Another finish for 2010.....

I had this couch companion cut out,traced and ready to work on since early last year.,sitting in a zip lock bag.Finally I started on the embroidery section and this Friday I finished that and put it together today.I've made some changes to the pattern to make it easier for me next time I make it as the pattern had me stuffing the pin cushion before attatching it to the background fabric....way too hard to manouver when sewing it together on the machine so I unstuffed it reattached it again and then put the binding on before I stuffed the pincushion again.
I'll definately be making this again as it was fun despite the fustration with the pincushion,

I couldn't resist and now I'm addicted!

Here are the promised photo's of the extra tea bag wallets I made up all in diferent colours.I loved how quick they were to make up.More pressies for my Christmas box!
I also couldn't resist making up these fabric boxes that I saw on Jenny's blog and made one up really quickly.I have five more cut out and ready to sew together.I think a few of these will also be going into the Christmas box to be filled up with fabric and notions for the sewers and potions and lotions for the others.

I've been busy,oh so busy.....

The last couple of weeks have been busy ones for me.I've completed the hexie for my partner Lucky and finished a couple of blocks for the red and white quilt I've been working on made up more tea bag wallets (photo of these next post) as well as finishing of one of my PIF gifts that is going to be posted off tomorrow (photo of the PIF gift when I know the recipient has received it,don't want to spoil the surprise).
So the photo's are off Lucky's hexie I made for her (the cat one),thanks for being my partner Lucky and the gorgeous heart one is the one Lucky made for me.Aren't I a lucky girl.

I think I'll have to do another photo post with all the hexies together to show you all the lovlies I've been receiving from my partners,maybe tomorrow with the tea bag wallet photo.

More gift making

I found this great tutorial on making tea bag wallets and just had to try it out and voila I now have two to add to my gift box..I decided to jazz mine up a bit by adding a suffolk puff to the closure instead of just using a button.
I'm thinking I'll be making a few more of these for gifts as they are so quick and easy to make up.

Another couple of finishes.......

This weekend I've been working on a couple of bags.The purple bow bag "Moonshine Design" I have had nearly finished for five years!! all it needed was the bow,and pocket made up and then to actually put the bag all together which I did today.
The raspberry and aqua bag I made up in under an hour it was so quick I was left wondering why it took me over a year to even cut out the material I had put aside for it with the pattern???
I have a couple of more pairs of handles so I think I'll be making up more bags but in diferent colourways.The raspberry and aqua bag is already being used to store my bag patters in,so much nicer than a box

Bunny Hill BOM: 12 Months of baskets

This weekend I've been working on putting this BOM together.I'm pretty pleased with myself because I've only used my stash to make up all the blocks and the borders.I haven't bought one piece of fabric for this BOM I just used what I had.
I love how it's turned out and how all the colours I've chosen blend so well together.
What do you think??
