New Year = New Projects

If any of you follow me on Instagram or twitter you may have noticed I’ve decided to join the Scrappy Trip Along. Over the new year Brenda over at Pink Castle Fabrics and Megan of Lucy and Norman started a bit if an Instagram viral quilt along. It’s a pretty simple quilt but really fun to do, it must be if so many of us have decided to give it a go right? Why not give it ago! The ladies have set up a Flickr group here or you can find us all on Instagram using #scrappytripalong. There is also a tutorial which is very easy to follow here

Here’s my first 6 blocks, I know they are a work in progress but you get the idea, oh and sorry about the dodgy socks, my feet are really cold this evening.

You might remember in November I took part in the Craftaholics Anonymous Handmade Gift Exchange, well my gift from the lovely Gina arrived.

As you can see she really did spoil me (and my family) rotten. She made me not 1 but 4!! scarves, which somehow she managed to make in colours that all go really well with my petrol blue coat. A tote from Joanns, some perfume, coffee for hubby, popping candy and a quarter each for the monsters, even some Alaskan salmon treats for the dogs. It was like a second Christmas when this amazing package arrived!! I can’t thank Gina enough for her generosity.

Before I go I’ve finally remembered to show you a couple of the Christmas gifts I made. My dad got my mum a new tablet for Christmas so I made her a case for it, to match her make-up bag I made for her birthday, she does loves Snoopy.

And for my forever travelling sister I made this Atlas tote. I made it to fit hand luggage requirements so she can take it with her on any of her travels. I made sure I put Asia on the outside, it’s her favourite place.
