Thank you Sue for the gorgeous little zip beach hut. Next time I will use thicker material for the door so one does not see the stripes through. Unfortunately my needle broke when sewing around the zip (no I didn't hit any metal) and it wasn't until the
My first project with 'Knit for Knysna'. Decided to make a rug mug for the owner of the knitting shop who has been so kind in discounting her wool for the project. I will give it to her tomorrow when I take in some knitted goods. Just need to trim off s
Just want to show everyone what Vicki (basketkase) has done for me. My daughter designed the original which has been used for a poster for much needed items for the victims of the fires we have had recently, and Vicki has digitized it for me. Thank you so
I do not want to see another zip bag for a while. A pekingese rescue asked me to make 20 as they had seen the ones I make for Pug Rescue. I have made 10 with a pekingese face on (thank you Vicki for making this possible) and 10 with a pekingese saying on.

Well my machine is working beautifully after it's altercation with a cotton reel. This is a design I have not tried before but was so pleased to find something to do with a pekingese. I hope they like it at Peke Haven as much as I do.
Having taken goodies to Pug Rescue when I was in Johannesburg, I was asked if I could make some bags for Pekingese Haven, also in Johannesburg. Finding small pekingese designs is an impossible task.<br /><br /> Some years Vicki (basketkase) digitized m
Finished at last. My bags and eye glass cases for Pug Rescue in Johannesburg. I usually have to send the things I make but I am going to Johannesburg on Wednesday so I will be able to deliver them myself. Thank you Kim for the eye glass case. They are
This morning I asked for help looking for a 5x7 mug rug.<br /><br /> Not being the most patient person I decided to concoct one myself. I have a file with lots of frames. Chose the largest that would fit my hoop, added a bubble stipple and back, and vo
First bag for the charity that is close to my heart. Pug Rescue South Africa. Just been given the heads up to make more. So happy I can help in this way, which gives me pleasure and hopefully raises a bit of cash for PRSA.
Just finished the two coasters. I tried ordinary cotton as I did not want the sheen. It worked fine until I got into the edging and my machine was not a happy chappy. I think I would like to try again but I would not like to try again on anything with den
