Those who've been following me for a while will probably remember my amigurumi animal 'phase' a few years back. I just made a cute amigurumi elephant for a friend's baby and it's been so lovely to get back into it. My kids demanded some animals too so it looks like I won't be putting those hooks away anytime soon! The pattern for this cute elephant is by Amy from Little Muggles

Last but not least, my dear friend Jemima (Tied With A Ribbon)'s first book 'Weekend Quilting' has come out, and it's just landed on my doorstep. It's fabulous, and I can't wait to sew something from it. Order yours today and stay tuned for the upcoming blog tour!
