Easter Sewing!

This weeks snappyfriends challenge was something starting with 'E'...so I decided to show my Easter Sewing. We went camping for a couple of days over easter, and I did manage to do some hand sewing. Another challenge I also had, was given to us by Helen at the gathering...to make something out of a fat 1/16th piece of fabric. I was lucky with the fabric I was given, as it was a really pretty! I wanted to make something that I didn't already have, so went with a bookmark for myself and one for my daughter (miss 8) who loves to read.(Marg Low Bookmark patterns from gathering goody bag) Thankyou so much Helen for the fabric and the challenge! Pop over here and here to see some other projects from Helens challenge.
I also made a Leanne Beasley pincushion...pattern purchased from the gathering last weekend...and yes it is also rose scented!

And I wanted to make a needlecase and pincushion to match the bag I made last week, so I made up Gail Pans needlecase (which was in our goody bag last weekend) I think her designs are so sweet and just love her little birdie!


I hope you all had a lovely easter and managed to get some sewing done!

Lisa, I love all the stitcheries you have done. They look fantastic. It makes me feel like putting down those knitting needles of mine and start my stitching. Kind regards, Anita.

Lovely little needlecase :-) I made it some time ago,after I had been to a Quiltcourse with Leanne B and Gail P. Can you believe they came all the way up to Norway! And so did Lynette A. It was ever so lovely to meet them.Must show some pictures on my blog on day.
Happy Quilting.
