Look what I did.

I bought and put up a Christmas tree. The lights needs to be fixed and the box of decorations found, but it’s up. A real plastic tree… wonders never cease.

xmas2I can’t decide what quilt to hang on the wall behind it. I put up Santa’s House 2 but I might swap it out for another one. The furniture needs to be moved around so I can’t decide yet.

I popped into Peppermint Stitches this weekend because I needed some fabric for the free Santa sack pattern I’m doing for Therm-O-Web. Except I totally forgot the Christmas fabric and walked out with a sack full of Tilda fabrics instead. Ooops! The free pattern will be available in about two weeks time. Stay tuned!

Otherwise not much is happening on the sewing front. It’s Kel’s last week of high school, hubby has taken a week off work to tile our laundry floor, and I have a chore list as long as my arm to get through. I’ve got to make a date with those Tilda fabrics though :oD


It’s the last day to pick up a copy of this week’s Five Dollar Friday patterns. Santa’s House 2, Reindeer Games, and Flamingo Dance are on special this weekend for $5 for the PDF pattern and $10 (including postage) for the printed patterns. xx

 

 

It’s not quite summer.. yet..

Re-binding Spud’s favourite Christmas quilt.

CANDY CHRISTMAS

It’s not quite Summer yet but it sure feels like it. We’ve had storms roll through two nights running. We drove into a hail storm this afternoon on the freeway, one minute it was sunny the next we were being pelted by medium sized hail.

Our friendly garden water dragons are having a ball though, the rain and high humidity has brought out the insects and they are feasting. They woke us up this morning crashing through the gardens. This is one of last year’s babies, he’s probably a good 12in (30cm) long. He got cranky with me taking his photo and took off up the macadamia nut tree LOL.

Soft Kitty.

Why is it that when I say I’m taking time off, and I’m really feeling like death today, do I suddenly have the urge to get stuff done? It’s a mystery to me.

I thought I’d do some more re-binding today. Easy hand-work while my butt is expanding on the couch. Spud thought otherwise; I turned my back for two little minutes and there was a cat! LOL

Candy Cane Christmas will have to wait for it’s new wrapping! xx

My new quilt, REINDEER GAMES, is off to be quilted. The pattern will be released soon. I could not get my maths right tonight, every time I added 39 + 4 my brain answered 42 1/2! LOL. There was some swearing, some unpicking, some fudging, but I’m loving those Churn Dash reindeer blocks.

Happy Wednesday everyone, toni xx
