I bought the blue mix yarn before we knew the baby was a girl but, as I told Debbie, it's okay for a girl to wear blue. My two certainly did!
Debbie gave me this orange-mix yarn to make something with so I made another smaller and plainer cardie -
This is a wee pair of bootees that I started last night to go with the orange-mix cardie. Same pattern as I blogged about here.
I've started a ripple crochet blankie for the baby too. Fun times!
I sewed a new bag for Joanna. It's the same pattern that I first blogged about here. Here's the bag -

And the inside of the bag -
I decided a few months ago that I wanted to be able to use all my machines at once - or at least not have to move the machines around each time I wanted to use one of them. Here's what my sewing machine table used to look like - my sewing machine is at the front (with its blue lid up) with the overlocker on the right and the embroidery machine behind (with its black lid up). Way too crammed to be effective!
It took a few days to get it all shifted - with a lot of help from Douglas - but we did it. Here are my machines all sitting side by side.
I can now set the embroidery machine going and can sew something on the sewing machine or overlocker whilst it's chugging away. I love this arrangement!
Finally, what did I do with the reindeer, you asked? I cut them to shape:
Backed them with snowmen fabric -
Sewed binding around them -
- and made them into bunting!
It's really hard to get a decent photo of the bunting as it's so wide but I hope you get the idea! I am so pleased with the way it turned out!
I have a few other things on the go which I hope to be able to share soon. Watch this space, as they say!
