Another first ...............

Some of the fabric in my op shop buy was not really to my taste. I decided to make a rag quilt for my pooch, Charlie. I used fleece on the back. Its 36 x48inches, or there abouts.

Wow, my hands are still recovering from all the snipping.

It turned out ok but I dont think I'm a fan. So far Charlie has only sniffered it, maybe he doesnt like it either????

Oh, I have to take that back he's now lying half on it, hahaha. Actually, looking at the pics it doesnt look half bad.
Nice drop of rain today. Hopefully it hasnt bypassed our country cousins.

Bits and bobs.................

Only a little sewing has been happening of late. New additions, childminding and work have got in the way. Plus I must admit, I have a slight case of mojoitis. Dont worry, its not contagious. Lots of lovely things being made by others.
Here are a few things I have done including the heart I sent to lovely Liz at Luv2create.

I also recieved some yummy chocolates and sent Liz a Lindt block.

I made this placemat for our 4year old grandie who was always asking me for her 'special' placemat. She was very happy when she found it on the table.

On a recent op shop visit I bought this bundle of patchwork fabrics. Lots of lovely fabric for $10, a bargain!
