The Naked Chef,lol

This is a pattern that i have wanted to make for quite a few years.

So finally got the courage to tackle him,i think the painting of his face had frightened me off starting him.

Here we have Pierre the Naked Chef,lol, Jamie Oliver eat your heart out,lol.

Here he is with his icing on,lol.

And i had fun making these little clothes ,the chef's jacket was a bit of a challenge but got there in the end,it was fun seeing him come to life once i started dressing him.

 I love this guy and had so much fun making him up he did take me out of my comfort zone which was good for me,as each time you step out of your comfort zone you are learning.

This lovely pattern was designed by Stella Whittingham and called Pierre the ginger bread Chef and was in Country Threads Vol 14 No 7.
Lol just discovered Stella doenst live far from me ,lol,what a small world we live in.

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and are keeping warm its a freezing weekend down my way,good sewing and stitching weather.
Cheers Shez xx

Craft & Progress

 On Monday i had another wonderful day at craft with these lovely ladies ,top left hand picture is a lovely quilt that Brenda had just quilted on her longarm and a lot of the girls were knitting socks.

I finally started on my Shelley Kelly pouch ,cant find a link to this pattern,sorry.

I finished a cute Birdhouse stitchery to make a draw string bag to add to the baby gifts.

I have wanted to start this gingerbread man pattern for a few years now and finally got around to painting his face yesterday,i was scared of the painting in case i stuffed it up.
The pattern is out of  an old Country Threads magazine Vol 14 No 7

It certainly is soup weather down our way at the minute,and i made this carrot and Lentil coconut soup,i will be making this one again as it was very yummy,recipe below.

Hope your day is a good one.

 And a bell inside so it rattles when been played with.

I am having so much fun putting together a lovely parcel for Alana.

Green Dragon's Sit & Sew

I had another fun day with the girls at the Green Dragon sit & sew,the best thing to do was to be stitching with friends as it was a very windy and cold miserable day.

Michelle was busy sewing up her lovely warm beanies.

Ione and Kerry were busy working out their pieces for a pieced quilt.

There might've been a bit of distraction from Polly the very cute dog.

Mary decided to give Polly a tickle and a cuddle as well.

 Julie was very pleased with her pieced work.

And Cate was very pleased with her flimsy.

After our sit & sew was finished Brenda and i went to Gail's Emporium and ran into our buddies Jo and Michelle,it made my day to run into these two gorgeous girls,so as you can imagine lots of chatting was going on.
It was such a lovely fun day ,we all enjoyed the laughter and sharing of idea,s cant wait till the next meeting.

Hope your day is a good one.
