A freezing day

Its been such a cold week here in Tasmania, I think its going to be a cold winter. After all the rain we had during the week it was so nice to see the sun today. After all the cloud lifted we could see snow on the mountain, it was so pretty. I just had to share a picture. This is the view from our back garden, how lucky are we.

Yesterday I enjoyed making my first jar cover so much that today I made another one, this time its all fabric without the stitchery. Its smaller than my first one but just as sweet, I added a few buttons just to make it more interesting.



This is a back view just to show you how they do up around the jar.













I have started stitching the pattern for the other design of Lisa's jar cover so I hope to get that done over the weekend, I made mine a little longer by adding a bit more of the design.


I hope you find some sewing time this weekend.

Love the jar covers - I'm thinking that without too many modifications the design would make lovely coffee plunger cosies as well.

Hope you are enjoying holidays with your children :)
