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. 

Love From

  1. Hello Baa .... lovely to see Miss H is still creating & crafting up a storm. Her work is always so beautiful. I love everything she has made here & look forward to seeing the seed bag when it is all done - that is such a wonderful idea & a gorgeous stitchery. Very wet down here so good crafting weather Baa Xxx

  2. Hello Baa - good to have you both around. Lots of lovely work from Miss H - I love the two little stitcheries. Enjoy your spring. xx

  3. Ooooh - seeing that quilt almost (note, I said almost!) makes me want to make one too. And I'm sure you are lobbying for a sheepie quilt - after all those cats can't have all the fun!

  4. Cute blocks. Blanket stitches are tough. Love the cameras what a great idea.

  5. How cute is that rabbit gardening! Although not as cute as you, Baa! Lots of lovely projects happening there. xxx
