Season's Greetings

It's Christmas Eve in Australia and I have just one more small gift to sew. Throughout the year I've been much more organised, pacing myself, and not trying to do the impossible.

I've spent the morning in the garden and am heading out again in a few minutes. In the evening I'll finish off the sewing and will wrap the remaining presents.

This time of year means different things to different people. For me, it's all about family - a day with the most important people in my life.

What we do during the day is not important - being together is.

However you spend this time of year, I hope there's lots of fun and laughter celebrating with the people who mean the most to you.

Seasons Greetings - Merry Christmas - Happy Hannukah

See you in 2016, if not before...

Baby Wash Cloths in a Fabric Basket

Several months ago I made two sets of baby wash cloths. The first ones you can see in the photos below. The second set was made for a virtual baby shower and as part of that present, I made a matching fabric basket. It was a great way to present the wash cloths, and became a gift in itself.

Low Volume Fabric ~ What Does It Mean?

I need your help. When I made my Tic Tac Toe quilt blocks, I had trouble understanding what low volume meant. After reading several blog posts on the topic, I was still unsure at to what type of fabrics low volume was referring to.

Another Christmas present finished!!! I just adore this one. I'm not musically inclined in any way, but it's the combination of fabrics that make this little zippered pouch.
