Friday Night Sew In

I have been working of Fig n Berry Bom Twas the night before Christmas from 2016 and I got the 6th one finished.  (3 more to go)


I also managed to get the binding on this Christmas quilt.  (I rang out of time before).



This week I have been having a big clean up and sort out of my material.  Amazing what you find and wonder when you bought it.  I have a plan in my head on how my sewing storage area should look like so lets hope it works out.

I have also been sorting out Angus's bedroom and getting him ready for starting back at school next week.

2017 New year

The last few weeks of 2016 were very busy.  I had a special 0 birthday and lots of Christmas events to attend.


I have started the new year doing some hand stitching.  Lisa's (Fig n Berry) Twas the night before Christmas bom from 2016.  I am now (6 months behind).  Lisa has a new bom starting Feburary so im hoping to get this one nearly finished before the next one starts.

The other night I felt like knitting so I made some more fancy coat hangers for my dresses to stop them falling off.

This year I plan on finishing a lot of kits and using up fabric that I have.  No more impulse buying  I need to use what I have and buy to finish things off.  I am feeling very overwhelmed with the amount of things I have everywhere.

This year is about clearing out things I don't use or need, making things easier to get to.  Spending more time with my boys and doing a lot of fun things.

Happy New Year

All in all I have been productive over the last couple of weeks.

Finishes, Stitched in Time and Friday night sewing in

I am loving getting a lot of Ufo's finished, most of the seem to be Christmas.
 Fig 'n' Berry Christmas
Fig 'n' Berry  twas the night before Christmas
 These were our goodie bags that were on our table at Stitched in Time run by Gail Pan and Ramona Hermann on the 12th November.
 Inside was all these fantastic Kits.
First one I finished I made into a  cushion (Angus has already claimed it)
Next was Holly Christmas Sack
These were Gails kits already sewn and ready to make up.  Christmas banners.
I am thinking of making these into little bags.  Pattern is Decorate for Christmas.

It was another fantastic day meeting new friends and catching up with old ones.

I am on a mission to get most of my Ufo's finished this year at this rate I will be left with 2 bigger projects, so next year I can start on my huge pile of kits to make.

Today is going to be 38 degrees so a good day to sew and be on fire watch.

What I have been up to

Seems so long since my last post but we managed to spend some time away in the sun.  I have been going to a few sit and sew days so I have managed to get some stitching done.


This a flannel quilt for my nieces first birthday next year, at the moment it is at the quilters (getting in early).


This was a ufo that has been sitting around for a while now.  Rosalie Quinlan It's a Redwork Christmas. (needs to be quilted)


2015 Fig n Berry bom Christmas quilt. (Another one needing to be quilted, the quilting pile is getting big)


Gail Pan's A birdhouse home.  I decided to frame this one and have it in my sewing area.


A Festive Star by One Day in  May.  Perfect size.


Andrews bag to hold his Ipod, I pad, and headophone, he is very happy.

Well of to find another Ufo.

Little finishes

Mum asked me for some more knitted socks for Christmas so I have made her 4 pairs.(hot pink, blue, red and purple)
I finished these bags a while ago but need to get the fasteners to close them.
Friday night I started this stitchery by Gail Pan designs a birdhouse home.  I am wanting to frame it but I cant find a nice white pattern frame so I think it will sit for a while.

Have a great week I'm off to do some hand sewing today.
