Well I did say I’d be back to show you what I’ve been making … I thought I’d be here sooner than this though lol.
Firstly is my second Christmas tree skirt in much more modern and brighter colours … this is made with my new pattern “Dressed Up For Christmas” – and being quilt-as-you-go it’s reversible too!!!
I made this one while on retreat in Gympie – oh we had such a wonderful time and I got SO much stitching done .
We had some fun tutorials there, these cute little kimono tape measure holders (great for gifties!!!) And this fabulous little thread catcher basket.I was also working on this while I was there – my CEO is kindly keeping guard for me while I take the piccy he he. It’s a beautiful design by Kim Diehl called “Short and Sweet” from her book “Simple Charm”. I love it!! I even had a go at some needleturn applique’ – it’s not perfect, but I’m still really pleased with the results . And lastly I’ve made a little pressie for a dear friend’s little boy Archie – pirates are a favourite of his at the moment.
Well I’m off to quilt my “Short and Sweet” but before I go, here’s another bit of Maxie-love - just cos I can he he.
***** sigh****** I’m loving being a Grammy !!
