Ballerina Faerie Quilt

I had a fabric pre-printed "panel" in my stash that was just sitting there waiting to be loved.
I never get enough time to finish items like this off so I gave it to Julie from HeRe to machine quilt.
As always, Julie did an amazing job on it... so now this Ballerina quilt is ready & waiting for DD#2.
She loves to give these floor PLayQuiLTs as a baby "tummy time" gift to a work colleague or acquaintance..
Over the weekend I finished sewing the binding so at least now I'm ready for a "girl" request.

Ouch Pouch

I needed another Christmas gift so I whipped something up.
It’s the perfect small gift to be used as a stocking filler I think... &...
What's better than 1 gift  ???   
Why... 3 of course  !!!
Trish from here... shared the original pattern from here while at our recent Bathurst retreat.
I remembered it & looked it up on the web yesterday. All three made up in no time at all.
I popped in hand sanitizer/ lip balm/ bandaids, safety pin...etc...
Thanks Googy Girl & Melissa for sharing your idea.
I joined in with Wendy yesterday too (I was out for the evening) a bit early I know but I didn’t want to miss it it was the last Friday Night Sew In for the year.✔
Of course I didn’t know at the time it wasn’t on... oopps... so I can join in again next week.
It's also the last gift being shown on Narelle's group 1 Xmas Item A Month.✔✔
I also used my stash to complete all 3 pouches... Scrap Busting Challenge ✔✔✔

A Gift

My "special gift" recipient in the Fat 1/4 Birthday Club was Jeanette... so I sent her a MiNi for her home.
Jeanette loves CaTs... so of course the MiNi had cats on it.
The parcel has arrived & been opened... so it's now safe for me to show it.
I tried to capture the colour of one "cat" correctly as well...

I'm back home and in the cubbyhole again.
Last night saw only a little sewing but I did do more on a Christmas gift.
As it's still a work in progress I will hold off pic's until the gift is finished.

How did you go last night at Friday Night with Friends. Accomplished what you wanted to I hope.

I hope you have all enjoyed joining with online friends throughout 2017
& I hope I will see you all again on
January 5th, 2018
Merry Christmas...

Off Once Again

If you notice over the coming weeks that my blog post are almost non existent... it's because I'm away.

Yep another holiday...

 We left this morning...
 on a train...
 then a plane...
 to board a ship...

You will be pleased to know that I wasn't dressed like this...

Bathurst Bloggers Retreat

At our recent annual retreat to Bathurst NSW... 12 lovely ladies attended.
We all enjoyed each others company by sharing a few funny stories, & laugh or two... & perhaps a glass of wine. All meals were provided so there were NO meals to prepare or dishes to be done.
Now that's what I call a ReTReaT.
With permission... I share some pic's for all to enjoy...
All the gang...
Receiving our swap gifts...
To prove we did work. Some achieved a LoT & some like me achieved at little at least.
Fiona was on FiRe... so was Deb V... & Julie was on a roll... lots more but alas NO pic's to prove it...
And a special visit from Annie Downs... & Kate's gift to Annie...
                           THanKs GirLs... &... See you all next year... xox
