Snakes and ladders from the latest Homespun Magazine. No:113 Vol 13 No:10
Bright and enjoyable great for young children. Loads of fun and easy to put together just the way l like things to be. Will finish it off with a fabric die and Yo-Yo markers with buttons in four different colour ways.
Next is the bit l do not enjoy so much..... the quilting... probably echo the snakes and ladders. Sorry it is not finished but l got so excited, l needed to show you all. LOL.

Came across this great pattern and had to try it out. Using left over fabric from other projects is always a saving. Some times l wonder why l purchase some colours......but they come in handy eventually.
Never thought of combinding these two colours before, but they set each other of nicely..... great for this project.
Not sure who l am making this for at the moment, will have to wait and see how it all turns out.
Another first.....keep watching to see if you have guessed right.

Made a matching bag for traveling inspired by Homespun magazine to keep you slippers or lingerie neatly packed away..... made another eye mask also inspired by Homespun magazine but this time put this lovely soft fabric which helps you to enjoy the whole experience....so soft. Added these knitted slippers which keep you toes warm and pampered.
This whole package is for Rachel for Christmas.
Made all these extras with left over fabric from the Amy Butler bag l made her last year. What a bonus.....
Am in the process of making a towel and face washer with her initials embroidered upon it.
She will not see this post as Rachel does not know that l blog.....at least l think that is right.
Now l am off to do some well overdue mending for the boys.........also the neighbors child needs his suit pants taken up for his formal.
