From Anna Maria Horner's Handmade Beginnings. I think these booties are great, a very easy pattern to follow, if quite fiddly. I'm not sure the amount of effort (about four hours) actually translates into a useful gift, but Jenni loved them. A sweet decoration at the very least I suppose. I'm trying to work my macro function a bit better. I don'y know why these are blurry. User error no doubt!

I go through spiral bound notebooks like there is no tomorrow. At work, I have to have something to scribble on, otherwise I completely lose focus. A fresh list every day. I think my colleague who holds the stationary cupboard key is sick of the sight of me. So, I designed a slip cover, that makes these notebooks a little prettier, but also is a good way of enjoying a pretty fabric. This is Amy Butler Lotus Wallflower in sky on the cover and Chez Moi Hunky Dory Mosaic in sparrow for the pocket.
I really like the Hunky Dory fabrics. Not as a collection, which I think is too wishy-washy for me, but every time I'm in the quilt shop, I just happen to pull out bolts of the individual fabrics.

I used half a metre of each of the following
Tanya Whelan Darla Ditty Blue
Hobbs Heirloom Premium Cotton 80% cotton and 20% polyester
Why no in focus, full quilt shot (see post below for it lying on the bed)....? Because then you would see the, err, beginner quilter issues. Which I will tell you about later. I can see the problems, but you know what? I. Still. Love. It.

So here is the trial run of my christmas wrapping plan - mum's Kew birthday scarf. It went down well!
Also last weekend, we went to see Johs Hartnett in rain Man in the West End. The man is stunning, as on screen. Did a great job of Charlie Babbitt too. It took a lot of will not to stand by the stage door......
