Asher's pirate vest and boy oh boy quilt

where has this week gone?
im not really sure to be honest, but i know i haven't done a lot of craft-ing...

i have nearly finished hubby's nephew's pirate vest - can't you tell..... :)

not a great piccie, but it is a very simple vest with the shoelace type cord to go in the eyelets in each side, like a lace up effect

i am CRAP at dressmaking, so it is a very rudimentary vest, but should get the job done for dress ups!

have also been working on the boy oh boy quilt for the homespun design comp - im getting the embroidery done slowly.  started thinking about how to quilt it too - think i will do some in the ditch and the some hand quilting of bigger perle cotton stitches....not sure yet

hope you are all finding time for some craftiness of your own

pugs and kisses

I am sure the vest will be great for the dress ups. Kids are always so happy with anything we put together.
can't wait to see your quilt finished.
