A.W.O.L.

This past week, my blogging has gone A.W.O.L...ha ha!
But, I did manage to finish off a few things for the website and Etsy and a few gifts for children's birthdays etc..
A girlfriend of mine has just had twins - Milly and Emerson, so I have to think of something for a boy now...Even having two boys myself, I still find it difficult to come up with something handmade for a boy (I don't have many boy colours in my fabric stash) I could make a softie... Any suggestions??

The "Liberty of London" fabric frogs turned out nicely...and they love one another already...
Everybody...Oh...!

Some new rosey rings...Glue problem solved!

Childrens pencil roll with notepad...

I made a "jingle ball" for a little baby recently and decided some more would be nice for the website too...Inside is a little bell inside a ball (like the bells you buy for your budgie) then it is stuffed with fibre fill.
I am also working on my "Christmas" section for the website which should be added soon.
Gosh, fancy thinking about Christmas already...but then time does fly and it will be here before we know it...I had better get my sewing fingers into action....
Hope everyone is well, Kathryn.

Gorgeous new goodies, those frogs are so cute! Ah yes, it is definitely time to think about Christmas - i think April might be about the right time to start to get stuff done, but of course, who is ready then?!!!

How about bights? Do you have bright fabric? Have seen some terrific animal strings for bassinets, pushers, etc - simple shape, stitched, stuffed and threaded onto ribbon/string, etc. It's a thought for twins you could make them same same but different!

Funny with the frogs; Yesterday I found my mother´s frog pattern which she used when I was a child. They looked like yours, can they be relatives? I must make some one day... You have made so many wonderful things! I like them!
