I have decided to join in on the 150 Canadian Women sew/quilt along. This is the first block and that's how far along I am. I am not a red person but as I go along, I am finding reds to add to the stash for completing these blocks. I'm not keen on 6.5" blocks but since next year is Canada's 150th birthday, I thought I should do something to commemorate it. The stories about the Canadian women that go with these blocks are very interesting. Let me know if you want to join in and I'll send you the link (it's free) or just search the internet for 150 Canadian Women and you will find all the information you need.
The twins are growing so quickly and they needed longer sleep sacks.
The cat fabric on the right is directional and since I didn't have enough fabric to make both the back and the front go the correct way, I decided that the front could seem like it's upside down but when the little one wears it, it will be the right way for her.
Here's the knitting I am currently working on when not sewing. I have never made anything with circular needles before and so this is a first. They are gifts so I can't say what they are. In order to mark the beginning of my rows, I used an elastic band. I started it at my daughter's house and needed something so - "necessity is the mother of invention." It works and that's all I care about - and besides, it was free.
Just a snippet of the Frozen fabric I purchased at Value Village. There's just over a metre there. It sparkles. I don't know what on earth I will do with it but since the little girls have a book on Olaf, Anna and Elsa, I thought I could use it in the future for something.
I've got to go now and sew up a little gift while this little guy is napping.
Teemu was intrigued with a musical rocking Santa.
He's a very musical little guy. He loves spatulas because he plays air guitar with them. His mom video taped him playing the harmonica earlier this fall while walking along on the street and just recently, she taped him plunking away on a big piano. He may end up as a musician...
