I made *how* many?

Here are the love birds I made as Easter gifts for all the nieces/nephews this year. I ended up making 30!!!! I know! It didn't take as long as I thought it would actually - only about 4 to 5 hours all up and this was spread out over a week or so. I loved making them - they're all so very different to each other.

And my attempt at an "arty" shot :-)

This one is "just hangin'"

This one looks a bit pensive.

and this one either needs to go to the toilet or is holding onto a *really* good secret.

These are such fun to make.

My first Ottobre pattern and family photos

I finally made my first pattern from the Ottobre mags I got a subscription to at Christmas time. It is the shirt (21) from Ottobre issue 3/2007. It was the backorder I got when I subscribed. I made the 116cm for Oscar who is just in size 5's. It fits him perfectly so will be making the next size up for the next one.

It is a lovely quilting fabric I got on sale at Spotlight and some snaps left over from my nappy-making days. I love it - went together really quickly.

Here's a photo of it from the website of the professional photographer who took our family shots last weekend. She did a great job don't you think?

Thanks :)

Cutting out day!

Today, even with a head cold (poor me!), I am determined to have a cutting out day. Or half day, it's now 1pm, but we had the morning out and having a play so now that we're home and luncheoned it is time for me to get organised!

I have a heap of Easter Chicks to make for next weekend and a whole heap of other projects as well.

Eep! Better get to it!
