Two small projects. One Big Obsession.

With the weather being so cold, I have been spending a lot of time inside. The cosy couch, with a quilt and the heater going is just too inviting. It's been great! I have been doing a lot of small projects sewn by hand which is so relaxing!



An example of the paper piecing I mentioned in a previous post. I have really been enjoying it. I'm still not sure if I want to try and do a hexagon quilt (afraid it will take me 100 years)! I have appliqued 2 of the smaller ones onto linen to turn into a project for the shop (more on this later). I've also enjoyed fussy cutting some fabrics for the hexagon flowers!


I love Hello Kitty. I'm not sure when my love for her started, and at the age of 23 I sometimes wonder why I find her so cute... but why deny myself? So I decided to do some stitching on white linen of a simple Hello Kitty that I plan to stretch over a frame, and put in my bedroom. I think it's adorable.
I am a little worried though. This is my phone cover.


And these are my keys...

I wonder when I will grow out of this obsession and move onto the next? And with my up and coming trip to Thailand, where I am assured there's truckloads of Hello Kitty stuff... Will I grow out of it?

Hi Amitie Girl,
Can't remember where I found you - possibly on someone else's craft blog? Anyway, here I am, and enjoying your blog. I chuckled over your Hello Kitty stuff - I love it too. The first time I ever heard of it must have been about 20 years ago, when my hubby brought home a rubber/eraser he saw in a shop. It was a Hello Kitty one, so me being a cat lover...I've since bought a few other things, but I never thought of doing a stitchery - that is really cute! Did you make that up yourself, or find it somewhere? I'd love to do one myself, but won't pinch it from your blog until I have your permission.
Cheers
Gina (also a Melbourne Girl)

Hi Gina,
The stitchery isn't complete. Still have to finish her head but she was fun to make and so quick and easy!
Feel free to do one! I just found a picture of Hello Kitty I liked and did a rough sketch of it onto some white linen and used a simple back stitch!
Planning on stretching it over a wooden frame and putting it in my room!
Thanks for following my blog!
