I don't know where she finds the time but Corrie from Retro Mummy is organising Quilts for Queensland - making quilts for the victims of the floods in Queensland and cyclone Yasi. So for our craft night a couple of weeks ago, we decided we would like to join in and we all made some quilt blocks to post off.
I would have loved to have made a full quilt to help out but I knew if I did that it would never get to anyone because I'd still be working on it in three years time. Plus my binding is still really dodgy, so whoever received the quilt would be feeling a bit dudded when they saw all the other beautiful ones on Corrie's blog. But hopefully our little quilt blocks will help out a bit.
This weekend I also finally finished Matilda's panda bear (and can cross one thing off my project list... yay!).
Originally I started this panda planning to give it to Matilda on her second birthday (last July) but then I did something wrong on one of the legs and so it sat in a bag, unfinished until now. Better late then never though right?
I just hope he can withstand the love... he's been doing a lot of dancing so far.
I made him from this tutorial, which I can definitely recommend, he was pretty easy as long as you have a really big needle to sew the arms and legs on with.
