I must admit I was delighted she chose it because these are some of my favorite colors. I even bought some extra fabric to have on hand for other blankets. I think the dachshunds could go well for kids and adults alike.
This a gift I made for my other friend Sam's little girl, Claire. The stitching on the bunny poppet was a little more primitive than what I normally do but that's what the pattern called for.
While we were at the fabric store, I had to check out the books. I couldn't resist this one on Cath Kidston designs. I love practically anything Cath Kidston.
I haven't been getting in my sewing room much but I can dream about future projects I'd love to make from this book, like these padded hangers:
Or this lovely jewelry roll...The only problem is I don't have much jewelry so I'd have to find some other use for it.
And for those of you wondering what was in those green Valentine packages from my husband on my previous post, here they are. I was delighted to get this seed sprouter starter kit. My friend Merry got one of these a couple months ago and I immediately wanted to get one but was too cheap. I really do like alfalfa sprouts on my sandwiches! I was amazed my hubby actually remembered what I'd said! He usually doesn't have the best memory.
And here's the rest of what was in that box—a bunny with the cutest crocheted pink and cream slippers (made in Denmark of all places), a vintage tablecloth and napkins, and a tiny original oil painting on a wood block with a tea theme. I think my husband must actually listen when I visit shops and remark about something I like because these seemed familiar. I don't like to buy things like this too much because they just seem frivolous but I must admit, they sure do make great gifts!
