So here is my intrepid fearless (not) Felix, and his first foray into sewing. He made a Plurbit from that awesome book Softies.

Don’t you love how he made them pants? Almost as much as if you pull the pants down on the first Plurbit, Mr Smuggle, up there on your right, you’ll find a doodle and bottom. Oh yes you will.

The wedding quilt. So very proud of this one:

A throw quilt, 65″x62″, for their lounge room, in E’s favourite colours. 
There were some adjustments due to me stuffing up my seam allowances on those smaller four patch squares.
but MAN, am I proud of how it came together. Gorgeous ruby reds, stunning cornflower blues, punctuated with black
The colours came from a rug they have on their living room floor which they picked up on one of their intrepid travels through the one of the ‘stans.
The back is black linen with a row of the fabrics used on the front – such was my love of them all I wanted to showcase them twice.
I also relearnt how to do binding but did not finish it by hand. It was a time and sanity issue. 

None of these photos do it justice – done in poor light with the crappy camera. I hope you ‘get’ it though!


Today was a day sans children. I got some blocks done for Grover’s quilt but nowhere near as many as I’d hoped. I wasted my precious time today and I’m crabby for it tonight. Harrumph.

    I am not much of a quilt person, but that one is fantastic. Well done, you!

    And an anatomically correct Plurbit? Whatever a Plurbit is? That kid of yours SLAYS ME.

    LOVE the softies AND their anatomical correctness.

    Kim that quilt is amazeballs (I think this is a new slang cool word but in case I got it wrong I really REALLY LOVE that quilt!).
    And the fact that your son (not daughter) is sewing is leaving me wordless.
    Pics are great.

    1. Brilliant softies.

    2. I like anything "punctuated with black."

    I bet Felix will remember the guys he made for a very long time to come. So well done!

    I think your wedding quilt is stellar, too.
