Dad decided this morning he didn't want a monster after all he actually wanted a monkey, So I have been on a sock hunt. Found these cute tights in BHS for £1 each thought they would make great gibbons and means I actually will get one for myself, Cant decide if I will keep the pink or Blue.
Brought the beige with white spots as well, this is actually Oilcloth, Decided Im going to make myself a lunch box with it, to be able to keep everything in. Amazing what you can find out of scrap bins in the local Dunelm Mill shops!!! Cost me £1 for a meter!
Also my final Bargain was this top, inside it states was part of a pair, but had the bottoms missing, its actually a pj top but I love it so much might wear it around the day, or make it into a cushion cover, not sure yet. Might do both over time once Iv had enough of wearing it!
Fell in love with this fabric on the market, love how the big strawberries match the little ones, and then felt I had to have something to go with it. Not sure what I will make yet so I might just add it to my stash till the summer holiday.

I know basic knitting (I can knit, purl etc and with a few books infront of me I can do fancy stitches 2)
Does anyone know a good pattern? or give me some idea of instructions on what to do???

I just love the fact that all of this fabric was created from scraps, Think the inside was a skirt my grandmother made when I was a baby. I love recycling things as often as I can, and those that regularly read will remember I like putting stories into my work. So as before this has stories, the Cord being from a pair of dungrees (afraid they only suit little kids not big kids like me) the pinks are scraps from quilts, and the black gingham is a cut up blouse that I made last year when I first brought my overlocker.

This is a piece I made my first year in uni, I got as far as adding the sashing and decided the black was too harsh, But couldn't decide what would look good and didn't have the heart to unpick something that took me hours to create!!
Again Suggestions would be really good on what you think I should replace it with.
Thought you should see this post first! When I moved to Worcester, I found this amazing Quilting shop and had to buy this pattern and fabric for the bag, Its been sat on my to do list for 6 months now, thought it was finally time to complete it.
Not quite happy with some bits, the bottom seems to be a little higgldy piggaldy, but never mind.
I love the two pockets created on the inside from joining the two seperate parts together. (as you can see i couldn't resist using this bag, so sorry for not emptying my bits out of it for the photo)
I had to put the above photo in this blog, as I wanted to you see how I altered it slightly, I have an amazing computerised sewing machine that Allows me to quilt really interesting patterns, these along the bottom(seen on the plain green fabric) are little kisses!!
Hope you Enjoy this, and the others to come, please any questions don't hesitate to ask.
