I do however have a couple of projects to share that were finished either on our holiday or since then.
We had two new babies to visit in Denmark - a boy and a girl, and I made each a baby quilt as a present. I cut it pretty fine - sewing on the binding in the days before we left, and then embrodering their names once we arrived. Both were made mostly from a Riley Blake fat quarter bundle called Saddle Up, with a few extras thrown in.
For Miss J's quilt, I made 9-patch blocks then quartered and rearranged with a spotty border.
And little S's quilt - charm squares with solid borders (and more spots!)
Too cute, non?
For a less adorable model, I also finished my honey cowl.
I worked on it in the car on the trip to Copenhagen (& Malmo), and on the train to Cardiff, and finished it somewhere between Cardiff and York (it could have been anywhere - it was a very long day!) It was just in time too - it got chilly quickly =)
And keeping warm with hot chocolate at Hyde Park Winter Wonderland =)
The pattern is available for free on the Madelinetosh website, and the yarn is BC Garn's gorgeous Semilla, from Suzy Hausfrau.
And one last finished crafty project - a Christmas stocking for baby Will
(Please excuse the tiny/crappy photos!)
This is my third stocking - I made one last year, and one in 2008. I am a bit in love with that fabric on the back - dancing penguins! - and with the stripey lining =)
And that pretty much wraps up crafty 2012 =)
I have some exciting plans for 2013 - some stitchy bits and loads more papery fun (i do so love my martha punches, and growing stash of washi tape).
I hope everyone has a fabulous and safe start to the New Year, and lots of fun in 2013!
