Smalls SAL check-in September

Hi everyone, sorry about the delay in updating, I´ve sprained a wrist which has made typing, blogging and nearly everything else a bit difficult..  It is check-in day for the Smalls SAL hosted by Heather at the Stitching Lotus and I can show this little pattern finished recently but not yet made into a biscornu.

While DH was away for a week, I was going to sew up a storm, completing UFOs, catching up on taking photos and blogging in general but on the first morning of my -do-as-you-please- days, I sprained my wrist making the bed of all things and so my sewing plans went out of the window.

This biscornu pattern is a free one by Erba at CasaERBA

Before down to the use of just one hand, I had been making very good progress with my granddaughter´s crochet blanket squares.

I started making blue knitted squares months ago but we then decided on purple and pink crochet cotton ones and I needed to make about one hundred.  They are nearly finished now and I am doing the blocking.


I have been trying to organize my fabric stash and have these horrible scraps which I am going to put  together in a big envelope and send to anyone who might be in the need of horrible scraps, just let me know if you would like them..,,. they are mainly 90cm x 15cm.

This is all for the moment, see you next week.

Just Red

Hi everyone,
  August was a busy month with journeys and family visits, so I´m a bit behind with my blogging and blog visits.  However I´m really pleased to take part once again in The Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade hosted by Ida at My Sister Made Me do it.

I don´t have many pincushions but I made this one last week with Ida´s parade in mind.

It is a free design called May Flowers Pin Cushion and can be found here.  I made the pattern a bit larger because I didn´t have the 18ct fabric called for and used a piece of 28ct from my stash.

My Mr Hexie Hedgehog is used more as a paperweight than a pincushion as he is quite heavy but I like his bright colours.

Next is this little cushion which started out as a crazy patchwork `work of art´ but it fell by the wayside and ended up in the UFO drawer only now to see the light of day.

and my favourite at the moment is my strawberry pincushion.

I´ve seen loads of these on the Internet and had to make one, They are quick and easy and  make   useful gifts

If you would like to see some really lovely work or show your own pincushions, do visit Ida for the details and link up before the 15th September. 
 Until next week.
