another one .....

We had tease of Spring with some warm
 weather earlier this week - hooray.  However, it's cold again and with fresh snow.   
 It's been a long winter this year. 

I've been doing a bit of spring cleaning because I just know that once it warms up
 I'll want to be outdoors!!

Here's another scissors holder - this one can hold 3 different sizes .... 
if I lose one I'll lose them all.

 Aa new cosmetic bag with a boxy bottom - easy to make and roomy.  
The pattern is from So Sew Easy.  


This is a sampler baby blanket/cover .... it would be ideal as a carriage or sled cover for baby.  It used up a lot of my odds and ends of yarns and enjoyed learning a few new stitches - my favourite was the star stitch.  I got the idea from here.

These are fabulous, lovely bright and cheery. We also have also had some sunshine this week in between the showers.

This is such a brilliant idea Kate - I confess that I have so many pairs of scissors that even if I lost 3 of them, I would plenty more to use until I found the missing 3...
have a lovely weekend Kate - I hope the suns shines for you x

2 wonderful new pieces here =)
this cosmetic bag is really perfect
it's a long time now since I've been sewing a zip =D
Very great job you've done, thank you for the links, so sew easy is such a great site !
we thought it was almost Spring beginning of the week, but it's so raining now and it is so cold that I'm sure Spring will wait a bit before arriving ere !
but no more tempests is already great !!!
have a very good weekend =)
big big hugs

Ah Kate your projects are splendid -- and about that spring cleaning -- oh my goodness I haven't even thought about it. Thanks for sharing the link on the cosmetic bag -- sweet! Take care, Karen

We are having the warm weather right now, but it ends tomorrow...right back into below freezing weather. This has been the hardest and longest winter I ever remember!

At least you have your pretty projects to keep you busy inside, Kate--lovely job on all :)
