Chrissie fun and a pattern special!!

Thanks so much to all of you for your kind words to Bear about finally ‘flinging’ her brace. I should’ve posted some of the “out-take” piccies where the brace was out of shot or Bear was laughing so hard cos I took the pic AFTER the brace landed he he he. Good thing I don’t do photography for a living … he he he, we’d be BROKE for sure LOL!!!!

Had a really fun day yesterday … Bear and I travelled up to Mooloolaba for the day as the ladies from “The Sewing Basket” had invited us to be guests at their Club Christmas Party!! It was such a fun morning with games and raffle prizes a-plenty!!!Here’s the gawjus girls with Santa …December 09 002and he had gifties for everyone too!!!

They had such a fun auction as well … all the clever Club Members had each made a tree ornie and they were each raffled to raise money for charity … this year the money went to RSPCA :o). Here’s the one’s I bought …December 09 008  3 little Angels made from yo-yos … how clever is that!!!??! And this cute Santa Sack with a beaded bottom …December 09 010 I also couldn’t resist buying these while I was there … brand new from Fig Tree Quilts are these “Whimsy” fat quarters … aren’t they just GAWJUS!!!!?!???December 09 014Mmmmm, pretty!!!  I think I can see a tablerunner there … if I look reeeeally hard ;o)!!!! Thanks to everyone at The Sewing Basket, Jess and I really enjoyed our morning with you :o)!!!

Most of the stitching I’m doing at the moment is secret Chrissie present stuff so I can’t show you cos I don’t want to spoil any surprises ;o)!!! But … I thought I’d have another SPECIAL on another one of my newer patterns ~ just for you my bloggy friends!!! Honeycomb

This is “HONEYCOMB” and it’s made from 1 jelly roll and about 2m of the cream background – plus your borders and backing etc. It’s 82” x 82” and easy to make cos it’s quilt-as-you-go!!! I’m going to pop the PDF pattern on my sidebar for a little while for just $7.50!!! HOHOHO :o)!!!! I can email the pattern to you as soon as payment is received … NO POSTAGE, YAY :o)!!!!

Well I’d better go and start the day …. I’m still sitting here in my jammies he he he!!!

Take care …

Hugs,

Joy :o)

Oh no....I MUST resist....jellyroll you say??? quilt as you go you say???? ....oh dear..work computer won't let me click on the sidebar...I may be safe..I'll just browse your website in my lunch-hour....
NOOOOOOO...not fair...trying desperately not to drool over possibilities - I have WAY TOO MANY cross-stitching projects to complete to take up patchwork/quilting...no no no no no.... I must resist...
(sigh - only postponing the inevitable!) See me after christmas!
