My daughter Amelia and grandson Noah have gone back home after a whirlwind ten day visit and of course while they were here, we did visit a quilt shop where Amelia picked up these two wooden needle holders which she tarted up. One for me and one for her. Of course mine is the red one.
One day was spent in a furious sewathon while she had the chance. I got baby duties and Amelia raided the stash. She had bought Kellie's Worry Dolls pattern and wanted to make three cushions as gifts for the girls up coming birthdays.
For someone who hadn't done any machine applique or quilting before the workshop, she nailed these and now has the confidence and know how to tackle more of the Don't look Now patterns. I think these look fantabulous.
As for Noah, he was really hard to get photos of, the little guy doesn't stay still. I have a few nice ones though. Here he is modelling the knitted wool jacket I started ten years ago. (yeah you read that right) I hang my head in shame but Amelia sewed it up and I put the hood and buttons on and it can be used by at least one grandchild.
A perfect fit, lol. I actually knitted the same pattern up twice before for when my two were little but it didn't take me that long. Funny that the pattern is still around after thirty years.
I love this one with his glasses on to help correct the squint, pretty hard to keep on when there is no nose bridge. He's a babylicious sweetie but then I'm biased.
Corrie from Retro Mummy has just posted part two of the workshop we took last weekend, I see another photo of Noah over there.
