Christmas sewing

 Christmas is almost upon us and I have been a busy little bee in my sewing room making gifts, I can't share them yet but after Christmas you can see what I have been working on for the past few weeks.
I do have something to share with you though, my latest designs have been published in Handmade magazine. When my editor sent me some fabric and asked me to make a cushion I was thinking how I could make this fabric look amazing, It wasn't really to my taste but as I began sewing and adding a few touches of my own, I think they turned out OK.

 I made two cushions, a big one and a smaller one to sit in front.
 Its always a thrill to see my designs on those glossy pages. I do a little happy dance every time.
 I have been sewing with a few of my favourite scraps, each morning before work I would try to sew 2 of these little 6 inch blocks, I only have 2 left to make.

I have also been sewing with some very pretty Olives Flower Market fabric, I'm making something new for Homespun magazine  next year. 

And last but not least I have added a few goodies to my etsy shop, if you are looking for a gift or something for yourself, I would love for you to take a look.

Take care and thankyou for stopping by. xx

Everything looks lovely. When I look at the star pillow in the magazine article I see tall trees covered with snow which I love. Love snow... hate cold. This morning it is -27with the wind chill. I'll be staying under the covers today. Might be a good cross stitching day (wink) . Happy Hugs day to you. Janita

Dance away! Your designs are so magazine worthy. I must see how you quilted the smaller pillow as I really like the effect. Lots of sweet blocks heading towards terrific projects. Did you get any snow the other week? Imagine a white Christmas in Tassie! Have a wonderful Christmas, Leanne. Best wishes to you and the boys.
