Helping Lucy

I have been helping a friend make some Christmas presents over the last couple of weekends, so I thought that I would show what we have been up to πŸ™‚ Β I would say that we are doing okay, Lucy is learning to sew and I am learning about quilts or blankets πŸ˜€

Two quilts the same one with a star back and the other with hearts.

Β Off to the fabric store we went I was brave any let him choose his own fabric πŸ™‚ and what a great choice he made πŸ™‚ There is the shorts now have to work on a top πŸ™‚ Β But it will have to wait a day or two I have another project to do first.

Christmas Craft swap

I have posted off my swap and received a lovely dress for Rachael πŸ™‚ it is so very sweet. I have a couple of photos but Miss Rach did not wish to play along with the photo taking tonight πŸ™‚

Big THANK YOU to TIna for the very cute gift πŸ™‚

Tis the Season

Well tis the season to be jolly πŸ™‚ decorate your house in tacky lights and tinsel and think that it is beautiful. Β We jumped the gun a little this year and our tree has been up for a while, the lights are now flashing on the house and the cars are stopping as they pass by. Β So this is our effort for lights this year πŸ˜€

and for some reason it appears that Santa Homer is a little head heavy this year.

Using up the stash

I have decided that I have way too much flannette and fleece lying around and so it is time to use it up. Β This is my first Β of many get rid of the nappy fabric projects and is my 2nd attempt at a quilt, over all pretty happy with it πŸ™‚ it was meant to be bigger but oops I cut a few pieces wrong πŸ™‚ Β but that is okay Lachie is only small πŸ™‚ it will be perfect for him.

I still have the binding to go and am hoping to get my hands on some more red with white dots binding that I used on the Christmas pillows.  😦 Sorry Andrew another spotlight visit  LOL

Finished dress :)

Just a quick photo of Rach in the finished dress πŸ™‚


A dress for Rach

Well it would have to be a first for me for a while making two dresses in one day and finishing the Christmas pillows πŸ™‚ Β I found this sweet girly print fabric and grabbed some to make a name bag for Rach but liked it too much and so I went back for more πŸ˜† I just love the bugs and snails on it πŸ™‚ Β This is also the first garment that I have ever put rick rack on and soon realised that it was pretty easy and very effective, I will be using it again πŸ™‚


SO here is the almost finished dress< I just need Rach to try it on so I can get the neck and the tie at the right height and length.
