All sorts of things.

 Here it is in all its glory, my Sunshine frolics quilt by the very talented Natalie Bird. I have loved every minute of making this quilt.
 The stitcheries were so much  fun to do. You know how much I love doing stitchery.

 I have started a new quilt by Natalie as well, its called Sweet sentiments. There are 12 stitcheries in total and I have set them out a bit different than the original quilt. I thought I'd make 12 pieced blocks with the stitchery in the middle. Its looking quite pretty so far.

 I have lots to share with you on my sewing room progress. Its so exciting now as the window and door are in. So it looks like a room now.
 This will be my view of the back garden, look at that frost. I was freezing standing there taking photos. Just imagine a hot sunny day with all my flowers in bloom and me sitting there in my new room doing my sewing, looking out the door. I just can't wait.

 The room is all wrapped up now ready for the weather boards. The electrician is coming  this week to do the lights and power points.

 This week I also received this beautiful santa sack from sisbabe for our santa sack swap.
 Each month from July til December we each send 12 gifts to put in our sack until christmas. Its going to be great fun.
This is the sack I made for Sisbabe.

I have quite a bit of sewing planned for today. The weather is cold and dreary so its a good excuse to stay inside with my sewing machine for company.
Have a wonderful day and I hope you find some sewing time.
