Jeans Bags!

Hello Peeps,

The Mother and Miss H used an old pair of jeans each to make two denim bags.

Aren't they coolio?

The Mother's is made out of more traditional denim and is extremely comfortable. 

Of course birdies are the prefect choice for everything, including denim!!!

Miss H's was made out of black denim - not as comfy!!!

It is Alice in Wonderland themed, complete with a red rose (which is not at all covering up a hole...). 

The Mother had some of the coolio-est multi-coloured thread. Perfect for the straps of Miss H's bag. 

Here are the backs of the bags - sparkles and classic denim.

P.S. From Snowy:

I went to the groomers. Don't I look handsome?

September Soft Storytime: In the Backyard

Hello Peeps,

Miss H has been working on several soft books for a while and she thought September was the perfect time to share them - mainly because Miss H and I lurve lots of amazing alliteration! Hee...hee...hee...

The idea is from her Stitch Love book by Wild Olive (in fact, all the stitcheries were designed by Wild Olive). 

Miss H made them as a great resource to use with infants and toddlers. The first book I'm going to show is called "In the Backyard". 

Isn't the background fabric so coolio? 

A big thank you to the Boss for punching through all the eyelets. 

And here they are...

Lizards and snails are common in the garden. Snails are unfortunately a little too common and very naughty eating Grandma's plants!

Thankfully here in New Zealand we do not have any deadly poisonous spiders. Phew!

Butterflies are Miss H's favourite insect. She always smiles when she sees one. 

We don't have tortoises in our backyards in New Zealand, but when Miss H was younger and lived overseas her family had two. One time the Boss needed to transport them, so he put them in the back of the Isuzu Trooper. The poor tortoises were terrified and peed liters and liters, much to the Boss' horror. Hee...hee..hee...

When Miss H manages to finish the cover page she will tie them all together with this coolio yellow ribbon - if I can get out of it...

Catch Up!

Hello Peeps,

Miss H and I have moved back up to Auckland and in with the Mother and the Boss. We decided to have a break away from the blog for a little while.

But Miss H hasn't stopped doing some projects behind-the-scenes. So I thought I would catch you up on what we have been up to.

Miss H made a couple more cameras for one of university friend's children. The pattern can be found HERE!

This coolio stitchery is going to be turned into a little seed bag to store Miss H and the Mother's new seeds. 
Did you notice that Miss stitched the carrots in orange, purple, yellow, and red? We found some seeds that grow some different coloured carrots and I can't wait to see what they look like. That is if Miss H manages to grow them successfully... she did miss out on the green-fingered gene. 

This patchwork square had a blank space that was begging to be stitched on. 

So, Miss H used this cute little stitchery from Lilipopo to fill in the space. 

This is one of Miss H and I's favourite books. 
Before she tried a whole quilt Miss H decided to practice on something smaller. So she used a few of the patterns to make into a mini. 

Cats and a mouse. What a very brave mouse he is!
Miss H used some scraps that the Motehr had given her a litlle while ago. 

It was a very good idea for Miss H to do a practice as the appplique paper was useless and wouldn't stick on. She also needed to practice even blanket stitches... this one is quite even but the kitten and cat are quite wonky. Oops. 

Miss H is going to do a couple more practice ones - a cow for the Mother, a duck, and a pig (from the same scraps as the cats and mouse) - before she makes this coolio farmyard quilt. 
Though I think she should do a sheep for me first!!!

September and Spring have arrived. Yay! 
I have a theme for this month - Soft Storytime! They are something Miss H and I have been working on for quite a while and I can't wait to show you. They are PERFECT for babies and toddlers.
So pop by next week to see the first set.
