2017 Completed.

Here it is the end of 2017 and what a year!

Have been very busy and rarely if ever get to read blogs I follow, let alone update here.

Some of my creations for November and December.

 Cool and summery top for my sister, made using her left-over fabric which she was throwing out.  Simplicity Easy to Sew Pattern 1615.
 Christmas themed shorts for Miss M.
 A Christmas dress for Miss E.
 Above and below knitted face cloths.
Two pair of PJ shorts for me.  The cat print is from Spotlight in the furnishing section.
Using more furnishing fabric I made this summer dress.  Simplicity 8231, Sew House Seven Pattern.
I have been learning to patch and quilt, that will be the start of another blog, hmmm, am I over-extending myself.



  1. well done!
    i can't sew but am a knitter, except in this awful muggy weather we're getting atm.
    love the cat print!
    another blog? wouldn't it just be easier to just keep the one going? you have named this one 'sew be knit' & quilting & patchwork is still sewing :)) just sayin' ...
    hope you had a good xmas & enjoyable new year
    thanx for sharing

  2. Deb, you have achieved a lot this year despite the hardships you have faced. I love what you sew. See you in the New Year ;-)

  3. You are so creative Deb. I love everything, especially the blue summer dress.
    I wish you a wonderful New Year!


  4. Beautiful work!! Where did you got the pattern for the child dress for miss E.? It's adorable! Everything you made looks so pretty. I am a beginner in sewing but perhaps I can try making a child's dress. Thanks for sharing and happy new year!!

  5. Haven't you been busy! I love all the clothes. I think I need to start sewing clothes again!

  6. I love your Summer dress! I have been learning to sew but I haven't made a dress yet though I do have a pattern. I hope it will turn out as nicely as yours has. Meg:)
