A child at heart

I've come to the realisation that I am still a child at heart! I'm not the only one either, given the popularity of adult colouring-in books that I see everywhere. 

If you've read this post from last year, you will understand that I am still hooked on making cute, educational wall-hangings. Here is the latest - My Kitchen: 

It's a wall-hanging with removable parts.  
Who could resist a canister in blue and white check? 

Grab the mixing bowls off the shelf:

  Weigh out the ingredients on the scales:

Let the vintage Mixmaster do all the mixing:

Pop the apple pie in the oven:

Put your feet up and make a coffee:

The colour-scheme was based on the pretty fabric I used for the curtains and for the toaster:

It even comes with a child-size apron to match:

The pattern is in Patchwork & Stitching magazine, Vol 16 No 10.

I will make the pattern available in my Craftsy store in a couple of months so don't despair if you don't have access to the magazine.

I've had another week of running around in circles with lots of interruptions and I feel as if my head is still spinning! Maybe I should stop and make that circle quilt I've dreamed about!

Happy stitching!

How cute is that, Val! Yes, it sounds like you should stop and smell the roses.

Such a beautiful design. You are so clever.

I love your kitchen, Val. It is gorgeous.

Oh, that is so cute! I love the three dimensional quality of it.

Oh Val, I love all your cupboards! I've kept all the patterns I've found in mags and intend to make one or more in the future. I did the My Pantry one for my niece's little girls and they loved it, but after several house moves and their mother's prcoession of boyfriends, I doubt if the Pantry survived...the girls are in their early teens now and social media is the most important thing in their lives of course...I wish I'd kept that wall hanging, a lot of work went into it, as you would appreciate! I should have kept it here and let them play with it when they visited. Oh well, not having kids of my own, I don't suppose I can relate to them moving on in their lives to other things and forgetting home made presents from years gone by!
