Priorities....

Finally some time to sew. Guilt ridden (but enjoyable) obligations first...

A library bag for the new school girl, made after her first day, but before her first library day - phew. We picked the fabrics together.


I am loving this colour combo at the moment.

Second, a quilt for my not-so-baby boy. The cowboy quilt is taking so long to handquilt. He loves the airplanes.



This one took an afternoon and one evening. All machine stitched, even the binding. I liked the method I used this time...quite neat for a machine binding.


Finally he has his own quilt to sleep under.

And, whilst sharing some crafting, here is a little outfit I made for a new baby at the end of last year. The bird design was from Anna over here. Very simple, very cute and of course all packaged up with some bows.




Let the crafting continue....

Indeed!

Remind me to have a baby so that you can make one of those gorgeous bird singlets.

Mr E's quilt is lovely too.

What a lovely crafty post. I should have made Lucinda a library bag but she has been given one now. After seeing yours I'm inspired to give it a go anyway. Fabulous quilt, I LOVE boys quilts and that's a beauty. And I'm with Jo, wish someone had made me some cute baby stuff like that when I had mine - it's gorgeous.

It's great to get back into the crafting again...and you certainly didn't hold back. Everything looks wonderful! My fave is the quilt for your little boy. I like the diamond quilting pattern you did and the fabric combination is superb.
