We've had some good winter weather lately - here in Northland the weekend was mostly fine and mild but also a little dismal and 'grey' so I figured it was perfect for staying inside to get a few wee projects done. This felt very satisfying as they weren't big jobs and it seems that I've managed to achieve lots!
First up I made this 'whole cloth' quilt.... just some pretty fabric my dil found. She thought it would be nice with some minky on the back so of course I offered to put it together for her :-)
I included a layer of bamboo batting to give it a little body without adding too much bulk and quilted it with a very simple, large meander.

Another straight forward project was this pair of Happy Pants for a family member with a birthday.
|Happy Pants as they are known in our family but aka as Pyjama pants.|
Yaay we found some adult looking wincyette - sort of!
In my last post, I didn't share about all the crocheting I did in the car when we were away on our road trip. I had also made these little granny squares. Mum and I had a discussion about whether they were Granny Squares or Peggy Squares... With the help of google I discovered that Granny Squares are crocheted and Peggy Squares are knitted - but also that the naming of them as Peggy Squares is a New Zealand thing with an interesting story behind it.
(If you are at all curious, here are some if the links I found; loosingsleepcountingsheep and miydiy.)
Anyway back to my squares... I've sewn them together —
— and made them into this hottie cover —

winter lover :-)
The squares are on the back as well.
I've spent some time cutting out my next lot of rainbow scrap blocks and some stars I'm making and some hexies and so I think it's time for me to get sewing! Whew never a dull moment around here and what better way to spend my winter days!
Hope the season is treating you all well, thank you for visiting,
