All New Pencil Rolls

Hello all I can't believe it's Thursday already. I have been getting down to some serious sewing in preparation for Christmas shopping. I have been getting requests and some ordered from all my organised customers. So here is my newest product it's a quilted pencil roll for all those a little too grown up for crayons. I think it would make a terrific give for Christmas. Hope you like it as much as I do. Oh and for all of you sharp eyed blog readers can you spot my brand new sew in label isn't it the cutest I will be sewing labels onto all my goodies from now on.
Happy Thursday.

Cute Owls

Today in between making some new art wallets I managed to find some time to make these ever so cute little owl hanging decorations. I designed them on several pieces of paper and had many try outs some did not reach completion I am so picky. I thought they would look great hanging on a christmas tree. I am so excited how they eventually turned out so that I think I may be making lots more.
Happy Monday

Good Morning !!!

Good morning all of you early birds isn't it great having the house to yourself all quiet and peaceful. I find that the first half hour of my day is a barometer for what's to follow. This morning for example I was unable to get my foot on the first stair when number three child was awake and wanting me to help him with something and that was at 6.15. Saturday and Friday were worse I was up and about at 5 both of those mornings and I had children up and bickering with each other by 5.35 can you imagine? Those special mornings when I do manage to sneek down stairs undetected and have half an hour to say good morning to my trusty old dog ( she is the last of our three faithful companions so I feel very close to her) open the back door and stare out into the garden breath the fresh morning air and be still. Oh those few precious moments give me a space to just be. With a house full to the brim with busy I cherish the quiet. Maybe tomorrow.
Happy Sunday

Cooling Down

The weather over the past few days has certainly been very autumnal with blustery winds and a cooling of temperatures. My monsters have been feeling the need to snuggle up at night. So I have been working on a new set of quilted hot water bottles. This one will be utilised a lot, we take them in the car when its cold as well as in bed.
Hope you are wrapped up today.
Happy Tuesday.

12 hour Cushion

Hello all how are you today? I thought I would share my latest finish. It just makes my heart sing. For those of you who are like myself completely and truly in love with all things fabric you know what I mean. This softy took 12 hours and thats a conservative estimate but its worth every minute every finger jab and there was thousands. I fussy cut and paper pieced the centre hexagons then appliqued them onto the centre square. Gave them a mix up border and then a white outer border. I layered up with wadding and hand quilted every inch. Gave the back an envelope opening and finished off with a striking red border hand stitched of course. Hope you love it as much as I do.
Happy Saturday.
