Ideas...

I've had lots of ideas lately for little projects, all of which I've been jotting in my little notebook that I carry in my handbag. I decided to start with the smallest, and simplest - a small needlebook and pincushion.


I got this fabric from Silly Gilly in a giveaway and knew immediately what I wanted to use it for.

I picked these buttons for their stitching detail around the edge - so cute!

And I also made my very first, Renee-designed softie! I've had this idea in my head for a while and it was nice to see it in fabric too. Here's just a sneak peek as I am still not entirely happy with her face.

Can you tell what she is?


Only 2 days until I head to Melbourne for the Spring Stitch In with Rosie and Leanne! I can't wait!

I hope you have a fantastic time with Leanne and Rosie - I went to Day of Inspired Stitches in Adelaide last April with these girls and they were delightful. I'm making plans to go to next year's Spring Stitch In.
