A scarf, two aprons and a couple of blocks.....

I've told you before about the lovely scarves at Maya Kotan

On my trip to UK last year I was given the opportunity to put some colours together

and look what was given to me....

Here's the ticket that shows who made it... the design name (see the FIO - that's me!!) and the colours used

my very own unique scarf... made from the colours I had chosen

how lucky am I?

PS ... there is a SALE on at Maya Kotan at the moment......

Jude (my DIL) suggested that I could cut the woven fabric and make something..... I'm thinking about it?

... and so onto aprons for little peoples who want to help nana in the kitchen ...

On one of my 'op shop' hunts for pre-loved fabric I found some unused sheeting.... not wonderful quality but I like the pictures.....

.... so that is what I used to make up a couple of little aprons ....

I used a pattern from Annette that I had won in a giveaway.... soooooooooo eeeeeaaaassssyyyy and designed in a way that only one piece of cord is used which can tighten or loosen depending on the size.

The edges aren't hemmed - just went round them with the overlocker - that made it even easier to do!

Perhaps I need one of these in a large size for me.... that can adapt to my shape?
(wonder how many bears I would take)

Righto, Gotto Go.... I have blocks for North Pole quiltalong to do.....

Oh... and it's
