School's Back

Hi everyone,
Yippie School's Back...
Hope you all had an exciting school holidays, we just stayed home and got some spring cleaning done and some sewing projects finished.
These are the quilts I made for my daughter that I posted about in my previous post.
I am so happy with the pillow cases as they were made out of scraps, its amazing that you can go out and spend a fortune on fabric and be happy with the end result but to use your left over scraps in creative ways is so exciting..
Anyway kiddies are arriving home from school and they will be starving of course, thats all my children do is eat, lucky we dont live in a gingerbread house we would have no roof over our heads...LOL...

Just For Fun

Hi Everyone,
This is a little fun project i did the other day just for fun...
It was a pattern in a homespun magazine, to make a soft toy,
BUT instead of filling him with stuffing i used wheat instead...
Now i can put him in the microwave and warm him up just like a heat bag only with more character...
Anyway hope you all like him, has'nt got a name yet :-( any suggestions ?
I will do another post very soon with photos as i have finished the two quilts i was making for my darling daughter Chelso...

My 1st

This is my very first project,

This is what got me hooked onto patchwork,

We were living with my parents while our house was being built and going to a patchwork class down the road was my escape from the mad house, (4 adults, 3 teenagers, 2 toddlers, and 1 baby) it really was a mad house !!!!
But will forever be grateful to my parents for their help xox

Need help finding a pattern !!!

I have not made these, BUT would love to !
does anyone know who makes these patterns and where i can get them from ?


This is my Magoo from Melly & Me range,

I have quite a few of their pattens now and will post pic's as i make them,
I am going to post some of the projects i have made, might take some time as i am new to this site,,, wish me luck, lol,

Miss Molly
