Sunday sewing and baking.

 I have made the most of my one day off today and I've done lots of things. I got up at 6.30am and went for a walk, it was the first early morning walk in a couple of weeks as its been so dark but now its much lighter and I feel safer walking so early. During the week I received some wonderful mail, first from my pen friend Stephany who lives in Belgium. Steph made me some beautiful birthday gifts. A wonderful notebook and a sweet little wooden heart which I have hanging up in my sewing room. A little roll of pretty fabrics.
 Look at the cute houses Steph made, they are like mini ornaments. Thankyou Steph, your gifts are beautiful.
 I also received another birthday package from Wendy. I was so excited to find a tiny doll inside. Isn't she just the cutest.

 Wendy also made this beautiful purse. Thankyou Wendy, I love my gifts.
 I received some pretty Lecien fabric that I ordered, its called Floral collection Princess rose. I'm not sure what I'm going to use it for yet but you can bet I'll start something soon. I just can't wait to cut into it and create something really girly.
 Today I am finishing off another quilt, its called Spools by Thimbleblossoms. I love Camille's patterns, they are so easy to follow.
 I hope to get it quilted this week.
 As my boys are on school holiday and we are working each day I had to do some baking for them  so they don't eat packets of chips for lunch. Tomorrow they have mini Quiche.
 For a snack I made brownies....
and yummy coconut biscuits.

Thats all for today, I think I need a nana nap.

Have a wonderful week and I hope you find some sewing time.

Hi Leanne, you posts are always filled with such prettiness, the presents, the fabrics (yum!) & the spools quilt, not forgetting the wonderful cooking too. Sounds like a nana nap would have been well deserved. Have a brilliant week! Tracee xx

Very nice rose-fabrics you have ordered from Lecien. I never know where to find them here in Belgium. And the spoolquilt is wonderful. What fabrics did you use for that quilt, was it a jelly roll from a certain series ?
