It's a Mummy!

While technically fabric, we have a mummy for a dress up party!

I might add for those considering a dress up, this is potentially the easiest costume you could ever consider. Just make sure your first aid cert is up to date as there are a few tricky corners. Also make sure there are shorts a a t-shirt underneath.

Ode to Red

While terribly disappointed in the photo, this quilt just turned out lovely. A smattering of all my favourite reds with variegated red thread stippling. It was a gift to someone that shares the red love. She has just finished her uni degree and over the years I have got to know her will be great in her chosen profession. I wish her all the best and hope she likes this gift as much as I enjoyed making it for her.

More Christmas Presents!

I'm on a roll and loving getting ready for Christmas.

Found this fantastic pattern for fabric shopping bags so have been sewing up a storm. The they fold up into themselves also so easy to chuck in the handbag or nappy bag.

There is a bottle of wine and 2 soft drinks bottles in that one standing up and heaps more room. There is also shown one all folder up and ready to go. Super easy!!

Felt Food.

How cool is felt food!

Have a stack of little girls to give Christmas pressies to this year, so felt food it is.

So far we have about a loaf of sliced bread, block of sliced cheese, cucumber, spinach leaves and tomato. To come is: Ham (still working that one out, think I might needle felt some white streaks into it), strawberries and cupcakes. Then a little lunch bag for them to go into. I have been on a role so am making enough that when my little one is older he will have them to play with too.

Hasn't that week gone fast.

I reached my arm in and look what came out. This fabric just makes me giggle. I have no idea what I will do with it - BOTTOMS!!!

Stash Sunday - Week 1

Stash Sunday was started by those talented EB quilters to ensure blog posts and to show off the lovely fabric hidden in draws.

In the theme of Christmas I thought I would do my first Stash Sunday post with 2 of my favourites that I have been chopping up today. I know the rules are just one but these are so similar they count as one......don't they?

Another another sneaky peak.

First homemade Christmas present finished and here is the proof.

Yes, you don't know what it is, that is because this is the fabric of it, hiding the present within. How divine is this print!!! You should see the finished thing.

I love making gifts for people.

Sneak peaks.....

The latest quilt in the making.....

I just love it.

Fabrics from afar.

After just coming back from the best holiday in Malaysia, I have to share a small purchase.

I am not a huge fan of batiks or Asian prints or even hibiscus flowers. However I fell in love with these. No idea what I will do with them but great stash builders.
