WIP Wednesday.

My sister's quilt is almost done!
I'm half way through the handstitching of the binding.

I've fallen in love with everything about this quilt and I think I will be doing another, this time for our own bed.
I'm proud to say, I've even done the machine quilting on this.  The fact that it's a quilt as you go means I can!

I've also been doing a lot of knitting but I've forgotten to take photographs...Der!
With the yarn above I've knitted a pair of bed slippers for myself, my daughter and my grand daughter.  I've also knitted a pair of leg warmers for Miss Five, but unfortunately, they don't stay up when she's dancing.  I think the acrylic yarn just doesn't spring back.  I'm not a fan of acrylic yarn but I just couldn't afford to pay seven dollars a ball for pure wool.  I'm going to have to put my thinking cap on to work around this hitch.

Laugh out loud (I'll let you!) Here are my slippers.  I'm wearing socks under them. I wear them around the house and it's amazing how warm they keep my tootsies. 

And I found this delicious fabric on sale at Post Office Patchwork Glenbrook.
I can feel a few new cushions coming up for our lounge room.
In the meantime, I'm planning my next quilt, a commission to complement this quilt.
Baby Ethan now has a sister and he is no longer a baby but the cutest little boy.
Their mummy would like a matching quilt for the new addition.
Like the first one I made, this one will be going to England.
Well, I have soooo many quilting projects on the go...but really they're all in remission...one day...
If you look here, all these quilts except for completed quilt 2 (Dr Seuss)and quilt 4, have not seen any progress.

And now...I've got laundry to peg out.
