Hi y’all, for split second just then I couldn’t remember what day it was. Gosh this week has flown by and we’ve been so busy. The crew are working long retail hours and I’ve been juggling two property developers who are interested in putting an apartment block where our house currently stands. I got five hours sleep last night and I’m ready to wave the white flag of surrender!
I’ve decided to end our 24 Days of Christmas early – I simply can’t keep up with all the demands on my time at the moment and this coming week is going to be a doozy. It’s also possible that we could be looking for a new place to live in a hurry.
2018 has been an interesting year, both defeating and rewarding, and at times intensely stressful. I haven’t had the time to grow Red Boots as much as I would have liked. To be honest I think I stalled this year, it was hard to stay positive and immensely difficult to be creative.
I won’t wish you a Merry Christmas just yet, I’ll be popping in before the big day to say hi. I’m just giving myself permission, if I want, to take a little Christmassy break and focus on my family and friends.
I’ve put together a little free pattern to end the year. Forgive the lack of decent photos, between the rain and property inspections – well you know how it is. You can download the pattern by simply clicking on the file below –

Merry Little Reindeer
I decided to pad out my pet mat using an old towel as wadding. I added a pretty fabric for the backing and bound it like a quilt using a deep mulberry coloured binding. As long as your iron doesn’t touch the vinyl all is good. It sewed really well and I’m very happy with it. A dog themed pet mat is up next. FREE pattern available next week. xx

It’s my turn to make a free project for the lovelies at Therm O Web and I’m using their FANTASTIC HeatnBond Vinyl. OMG this stuff is amazing, so easy to use. I’m making pet mats to put their food dishes on.
I thought the iron on vinyl would be difficult to use and problematic in our humidity but it’s super easy and the finished result is amazing… look at that gloss. I’m about to put backing on this one and bind it. Next up, a dog themed pet mat. Thank you to the continued support of the lovelies at Therm O Web.
Have a lovely day everyone, toni xx
