Very hungry caterpiller

Flowers are Love's
truest language.
-Park Benjamin.

I have to say that this weekend went fast!
I managed to get alot of crafting done
and had the best time burning wood....
that is another hobby of mine.
Pixie just shakes his head when he walks
by the wheelbarrow...he is sure he filled the wheelbarrow up!!?

It was a lovely cold Saturday and what else can a girl do but sew, drink tea and burn wood. I went net surfing and came
across a great little pattern for a favourite character...

He is from the book called Very hungry caterpiller.
If you want to have a go at making him, click here.
I made the caterpiller a bit different to the pattern because
the kids will be handling him, so I put legs on both sides of the caterpiller and the eyes aren't on one side of the face.
Thanks Bev, see how quickly I got to use the green
thread!! Bev kindly dropped off some green thread and I
have already been able to use some of it.
I have also found a cute little pattern for a softie
cat...very quick and easy. Great for using up scraps.

Of course, I'm not getting on with the camera. The top colour is a light blue, the next colour down is a lovely floral. Click here for the pattern. This is the back view of stripey patchwork cat.

I did enjoy making him. I had some spare time while Pixie and
Cory went gokarting. Brandon was busy with his XBox game
and I had fun with the sewing machine. Oh I did finish off
my cardigan too!

It has knitted up really well and so soft. I used one of my
buttons from my button stash..something Heather will be
pleased about. And I can't wait to wear it.

You know, I can't really bag Heather too much, she gave me
this lovely wool. I'm not sure what to make with this, but
if anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear
your thoughts and ideas.
If all else fails I can always knit something for Guardian Angel
and tuck it away for when they collect all knitted or
sewn items.
I'm looking forward to another terrific week at work and see
what my week holds for me.
Hope your week will be a great week full of sewing or doing whatever makes you happy.
Kind regards, Anita.
