This post is all about Christmas. My Christmas placemats is my newest design to be published in this months Patchwork & Stitching magazine.
I loved making these, when you are on a deadline its hard to focus on anything else except the project you are working on, I stitched like crazy to get these done. While dinner was cooking, while I was watching tv and even at 4am when I couldn't sleep, I would get up and sneak into the loungeroom to get some stitching done.
Of course they look amazing in the photos taken by the magazine, they always present my designs so beautifully.
This weekend I have started making a few christmas gifts that need to be posted overseas so I need to get them extra early. I like to be organised and it makes me much more relaxed when I'm track.
My friend Cathy & I love Halloween, each year we give each other a small halloween gift, I made Cathy a basket, I thought it turned out super cute.
This morning I took a little stroll around my garden to see what has flowered recently. I have so many pretty flowers.
This little garden under the tree looks so pretty with lots of cottage type flowers growing.When they are finished I have glady's that will grow there in the summer.
I do love to potter outside, my vegies have started to grow now the weather has warmed up.
I hope you have had a lovely weekend and you found some sewing time, thankyou for stopping by.
