Another Finish

I managed to finish the Lovebirds I started last FNSI.  So here they are - Lily & Lenny Lovebirds.  Sweet - aren't they! 
I would have finished them earlier but we had a lovely relaxing weekend - enjoying the sunshine with the kids.  Here's some photos of the kids having heaps of fun in the sun under the sprinklers! 

Happy Sewing!

FNSI results

Last night was Friday Night Sew In and I managed to work on a couple of projects.  I only finished one of them - which was a small notebook cover and then I started two softies - Lily & Lenny Lovebirds. 

They are from Australian Homespun magazine (Vol 12. no. 9), and designed by Melly & Me.  Pop over and have a look what everyone else has been working on for their Friday Night Sew In.
Another softie I completed earlier in the week was Rudy the Reindeer. 

He's also a Melly & Me design and I have made a few of these last year as Christmas gifts.  So now I have another one all ready for Christmas!
Happy Sewing!

Teddy Bears Picnic

Today Reuben the donkey is joining in the Teddy Bears Picnic.  He has his bag packed and is ready to go. 

Reuben is designed by the talented Jodie Carleton of Ric Rac and I fell in love with him immediately.  He will definitely have a permanent home here with me.  I love the details on his jacket and his satchel and he only took me a few days to make up.  I can definitely see myself making up some more from this design - although I will find it hard to part with them.
Happy sewing!

Santa's Little Helpers

Yes - we are getting closer and closer to Christmas!  So here's a cute little pattern I designed that you can make up in a weekend called 'Santa's Little Helpers'.  This pattern has been part of the Cookies & Cream Craft Christmas Club - so some of you may have already seen it or made some up!  If you have I'd love to see a photo! 
So here they are - meet Alfie & Evie Elf. 

Bring a little Christmas Magic into your home with these cute little Elves.  With their spotty gloves, shoes and hats and stripy tights they are sure to bring some Christmas joy & laughter to your home.  And with jingle bells on their shoes and hats, if you listen carefully, you might hear them helping Santa putting the presents under the tree on Christmas Eve!

This pattern will now be available from Cookies & Cream Craft online shop or from my local patchwork shop Riviera Patchwork.

I hope you love them as much as I do! 

Happy sewing!
