Gift Idea, Jingle Bells & More Quilts.....


It's another beautiful day here and I seem to have found my Mojo somewhere late yesterday.  I did clean out my wardrobe so it may have been hiding in there amongst all of the cothes which no longer fit me.


Here are this year's jingle bell additions - Each year they seem to come out in prettier colours than the last and the shabby pink and lime are just gorgeus together.


I have finally sewn the binding down on Amy's Sorbet quilt and it is now wrapped and ready for Christmas Morning.


Today has been very productive so far, this morning I whipped up this little cot quilt for my baby niece.  I just have to hand applique the butterflies and quilt it before Christmas Eve when I will be seeing her.  No pressure - LOL


Also this morning I used those Clips, Artist Canvas and Shoelaces to make this Wall Organiser for my new office area.  It is very quick to make and would make a fantastic gift.  What you can display on it is endless.  Next year I am going to make a little advent calendar similar to this one and hang 25 tiny little wrapped gifts from the clips for the grandbabies.


I had a lot of fun making it.  I took some photo's along the way so I will put together a little tutorial for you in the next few days. 

Next week I have some photo's of some of my designs that others have made to share with you.  As a designer seeing what others do with my patterns is one of the best feelings and to hear how they enjoyed making it is even better. 

Try not to get too stressed in the coming week and don't forget to take some time out for "you".
