The Blessing of Friendship

When I walked into my office this morning I saw this gorgeous gift box on my desk. Attached was a card with the most encouraging words. Words that warm the soul. Here are the contents of the box. I can't wait to create this delightful bag. How adorable is the fabric. Thank you xoxox

Elegance by Windham

I raced in the door after getting home tonight, scanned the kitchen bench, then the table, nothing. I looked to my husband to see if he was going to give me a hint that a parcel might have arrived, no hint, so ran straight for the compter room and there, sitting in front of my computer.... was a parcel. Yes!!! look what was inside. How lovely do these fabrics look altogether. I have a qulit pattern in mind, however, will think carefully before committing to a final project. Sooo exciting!!

Miss allsorts

How cute is this Little Miss Allsorts. A pattern from the latest Get Creative mag from spotlight. It gives you the option to enlarge to whatever size you wish. This one is about 15cm. Next time I might make a small pillow size. Great gift idea!!

Shopping Girls

This cute bag is a Madison Bag Pattern which, I reduce to 70%. I found the full scale version a little too big, but this version just right! Still struggling with getting the Handle's just perfect, however, I will continue to practise with other fabric. My 18 year old niece by marriage, just loved this style so I made her one in a vintage floral. Her friends loved it and have asked me to sell them one. Not sure if I am happy enough with them yet to sell though!!
