I think a couple of weeks have gone by without me joining in with the weekly global wonder that is What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday (see Julia's Stamping Ground for more details).

Some crafting has occurred, but mainly designing cards digitally and then just printing them off (which is not always as simple as it should be).

I have been getting annoyed with myself that I am not finding time to continue with my sewing adventures, so have sorted out some fabrics to make a quilt/pillow set for my eldest step-granddaughter's doll pram.

Here are the pretty cotton fabrics -

and I also found some random fleecy fabric, which can be used to make them more cosy.

No idea of where to go from here, except to go through my stash of magazines/Pinterest/YouTube/National Sewing Circle (something I joined last month when they had a ridiculously good subscription offer - lots of videos/articles) and find a pattern/instructions.

Will keep you updated.

I was hoping to be able to show off my Ikea Raskog trolley, which should have been delivered yesterday, but just done the tracking of parcel and for some reason it was returned to the depot last night and now they should be re-attempting today.  I am going to use it for my scrapbooking supplies - in the hope that having them all prettily displayed next to me will actually force me to use them!

I hope that you are all well.

Happy WOYWW to all those that I do not get round to visiting.

  1. The material is beautiful, your Grand-daughter is sure to love it. Hope your trolley arrives as its so frustrating waiting in for deliveries, look forward to seeing it in full working order.

  2. Love the material!
    Not sure if it's useful but Craftsy have lots of free patterns (and ones to buy!) so you might find something useful there which will help with the quilt/pillow set

    sorry, I have no idea how to put a proper link in a comment but if you copy and paste this, I'll take you to the right place.
    Happy WOYWW

  9. Sorry your trolly did not arrive as was planned. I have no doubt you'll fill it up quick enough. just remember, tool - not decoration ;-)
