With Fabric and Thread

I was waiting patiently for the postman to arrive and 
here it is "With Fabric and Thread" by Joanna Figueroa.
We all deserve a little spoiling now and then, this is a gorgeous book
and I can't wait to make some of these beautiful projects.

Slipper Boots
These look so adorable and I cannot wait to make one or two  many
pairs for Abbey.

I have always wanted to make a quilt with only two colours, the problem
being which two colours will I choose?? But I do know
that this will be the quilt I choose, I love it!

Placemats!! the perfect gift for Christmas or Mothers Day
or even a friend's birthday, and these are really pretty, I know
I would love to receive a set. Looks like I have some
of my Christmas gifts sorted.

I am so loving these pincushions, when my daughter was five she brought me a 
pincushion at the schools Mothers day stall
which is well worn.

Sad huh!!!!
So you can see I am in need of a new one.
(I will never throw this old pincushion out, it is very precious and together we have produced
lots of fabulous creations over the years)

So it looks like I am going to be a busy bee, just another few
projects to add on to the list of thousands.
Oh well!!   Life is never boring!!

Have fun

Boy! how time flys, its already six weeks
since the wedding and I have only just got
back into normality.

I finally had some time and hit the sewing
room and finished a swoon block, I am looking
forward to this weekend as I will have four days to
myself, whoo hoo!!
I intend to lock myself in the sewing room
and hopefully get a few UFO's completed. Or knowing
me I will probably start new projects!! Oh well,
a girl can never have too many UFO's right????
On another note this a cute little pickie that a
friend took of my grandaughter twirling in her pretty
dress at the wedding. So cute!!!
I got the idea from pinterest to add the things that
she likes at this age, I think its a fabulous idea
and one that I will reuse over again. Speaking of pinterest
I love, love, love pinterest, its addictive, I try so
hard not to go there (cause I should be in the sewing room)
but I am hooked.
Be back soon
