I sewed last week, a little.


I sewed some more makeup bags which I am hoping to sell at the Fullarton plant and craft market next Saturday. (If you are in Adelaide come see us!)

And I did the binding on the "Daisy Blue" doll quilt. This was fun. I used cotton batting in this little quilt and fell in love with it. So nice to work with!

Not sure what I am going to sew this week. Bunting has been on my mind (strange statement! I love bunting and I do spend time thinking about it, strange to say.). I have my SSCS (secret santa christmas swap) to finish off and send. (BIG SECRET!) I am desperate to show you some bits, but this must remain secret until after December 25th! (And I can't be trusted! I'm not good at sneak peaks!) I also could sew for the market on Saturday. So I have lots to sew. It's not so much if, as what I will end up sewing. I also have a million emails to catch up with and a trillion posts on bloglines that are screaming at me. And my blog needs updating. I have discovered heaps of really exciting blogs lately that I read all the time, but haven't put in my blogroll yet! I need to share them with you! Hope your week is as wonderful as mine appears right now! A week of sewing and internetting! (Who could ask for anything more?)

I am constantly amazed at all the things you make. I so love the quilt it's so pretty. A question though....What is Bunting?? I don't mean to seam ignorant, but have no idea what it is.

Great make up bags! I just bought some cotton batting to give it a go - glad to hear it is great!

Make some Christmas inspired bunting, that would look good. Sometimes its hard finding time to update the blog, I need to set aside some time for that. That market sounds interesting, I might be able to engineer a trip around that way on Saturday.
take care

Hello Kris

Just popped in from Pip's blog - always nice to find another SA blog.

It never ceases to amaze me how people with 2+ kids can produce handicrafts/works of art/treasures like you do! I am flat out coming home from work at 4pm, tidying, making tea, tidying, dishes, tidying, did I mention tidying up after my K17 and B15????
Weekends seem to disappear all too quickly.

You are amazing and I can't wait to go back thru your blog and see what lovely things you've produced.

Cheers for now, Joolz (SA)

You are one busy lady! Wish I lived closer so I could go to the market and see all the goodies. I need to find out how much the winged dragon is from Mrs 24 for my grandson.
