’s bed and quilt

Granny & Grandpa have just finished making this doll’s bed and quilt in time for Christmas. Stan made the bed out of wood from an old piano, nice and thin and strong.
