Stitch 'n' Bits

Isn't that just the cutest name for a blog - Stitch 'n' Bits - I wish I'd thought of it! My sister Amelia has FINALLY started a blog... she probably just got sick of my nagging! Amelia is a really talented quilter and crafter. While I've stuck mainly to quilts she's branched out to all sorts of things such as bags and aprons and toys, which she's generously given away. She's also kindly tested and proof read a number of my patterns and written a tonne of encouraging comments on my blog. Love you Meelie!

Here's just a couple of things she's made for my family:

Now if this cute little apron doesn't get me in the mood for some cooking and cleaning, nothing will :)

This is by far the cutest back pack I've ever seen! And just look at those perfectly even stitches.

Great fabric for a dragon don't you think?

Amelia and I live in different states so its really exciting to be able to SEE her work now, not just hear a description over the phone. She's got a bit of catching up to do ... and I'm looking forward to seeing all of the projects she's been working on over the last year or so. You can catch her over at Stitch 'n' Bits too.
