Monster Shirt & Generous Giveaway mention.....

After being inspired by the cute shirt my sil over at twolittlefishes gave to Liam for his birthday & Sam at Jettas Nest fantastic shirt appliques I made up this little monster one the other day. It got the thumbs up approval of both Em & Liam so I may have to make one in pink too!!
Also for a most fabulous giveaway head over to Little Munchkins where she has a double giveaway of a gorgeous pattern & some beautiful ribbon - thank you Novy!

Remember the vintage sheets......

That I blogged pictures of a few weeks back? Well I randomly took a few from the blues & greens & in a mad sewing frenzy late one night decided to try a bit of rough - no measuring or using rotary cutter - too impatient for that - log cabin patchwork. I am at a loss whether to do more of these squares in different colour ways & make up a quilt or to make this into a cushion?? What do you think?

One COOL Grandma!

Yep I think my kids are pretty lucky! I know Grandma Spunky would probably never forgive me for putting up this pic, but the kids thought it was pretty cool that Grandma could keep up with them (for a little while anyway :) )on the trampoline & so did I!! We love you Grandma Spunky!!

We LOVE Super Liam!!

Thank you so much to my talented SIL (from twolittlefishes) Liam loves his "Super Liam" the first thing he did after zooming him through the air was to take him for a ride in his truck (to make it there he MUST be special - it is a spot usually reserved for favourite trains & cars).

Vintage Sheets......

Here are a pile of vintage sheets

Oh & here are some more...

and some more

Yep here comes another pile...

& look here is a wardrobe full of them

Aren't they lovely!

This is what I spent some of my time on the weekend sorting. It used to be bigger, but out of love for Mr Spunky who started to think I was having some sort of affair with my fabric :) I downsized to a neater size - well something that the wardrobe can actually contain!

I have usually used my vintage linen for clothing, but have an itching to do a few patchwork quilts..I have however started with something a little smaller & will hopefully post a pic soon.

It's GIVEAWAY Time!!

I honestly can't remember the last time I did a giveaway & it is certainly about time. I often see that so many people including Little Munchkins who has a lovely patten giveaway at the moment are doing giveaways & it has motivated me to get my act into gear.

So here is the giveaway....

I just love this fabric - it is new quilters weight/quality cotton with the sweetest vintage style of circus print - it reminds me of so many illustrations from books when I was little. There is a 1/2 metre of this fabric up for grabs. All you need to do is leave a comment & you are welcome to mention it on your blog, but this is not necessary. I will hopefully pick a winner at random in the next week or two.

A party skirt...

My baby girl is no baby any more & is growing ever so fast. I went to raid her summer wear & it is all too small. And as she was invited to a little girls party we needed an outfit & one which was quick & easy to whip up. I just loved this moda rose fabric & wish I had bought more of it. I teamed it with an Amy Butler spot & just added some applique to a plain t-shirt to match. Em was happy & it passed the twirl-worthy test, so I am sure we will get a little wear out of this one!
