Always worth having a look at the craft section in Savers. Found these new ( uncut!) sewing patterns today for $1.99 each, always looking for new tshirt/ top patterns! Mind you it will be January before I have time to try any of them!

Not much sewing/ crafting going on here lately, so here is a bit of a catch up of photos from recent weeks.
Lovely yellow roses from my Dad's backyard - even the fallen petals are pretty, they look like a potpurri mix!

It has been a week or two of rainbows lately! After making and wearing my first rainbow heart brooch, and making more for the market last week, I have had lots of comments & requests for more!
They are time consuming enough to make - picking up each bead with tweezers- let alone having to pick the yellow and orange beads out from the big multi mix jar of ikea beads! So I ended up ordering some more colours ( since Spotlight seem to sell only a handful of colours- they have had them on special twice now with virtually no stock on the shelves).

I was quite suprised to see these 2 "Marfy" design books- complete with pull out pattern sheets, at Savers last weekend-

I sorted some of my fabrics recently and put a lot of pieces into a box marked " for a quilt"- mainly smallish prints & solid colour pieces. This week I have finally got around to sorting the colours and giving the rotary cutter and cutting mat a thorough work out!
As much as I love knitting blankets and giving them as gifts, they do take several months to knit! Whereas I figure if I already have a heap of strips cut out, I can sew up a simple baby quilt or cushion cover in less than a week. That is the plan anyway!
