...but I couldn't help myself. This was just waiting to be made and it kept calling and calling "Make Me, Make Me" so I did. It was much quicker and easier than the bunny. The Bunnies & Yarn pattern was so well written and easy to follow. What do you think?

When I first took up crocheting one of my friends asked if someone could make her a bunny she had seen on facebook it was a free pattern and although it was way more complicated than the other things I had made I said I would give it a go. It tested me and it was much harder than anything else I had crocheted. I learnt a lot by making it. I'm actually glad I didn't notice the warning about not attempting this if you were a beginner that was at the beginning of the webpage because I might not have attempted it. I gave it a go and I am very happy with the results. I hope my friend will be too!
May got off to a great start I finished off this top and took it to the quilters
Then I got this one bound
I even got this top finished and took it to the quilters too!
Then I got distracted by other things so I still have these two quilts to bind but maybe they can be my June goal.
I'm heading over to Elm Street Quilts to see what others achieved in May and what they have planned for June.
I didn't realise how long it had been since I last posted. Here are some of the things I have been working on since the last post. I've done some more blocks for the Free Motion Quilting Project
I think I need a bit more practice with this one I was very wobbly, but I am liking the darker thread on the fabric.
I put this quilt top together.
I made some repairs to a friends teddy and discovered teddy likes playing ninja turtles so I made him a ninja turtle mask while I was at it!
I really need to practice those curvy lines!
I started making some postcards for an upcoming postcard swap being hosted by Quilty Desires
I will keep you posted about the sign ups incase anyone would like to join in.

I just looked at the last time I posted and I realised it has been a while so here is a bit of a catch up of what I have been doing
I have finished this hat and almost finished 2 more of these
I have also started making some mittens to go with them.
I made some petit four baskets
Then I machine sewed a binding on one of the quilts I needed to bind
(I will post a picture when I have finished the hand sewing)
Then while I had the right colour thread on the machine I finished off this quilt top. It is at the quilters now waiting to be quilted.
Today I had some fun doing some scrap busting on this table runner
and having a go at the first block of the Free Motion Quilting Project by Leah Day.
(I'm hoping that if I do a block everyday my stitches will become a bit more even than they are now!)
I just signed up for Friday Night Sew In too are you going to join us?

I'm glad I had some sewing time with my Friday Night friends out there! I managed to complete my main goal for OMG last night. Monday this top will be off to the quilters :0)
I might just get my other projects done this month too...if I don't get distracted by other things again!
Master Eight had offered to make his friend a pencil case and when he found out his young friend liked dinosaurs Master Eight wanted to make a dinosaur pencil case. Of course I could not find a pattern for one so we had to do some creative thinking. Master Eight picked out the colours and I found a toy pattern by Melly & Me that would be easy enough to modify to make a pencil case. At this stage Master Eight decided to delegate the sewing to me so I spent the day putting him together. I decided to give him a layer of wadding to give it a bit more sturdiness and lined him too.
I hope Master Eight's little friend likes him!

My goal for this month is to take the thin black border off this add some other borders and get it to the quilters.
If I get that done I will bind these two quilts which are now quilted
Then I will work on this top which I still need to finish
