Busy hands

Scrapbooking and cardmaking have taken a bit of a back seat recently. I needed a break away from paper and have a new obsession with fabric and wool. I have a few project on the go at the moment.

Here are a few I have finished.

A Frilly Dilly bag on it's way to someone special for their birthday next month. I saw this pattern by Janelle Wind and fell in love with it. I just had to make it. I have big plans for more.
Some more bags
And Rach sent me this LINK and of course I just had to try one out. Which of course became two. A boys version is next

I've also crochet two scarves, while watching telly (Mainly cricket, thanks to the men of the house) I need to take some photos. I have also started a crocheted blanket for Jarred. I wanted a nice colourful one, but nope the boy insisted on Geelong Cats colours only. It will be a project that will take some time.
Next on the sewing front, is some baby items. I am going to be an Aunty again in August. I can't wait to get started on some cute little things.
