November Finishes

This is Molly Jayne who I finished today as a special Xmas gift for Miss B - She is very sweet in her petticoat and fairy dress. I think she needs some more clothes if I have time. And below isvmy first Quilt (although only small) Gail Pans Christmas Wish Quilt all finished. I am quite pleased with the result. bAs usual the photo doesnt do the sashing justice but it is a Nancy Halverson fabric with hooy leaves and berries which ties together the red and green very nicely. I can now decorate the house.

Decorating Begins

Like all of you crafters I am sure decorating for Christmas is a MAMMOTH task - so I have started today with my Blog (much easier than a house) SO let the festivities begin!!

Homespun Excitement

I was sitting catching up on some reading today when there was a loud banging at the door -it was a parcel (or at least the postman with a parcel). I thought is it my SS present so quick. No - I have won a prize from Homespun. A prize of Sherri Berry goodness. I have never had such a stash of fabric( I am quite new to crafting and buy as I go what I need)If you have seen any pretty projects using this unusual xmas range le tme know because I now have a new mission - to use fabric from my stash

The Angel has landed

This week has seen a little parcel arrive each day. First from the lovely Jantine my stitching angel who sent me a sewing machine mat, a personalised drawstring bag , a piece of fabric and an oven mitt with little blue dutch motives on it and a little pincushion which arrived here today(no photo yet). Thankyou so much. Jantine has been a wonderful angel who has given me several sneak peeks and secret messages. I also received The Paris Collection pattern from Cinderberry stitches which I won in a giveaway. What a treat. I leave you with A picture of happy Miss B in her Butterfly Kisses dress - I wish she was smiling now but she is hot and tired and screaming Must go .
