Baby Owl is finished Block #1

Hi everyone :) Thank you for your comments on my previous posts, its always lovely to see you have visited and any input or tips you might have :)
talking of tips... I have one for anyone using the plastic snap frames, I've been using it for the first time on my baby afghan blanket, I really like the frame but where it snaps onto your fabric it can pull and snag the stitches so I bought some thin but strong cleaning cloths and cut them to size and put them in between the fabric and the piece of plastic that snaps on... it works a treat :) no more snagged stitches or pulled material.

I've finished the first woodland baby, the baby owl :)
he was a treat to stitch. yesterday I realised this blanket will need a backing as you cant leave all the threads exposed to baby... and do I have a sewing machine.. NO
So onto the Internet I went ( its a wonderful thing) :)
and ordered a sewing machine, that's being delivered on Tuesday, its been years and years since I touched a sewing machine..but a new adventure awaits :) maybe new hobbies will come from my new toy lol
you never know!!

happy stitching :)

A Start on the baby blanket

Hi Everyone in blogland :) I've made a start on the baby afghan blanket and love the little woodland babies :) The owl is the first to do so have got started on that one.

I'm using the new plastic clip frame for the first time that I bought and I have to say it took me a few days to get used to it but now I have and am enjoying using it and I like the way it doesn't leave any marks on the fabric when you take it off.
another update on this little baby next week :)
happy stitching :)

The postman knocks

Today the postman delivered my baby afghan and chart :) it looks very nice.

 I also ordered one of these plastic clip together frames, I've never used one before and wonder if any of you have and what are they like to use? I thought it may be better than a hoop, I usually use a frame but don't think I'll get all the baby blanket on there lol well only time will tell how I get on with the clip frame but please feel free to let me know what YOUR experiences are.

happy stitching :)

Woodland Babies

I Thought I would start making a little gift now for my son and his wife to be, they are getting married at the end of this month and plan to start a family straight away so I thought I would make them a woodland baby blanket. it looks beautiful and SOooo cute :) I will stitch some of that in between making my English Rose picture and hopefully I will finish it by the time a baby comes along lol :)

happy stitching :)
