Vintage Skirt and more Vinnies fabric

sI used a really basic pattern for this skirt, high waist band and big pockets. I actually made this last school holidays and have only just taken a photo of it. The fabric was one of my vintage finds. The colours are so vibrant which is good for me because I've been told I need to wear more colour.Typical of me to put beige, black and white with it though.

Not the best photograph but I was stoked to pick up a few metres of this Michael Miller fabric at Vinnies on Sunday while out op shopping with my little sister. I'm thinking summer pajamas with red trim for Rosa or actually, pj pants for me....even better!

I also found this gorgeous batik piece for only a few dollars. Have a look at this sweet blog. I stumbled across it last week and fell in love with the sweet kids the possibilities are endless for this piece of yumminess....(is that a word?)

Red Rocket Quilt

I have finally completed the top of Harvey's Red Rocket quilt. I know it's hardly a red quilt but I started with the rocket fabric and went from there. The Anna Maria Horner teal diamonds were a late addition, I really love the teal, it goes well with the acid green.
There is a bit of Prints Charming Starburst and Plaid in there and of course my one of my favourites, Amy Butler's Lotus Dots. The pale blue is a chambray from spotlight. All in all I'm pretty happy with the combination and the little man is too.

Now it's of to the quilter, which will give me time to think of what to bind it in.

Last of the April Beehive

This is my 6.5 " circle block for Tanya for the Beehive. Very quick and easy unlike the last one.

More Fabulous Fabric

Yet another vinnies find. This is a huge piece of fabric, would make a great table cloth for a kids party if I don't cut it up before hand. I love how it looks like cross stitch with the alphabet and lots of folkish images.

I have been sewing Harvey's quilt and exactly the same colours in this fabric are in his quilt fabrics. What a shame I have already sewn half, this would have looked great.
