Sunshine Beautiful Sunshine.................................


It is hard not to smile when the spring sunshine is breaking through the clouds.  It is such a lovely time of year and makes you feel alive and ready to tackle anything.  Unfortunately that for me will be a vegie patch overgrown with weeds this weekend but the promise of fresh vegies in a few months time will spur me along.  Can you see my little rainbow of stitchery above?  This will be a new BOM due for release in 2012 - I am working on it each evening and am loving it - I hope you do too.



I have also been working on some new projects using appliques cut from my Go Cutter - It is hard not to be motivated when you have this little miracle worker which takes the hard work out of cutting.  Thanks to Sandy I now have a link to a retailer who sells them here in Australia for just $169.00 - Are you tempted?  If so go HERE.



I am still searching for a name for my new "BOM" but I decided that this one will be made from Stash - I have chosen a lovely eclectic mix of Pastel Blues, Pinks & Greens.  I am having so much fun putting it together.

 

Even the cutting table scraps are pretty.  I am thinking that these scraps would look lovely suspended in a glass jar - It seems such a shame to waste them.


Talking about "pretty" look what my friend Jenny sent me last week.  It was such a lovely surprise to receive this in the mail.  It is a pattern in Jenny's Monthly Magazine that she writes "Elefantz Home".  You can subscribe to it each month or even just buy the individual patterns.  Go and visit her and take a look at her Etsy shop she has lots of nice patterns there for you to purchase.

 

I will be finally making my Soy Candles and Melts this weekend and will share with you the process - I am starting to worry about my Christmas list and need to make some inroads to crossing off a few gifts.  In the next few weeks I will also be arranging the Advent Swap for 2011 so all of those "Advent" girls get ready and watch your inbox for further info.

 

Finally I thought I would show you the finished circles adorned quilt from a few weeks ago. 

I hope wherever you are that you are having a happy Thursday and have an action packed weekend planned full of sewing, baking, home making and "me time".

Love and Hugs,

Fee XX

Hi Fee,
Love what you are doing with the Go Baby. I was getting more and more tempted and now you have shown me a bargain path.....Shall have to talk nicely to #1 Husband :)

Hi Fee, It is beautiful and sunny here too, so I plan o sit in the garden and sew for a couple of hours. I tend to let my garden go a bit wild over winter so I'm in the process of getting it back in order again too. Thank you so much for this post, it is full of beautiful things.

What a lovely post. Hope you can enjoy some more 'creating time'.....scraps in a jar sounds good. Such lovely scraps do seem a shame to throw out.
