Fabric giveaway

This is cotton, and measures 46" x 65".


I bought this material a few years ago, when my daughter was a sweet little girl who loved fairies, ballerinas and anything pink. Not sure exactly what I intended making out of it for her, but seeing as she is now into skulls, Avril Lavigne, and detests pink - I don't think anything in this material would be appreciated!!
If anyone can make use of this for their own little ballerina, I'd be happy to pop it in the post. The first person to respond in the comments can have it :0)

Egg cosy

An egg cosy as requested by his mini lordship - who incidentally doesn't even eat dippy eggs. He's prepared now though if he does ever want one.

Look what I been making.....

This is my first post on here, so be gentle......

On holiday last year, I saw lovely bunting for sale in some of the craft shops in Cornwall. I wasn't going to pay their silly prices so I decided to make them myself and I finished them last night. I am so chuffed with myself, as it is the first time I have used my sewing machine on anything other than my scrapboking layouts. I have made them for DD2 room and bow I need to source some material for my other daughter.

Well we love wool , but this takes it to the extreme !

Hey I've just got to share this with you, do go and
Have a look at these pics :-)

lol brill isn't it , gave us a good laugh anyway, now have I got enough wool . . . . . . . .

Saying Hello

Thank you to Dawniy for inviting me to join this blog.
I am Hannah, I blog at
Home Baked Education. I'm a single parent to Cameron who is 9, we have been home educating for two and a bit years.
I try to incorporate creativity into my life as much as possible through a variety of methods. I am self taught at everything so the quality of items varies!
I taught myself the basics of knitting from a children's library book in October 2007 and am enjoying tentatively trying out new things. I tend to prefer making my own patterns rather than trying to follow complicated (to me) instructions!
I was gifted a great sewing machine from another home educator via freecycle last year and am slowly trying to get to grips with using it.
I'm always looking for inspiration but tend to procrastinate about getting started - I love the idea about doing something crafty every day in May.
I'm looking forward to joining in and being part of a community of lovely creative women :o)

Everyday in May...

I this somewhere on an arty blog (I can't remember where!) the idea is to spend some time daily being creative. I have'nt done anything for ages due to time really but I really miss making things so I'm up for it! I'm going to be creative everyday in May - even if its only one or two stitches :0)
