A stocking & a quilt

I mentioned in my last post that I hadn't done a lot of sewing towards the end of last year.  But I was absolutely determined to make a stocking for James' first Christmas.

I used Camille's Merry pattern and finished it the night before we left to go to Ireland for Christmas.

It seems to have been a success!

I also used the leftover fabric from Ben's Quilt to make a similar pram sized one for James' Christmas present.

Something new


It's been a while!  I haven't sewn and therefore blogged in a long time.  2013 was quite a year for me. But there will be no apologies and no recaps of what was or wasn't done.  It's January - a time for new starts and looking forward.  So with that in mind I've started a new quilt for my best friend in work who just had a little baby boy last week.

Fabric is Safari Soiree by Dan Stiles for Birch Fabrics with some Aqua Sketch and Kona Snow.  I'm using the Little Man pattern from Camille's first book Simplify.

Right now this is what I am working on mostly in nap times and a little in the evenings.  I am trying to just focus on one machine sewing project at a time so for the next few weeks this is it!
