Hmm.... Patchwork in Scouting!

Is there something wrong with this picture??????

Or does everyone use their quilting rulers to find the dead center of their Scout Shirt sleeves so they can position their badges ready for sewing?????

Poor hubby thinks that now I am a Joey Scout Leader that I may actually want to camp and do lots of out doorsy type off stuff! 

Boy is he wrong!!!!

I am already planning my camp blanket with some Riley Blake Camp A Lot charm squares and a bag to hold all  attendance book etc featuring the gorgeous Australian Animal Paper Piecing patterns that Kristy from Quiet Play has designed.  Oh and I can't  forget my mess kit with matching tea towel, cutlery bag and coffee snuggly that I am planning on making as soon as I have finished sewing the badges on my shirt!

ALYOF - February Roundup

I am really disappointed with my results from February! Mind you I shouldn't be considering I spent most of the month in bed with a migraine and then a lovely head cold that the kidlets and hubby decided to share with me.

Mind you I did get a couple of projects finished - so I shouldn't be too hard on myself.

I managed to complete the mushroom rattle to go with some other bits and pieces to send to a new niece on Hubby's side. I love making these cute mushrooms - they are a Dolls and Daydream pattern and take next to no time to whip up.  I did change red fabrics - as I thought this check was a lot nicer then the other piece that I had originally picked out.

I also managed to make Miss Moo's headband for school. This was a project that I had been wanting to do for years and was only motivated by her last short bob hair cut which keep falling into her eyes and bugging me to pieces. 
# Please excuse the really bad photos - they were taken before 7am this morning and before anybody was really truly awake #

I also finally finished the bag I made for my swap partner in the Valentines Day Swap. I was very late in sending mine (I apologise Lianne) as I wasn't well enough to sit at the machine to finish it. 

So I suppose 3 out of 6 tasks weren't too bad considering my health in February. Just means that I won't have too think to hard on what to set as my tasks for March - LOL.

Now I would have linked up the A Lovely Year of Finishes Linky - but it closed on the last day of the month and I totally forgot to write this post. Whoops - still not quite back to my usual self.
