Christmas 2016

 Merry Christmas everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas day with your families. Mine was lovely. Hot but nice just the same. Summer is definately here and 32 degrees in Tassie is a \hot day for sure.
 Christmas day I always take some family photos. each year my boys get bigger and bigger.

 Even though they eat me out of house and home, I wouldn't change a thing.
 I had fun incorporating my sewing projects with my Christmas decorations, I made this runner especially for my coffee table in the lounge. Its not quilted yet but i used it anyway.
 I also made a new runner for the kitchen dresser.
 I had a few scraps left over that I decided to use and make little baskets, they turned out so cute.
 I love this one with the recipe on the front.

I was very lucky and received some beautiful gifts. I have some  very talented friends that's for sure, I'll be back in a day or so to share what I got.

Thanks for stopping by.

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
