End of another year

2016 is almost done and I am enjoying being at home and catching up on sewing and other things in readiness for 2017....talk about wishing time away!

Apart from working on new patterns of my own I have been making shop samples for patterns I will be stocking early next year ....

Just love these cute items from Hatched and Patched....I thoroughly enjoyed making all of them....however I am not a fan of zippers!....note to self....must practice  more!

Loving this "all in one" carry bag for all of your sewing projects.....I just loved using the hankie linen for this project and of course the lovely "Regent street lawns" from Moda.

My terrible efforts at Christmas decorating this year, is as you can see just that!
Thankfully I was saved by a friend who gave me these lovely retro fruit decorations and the wonderful candle holder that I have filled with red and white pips....not too shabby after all.

So...hoping that everyone has a safe and happy holiday season and will see you on the other side in 2017.



  1. Best wishes for a peaceful Christmas and lots of fun stitching in the New Year.

  2. love all your projects......have not even got to start my bag......
