A Quilt for Charlotte

I have been busy making a quilt for Charlotte(seen here) she was 2 last week. I used a couple of patterns and a bit of my own imagination for it.

OK......... can someone tell me

WHO STOLE MARCH?
It seems like I have missed a month!
Not sure what I have been doing
I have been doing a bit of sewing.

Luggage tags

back when I first started blogging I received this as a gift and I love it.
It is on my camera bag.
I have made a few similar ones as gifts.

then at Christmas Gemma received this from a friend. It was at the time I was busy making things for our stall and Gemma thought these where a good idea.

Luggage tags

I played around with plastic and fabric and got very frustrated with the plastic so these were born.
I made a whole alphabet they are cute but very time consuming.

and are better than the piece of yellow ribbon I had on my luggage

Then with some more playing these were quick and easy.

Kaffe Fassett anyone

Luggage tags

the reason they are so quick and easy is I bought myself one of these ..........
a Teflon Foot for Bernie and sewing plastic is no longer a problem.
