Playing a bit of a catch up


So it's been a number of weeks now since the 
Bloggers Conference in Christchurch,
but its now that I'm finally getting around to showing you my name badge I made for Fiona Marie
Before meeting each other in person, we had decided to create our badge and $5 present using recycled materials....which luckily fitted in well with what I had in mind...... 
Because Fiona is fond of embroidery, the mini hoop I had hanging around fitted the bill perfectly


Then I filled it with an embroidery of my own...her Pieced shop logo and her name, using vintage sheet fabric, keeping to the recycled ethos.....the only problem was when I popped a safety pin on the back it ended up looking like a third boob....so Fiona saved the day and popped it on to her necklace......mini crisis averted Phew!!!
For her $5 present, I decided to stick with the embroidery theme and make a needle book.... 
I'd never made one, so this was my chance.


Using some recycled denim and some grey felt I came up with this little design, it just came together as I went.


Including colouring it in with my fabric pens


And while I'm at it I can now show you another project I had been secretly working on.... this quilt block that I made for Sammys quilt which you can also read about here
`


There are also a few other things I've been making which I can't show yet,  and some other projects I have yet to photograph......until then here's a pic of my latest knitting project, yet it's grown quite considerably since I took it!


I intend in the next couple of days to show you some of the presents I received.....I was one very lucky girl :))

Absolutely beautiful, so thoughtful and clever. I admire any craft work with needles, threads and wool as it isn't something I do. x
