Today we are revealing our #12 Mini Mania Challenge - This month was Pineapple Log Cabin. We popped over to Little Mushroom Cap for a template that would finish 3" . I printed my foundation papers onto tracing paper, I find that it is so easy to use, especially on these tiny pieces and it tears out easily too - no fear of ripping your stitches! A pad of 40 sheets is only £3.99 from my local stationers .
I made a test block with fabric from my scrap bin
I thought that the blocks actually resembled a Pineapple ( because all pineapples have turquoise bits don't they?) so I added a top!
We had a trip down to see Little Miss last week and after a rather horrid journey home (2 hour journey took 3½ hours!) I picked this up from the door mat!
I won this in a give-away over on Instagram. It came from the
Fat Quarter Shop in America in less than a week!
|took it to bed with a cuppa!|
You know when you are on the last leg of moving all of your stuff from one room to another? Well, it has taken a while, because the old room was not waiting for anything. But I opened a little box and found all these pieces cut out.
mini quilt that I made nearly 2 years ago!
So a quick recap on the tutorial and I set to sewing them all together.
The third sewing finish - I have added the finishing touches to my
Higham Piecemakers Christmas Challenge clock. The reveal will be at group in a couple of weeks so that will be kept under wraps until then.
After finishing the crochet blanket, I thought I would tidy up all the scraps of yarn that were sitting in my basket, I used a simple free Beanie Hat pattern and made these bright babies. They will be added to the Shoe Box appeal boxes
I have had this skein of yarn ...... for a while and have been looking for the right shawl/scarf pattern to use it.
I have fallen in love with this one.

But I would need two skeins so that will have to wait until I go to Yarndale in September
So this yarn will be made up into this pattern

Darling Daughter has had a little trip to Iceland, and brought me these two balls of Icelandic yarn.
And then Yesterday this little cutie made a surprise visit ! So all of my lovely family were at home together for lunch ( because you can always stretch a roastie to three extra mouths can't you?) A few hours and the house looked like a bomb but who cares?
