Sunburnt Quilts - Tiger slippers

Sunburnt Quilts - Slippers

When I saw these little slippers I couldn’t resist buying them. They only came in baby and toddler sizes.  I would have loved to buy them for older children, too.

I have been completing a few little stitcheries.

The bird is from Teddlywinks, the tree is from Marg Low Designs and the star has completely gone from my memory. I am sure it will come to me later.

I have finally been able to return to my Jacobean embroidery and have made some progress.

Still lots to go, but I will get there.

In keeping with our cold weather I have been crocheting hats.  Not for me – they are doll size. I will make a couple of scarves to go with them.

In amongst all of this I was the lucky recipient of a fabric panel and jelly roll from Deb Strain from her new Halloween fabric range.

I am looking forward to playing with this gorgeous fabric.

I have several sewing days planned with friends this week. I think that it’s the best way to spend these cold Winter days that we are having.

Cheers, Karen
