I was up at the crack of dawn this morning, it has been really hot here in Tassie the last few days and I couldn't sleep, laying in bed I thought if i get up now I could do some sewing. Then I thought ... if I get up now I could head to Kmart which is open 24 hours a day and do the rest of my Christmas shopping, so thats what I did. I wasn't the only one there either, While I was shopping I found a few things that I just loved so of course I bought those to, You know that feeling when you get home and think oh I wish I had bought that, well thats how I felt when I saw these pretties but I bought them straight away. I do love a good cup of tea and this little box was so cute, with tea bags and jams inside. What got me was the bird tea infuser.
I also found this really cute mason jar that doubles as measuring cups. I love these. Now I'm thinking I should have bought two.
I have been slowly working on these Nested Churn dash blocks, now all my Christmas sewing is done I can work on something for me. I have a couple of weeks holidays over Christmas so I plan to sew more of these. They finish at 24 inches so quite big. I'm thinking I'll make 9 and then decide if I should keep going.
They are so much fun to make. I am using all my Kansas troubles fabrics. This quilt will be perfect for winter. I love the warm colours of these fabrucs.
I tried my latest quilt finish on my bed and I think it will look really nice in my bedroom, now I am motivated to get the binding on. Another job for my holidays.
So are you all ready for Christmas. We just about are.
