April Wip's

As promised here are my Wip's. I'm going to try and post any that I have on the first of the month and update them during the month. Well I'm going to try :-)

First one.
Milo's quilt. I've decided to call him by his name now, I don't think it will do any harm, plus his name is on here. This is only a small quilt 21" x 23" and as you can see is based on the Mr Men. It's also my first attempt at applique. There's still a long way t
o go before it's finished.


Second one
Another quilt, for a friends little girls 3rd birthday which is this Sunday. It will never be finished on time as you can see... It's the same size as Milo's . Notice the tree similarity with some fabric from Buttonberry, who by the way have just added a lovely Tote pattern onto their Blog. Go check it out.


Third one
A friend for Periwinkle. This is the body and I just love the colour.


Now this is the one that I finished. I'm pleased with how it turned out but am disappointed because it was for Baby G and it doesn't fit .I mean it's nowhere near, can't even get it over his head. I followed the pattern for 6-12 mths and even made the body and sleeves a bit longer because I know he's a bit bigger than the average 8 mth old but to no avail. Now I have to decide what to do with it?


So that's my Wip's for April.

I've also been Tagged by Tess but I'm going to save that for my next post, hope that's ok....

Hope no-one gets any nasty jokes played on them-- Happy April Fools everyone.

what lovely things you've been making! I did the same with a sweater for Miss K, it didn't fit by the time it was finished, but we had one very smartly dressed teddy bear.......

Hi Lisa,

Could not find your email address so went down this route. We are just after good supply shops, local government agencies available for support & funding. And the main thing is if you hear about any craft fairs up there. Be it it might be last minute but people might go and have a look and then report back with good/ bad reviews and contact details.

Thanks

Love the quilts!

Thanks for getting back to me, I have offered to help Vanessa if I can so we could help together. I do drive and have been to the craft shops mentioned on your blog, they are so wonderful I could spend a fortune.

Can't wait to see them finished! My boys also grew so quickly & they have these great big heads ... still hard to fit them into shirts. My DH says it's because they have big brains! :)
I just think you are too fab for being able to knit ... I just cant!

Hi there! Wanted to pop over and say hello after I saw your lovely comment on my blog :) I LOVE those quilts! How cute! I have yet to tackle a quilt, but I feel the need for a beach blanket soon. Maybe I'll get over my quilting fear by early summer...
