Happy Birthday Sarah

I whipped up another sock monkey this week for my dear friend Sarah's birthday. They are so quick and simple to make, just click on the link to find the instructions. This time I put some pipe cleaners in the tail to give it a bit of shape!

Love My Mug Bag

When I recently attended Helen Stubbings' Workshop here in Tassie I noticed everyone except me had The Cynthia Book "Love my Mug Bag" from Australian Homespun magazine No 36, Vol 7 No 4. I must've missed where it said on the "What to Bring List - one Mug Bag!!" It's become an essential item at quilting retreats. So this weekend I made my own so I'll never feel left out again!

Pincushions and Noah's Ark BOM

What a busy week I've hard, I've been juggling 4 crafty projects, scrapbooking , 4 engineering projects plus writing a business case, it's a wonder my brain switches off at night sometimes.

Anyway I'm only going to tell you about the crafty stuff.

Firstly I bloghopped over to Blueberry Lane and found a great competition to win an out of print book by Lynette Anderson and to enter I have to post a picture of my pincushion so here it is.

My son gave him to me years ago, it wasn't meant to be a pincushion it just ended up that way. I've got several others but none have the sentimental value that this one has.

I've also finished Lynette Anderson's first block from her free, yes I said FREE, Noah's Ark BOM. Lynette's been blogging for a year and is posting the BOM as a thank-you to all her readers.

Aren't they gorgeous, the stitchery is only 2" square and was a quick project to do. I can't wait to do the rest! Thank-you Lynette for being so generous!

I'll show some pictures of the scrapbooking another post, still a little bit to do!
