Margaret's Mouse House
I have done very little sewing this week so I am showing off the work of others who have been much more productive than me. First of all Margaret's Mouse house . The little mouse family and their furniture are all made from felt and their cozy little house is made from a corduroy material and all fastens up into a tidy little house.
Even the bed has a tiny patchwork quilt and the baby's cot has a tiny quilt too. What a lot of work. Well done Margaret.
Janet has been busy too - a lovely quilt for her daughter who is off to college. It looks great - I am quite inspired to give this quilt a go as I have the same pattern sitting in my stash of patterns - ( is a collection of patterns also a stash or is that just fabric?) Hope the mitred corners worked out on the binding.
There hasn't been much stitching done as we were out and about at the weekend. Although the bank holiday weather wasn't great we went up to Allen Banks for a walk. The opening of the M&S store in Hexham has revolutionised picnicking in the west of Tynedale. You only need to roll out of bed, make a flask of coffee and put on your walking boots, stop off at M&S to buy an instant picnic, then head for the hills. Easy - no more organising- all diets catered for - no washing up!!
The weather is definitely a bit autumnal, and there were lots of fungus sprouting in the woods. I don't think this one would be good to eat though!!
