Autumns 1st Birthday Teddy

This pattern comes from
 Mary Jane's Tea Room.
You can purchase a single pattern or in a bundle with a boy bear included.
Knitted in the round,which was my first ever,with easy to follow instructions.
I knitted the bear as per the pattern 
using size 8ply(DK) and 3mm needles.
I knitted the skirt twice,the first the knit 
 seemed too tight using the 3mm needles, 
 so I opted for 3.50 needles,decreasing
  the amount of cast on stitches by 10.
I also added a picot edge for the hem,for added cuteness.
The cardigan was also from 
Mary Jane's Tea Room.
I used the size 3.50 knit pro needles again.
These needles were beautiful to work with,
the wool seemed to just glide over and off them.

Kaelan's Quilt

Kaelan's 9th Birthday gift.
Made Using Robert Kaufman Fabric called
North American Wildlife Panel
"Ocean Orca,Sea Turtle"
With Spiral Log cabin paper pieced pattern
from Craftsy.

I have never done a paper piece pattern before.
And would never have been able to have
 sewn a block with these type of angles.
Therefore I would encourage anyone
to give the paper piecing pattern's a go.
Watch quite a few youtube videos,which were very helpful.
So am quite pleased with the outcome.
