Home made Ironing Surface

I'm shamelessly re-posting a picture from a recently posted project in progress (an rppp if you will).
I forgot to tell *you* all about the awesome Ironing Surface I made a couple of weeks ago. So I was busting out of my sewing room, over the past little while I saw some YouTube vids on people making their own Ironing Surface and TADA,, heres mine.. it is MDF with two layers of wool batting warm n white (or something to that effect) it is quite thin hence the two layers. and Covered with Tartan.. had to use it for something!
the only thing the internet forgot to tell me is that when using things like Tru-Grid Pellon, that the printed grid is on  the reverse side to the glue, makes sense.. but being a dark surface you cant see the grid. Easy fix, throw a piece of white calico over the top.
Anyway back to the Ironing Surface... its big and it sits on the trestle table, stores upright against a wall, and being a lot harder than an ironing board gives nicer pressed seams.
That is all.

OMG OMG its there, its there!

My Toy Society Drop was posted today!!

See my previous post here to see what I'm babbling all about!

Mini Monster

Okay, last one for today.. promise..

This is a little mini monster I put together to try out the little bell-in-a-ball rattle thingee's I bought from David's Emporium (visit them - love love love it) I ended up using two little balls to make his rattle sound nicer, one just wasnt enough, they were only 30c each so no major really :)

And you can never have enough skillfully placed product advertisements right? right?

hehe, enjoy!

Baby Girl - Hope

This is a quick post to share this wee blanket I recently made for the granddaughter of one of mums work people. Although it came together quite quickly, I'm really pleased with the feel of it. I am running out of that awesome blue seersucker though! Will be very sad when that is all gone.

Thought I'd give a little sneaky peak into the space invaders quilt, it was quite exciting seeing it come together.. now is the tricky bit of sewing all the seams.. and I think I should have read the instructions a bit better.. uh oh.. quilting this bad boy is gonna be tough..
