EB New year Swap- What I made!!!!

On EB we had a New Year Sewing Swap that was to be opened on Valentines Day....For the swap I got Nikoll (Queenlatina) and I made her a thread catcher pin cushion.......
 I embroidered her name on the front.
I made myself one too. 
All wrapped ready to go!
Hope you like it Nikoll and get plenty of use out of it!!!! I have used mine heaps already.

A nice suprise in the mail!!!!!

The other day when arriving home there was a large yellow envelope hanging out my mailbox, I got it out and looked at it and assumed it was my swap item from EB.....So I left it and didn't open it as opening day was to be today Valentines Day.......But I was thinking about it and thinking no my swap partners name isn't Bec.....Then it dawned on me that is was Bec off EB that I had been chatting too about the swap and she was asking my advice on her fabric choices for her swap partner.......She was sending me a pattern......But I felt the envelope and it was too big and soft to be pattern.  So I ripped open the envelope and on top was my pattern and then there was a little parcel all nicely wrapped in silver paper with a nice bow...Sorry no pics, I couldn't wait to find out what was inside....
Inside was  a nice little surprise for AJ........
A super hero cape with AJ name on it.

And it is reversible 
Thank you so much to Bec for the unexpected gift and the lovely card that was attached you wrote so really kind words......Bec your sewing is fantastic too so neat and the materials are just great too!!!!
Thank you-Oh and I will 'pay it forward'......So all my EB buddies watch your post as I have someone special to thank.......

Undies for AJ.

Little undies for AJ........

CarlaC Raglan Top!

This is my Feb Challenge the CarlC Raglan top!! It was so quick and easy to make.......I am not sure I like it though, the colours that is!!!!!
Oh well could always make matching pants and use a PJ's......
With contrasting sleeves! You can't see it too well in the photo but there is blue in the main material and the sleeves do match it, but for some reason it looks different in the photo!!!!

Phoebe Elephant!

I made this Elephant to put with a Christening Present for a friends baby!!
I was to lazy to do the eyes so I just brought some sew on googly eyes instead.
I also embroidered the blanket on the elephant with the date and on the other side is the boys name, so it can be kept as a keepsake!

Bloomers for Dominic!

Little bloomers/nappy covers! I the first pair I made with the diggers on them were too big for Dominic so I had to make another pair with little dinosaurs they fit him perfect!
