Organised October: Reading Pillows!

Hello Peeps,

For today's Organised October we have some kits for reading pillows.

Miss H went to some friends' birthday party (triplets - 2 girls and a boy - and their sister). The Mother taught them how to quilt last year and they are creative so Miss H and the Mother decided to make up some packs for them to make their own Reading Pillows.

So, the Mother wrote up a pattern for them. Below is some of the progression photos we included with the instructions.

Here is some of the Mother's stitching.

The front. I love that front fabric - though Snowy doesn't! Hee hee hee!

I don't know what this is a picture of... um... a pin in fabric...
 This is what happens when Miss H lets the Mother take the pictures... 

The finished pillow! Complete with Miss H's favourite book, of course! 

The Mother and Miss H made up the kits for the triplets and their sister. 

Each fabric was carefully chosen according to the colours they like.

Organised October: Drumstick Case

Hello Peeps,

Sorry I have been away for sooooooooo long. Miss H and I came home for our study break and wanted to spend as much time with family as possible.

The Mother was asked by Master I-Zee, her favourite nephew (is she allowed to have favourites?), if she would make him a drumstick case. Always up for a challenge - even though she had never even seen a drumstick case before - she said yes.

Here it is all rolled up.

The Mother chose lots of different blue fabrics to make it. The stripey blue and white fabric is actually another pocket.

Unfortunately we didn't have any drumsticks to show you - and I am a little big. Hee hee!

The handle hangs up near his drum set so he can easily reach his drumsticks. Master I-Zee was so proud when he took it to music class - EVERYONE wanted one.
He even took it with him to China on the school music trip!

Scrap and Stash September: Whale Pillow

Hello Peeps,

The Mother kindly gave Miss H some of her scraps from a Snowball Quilt she was making (as usual, she gave the quilt away before she snapped a picture... sigh!).

So Miss H decided to use them to make a set of three pillows with some ocean themed stitcheries in the center and a Scripture verse surrounding it.

Here is the first one that Miss H has completed - just waiting to be sewn together and stuffed with a cushion. 

And this is the cute whale in the center. Miss H got him out of Wild Olive's Stitch Love books - one of her favourites.

Scrap and Stash September: Star Quilts Revealed...

Hello Paw-Pals,

This is quilt 1

The Mother has been doing some work on the Scrap and Stash September quilts.  She decided it would be fun to use her star blocks in a colour star quilt.

Each block is a different colour.  She hardly believed she had scraps in that many colours.  She had great fun!

I like the blue star, the Mother likes the yellow one.

She decided to make 2 quilts - But silly her she sent these photo's to Miss H but took two photo's of the same one!!!!!  Gee, she really needs help!!! 
Though the two pictures at the top are of the other quilt - before it is completed...

Take One - with borders on top and bottom only...

This is quilt 2

Take Two - with borders on all sides.

Scrap and Stash September: Pin Cushions

Hello Peeps,

 The Mother made this coolio pin cushions out of scraps and some of Miss H's orphan stitcheries.

It was a left-over block that made the background of this one. I have to say that that log cabin looks VERY inviting!

We have a hole in the ozone layer above New Zealand so it is very important to wear a sunhat - and this is a very cute one.

"You are my sunshine" springs to mind when I see this pincushion...

I wonder what is inside this picnic basket - hopefully some yummy sandwiches and a whole bar of CHOCOLATE just for me!

I love Scrap and Stash September! There are sooooo many things you can make with scraps.

Er... about this one......something is wrong with this one.....just saying.....

Pop by next Monday to see what became of these scrap-tastic star blocks.

Slobbery Kisses,
From Snowy!
