Japanese Fabric, a wallhanging is born

Thanks to a very very clever friend getting some work put out by the Lonely planet about Japan, I have been dreaming about the stash of Japanese fabrics I had sitting there waiting for a project.

Saw a something a while ago in this style of fabric so have whipped it up into a similar design. Shocking photo but will post a proper one when I have put a border on. No idea how yet but that is the next task.

That and might make a little crane out of fabric for the hole.
Will see....hope to have it finished next week so check back.

THE Block

This is just the best toy ever and thanks to a scrap booking friend with great ideas have big plans for Christmas presents and photo's on fabric. It is a fabric cube that just folds out and out and out and so on.

Easy to make.....(I promise Shannon)

There is a new baby.....

Well, way to get me to really knit in a hurry. The beautiful Sienna decided to arrive 5 weeks early so the cot blanket quickly became a pram blanket. I used a heap of different wools and just knitted 9 squares and then crocheted the edge. Managed to finish it the morning I popped in to see her. It has now taken pride of place on the edge of the cot eagerly waiting her to come home and snuggle under it.
