Fabric, Yarn & Hand stitching

Hello! I am still here. It has been a while since my last post. Life has been more busy with all 3 children attending primary school. I'm trying to keep up with everything. The kids are on school holidays and it is nice not having to race out the door in the morning for school drop off. I hope your children are enjoying the holidays too. We just got back from my sisters. It was nice to visit with my parents and some siblings. The cousins had fun watching Big Hero 6, playing in the backyard and sharing a meal together 

I would like to share photos of recent creations I've made

{ Patchwork mousepad }

I thought it was appropriate to hand stitch 'I love you' in both Korean and English, as the patchwork mousepad is for our bedroom. I used Pam Kitty fabric with a little Scrumptious fabric. This is inspired by nanaCompany 'Ticker Tape patchwork'

I made a couple of { crochet jar cosies }
