FNSI


For FNSI with Wendy and the girls i didnt do much stitching i did mainly preparation work.


I bought this PDF pattern a few years ago online and i thought its about time i started it,it will be a garland of xmas trees and houses,there was so many tiny pieces to cut out.


I also got this hugs and kisses stitchery traced out


And i also got 6 Fig'n'berry xmas decorations traced out.

Now to see what all the other girls got up to last night go here,thankyou so much Wendy for being a great hostess.

Life only comes around once.
So do what makes you happy and be around people who make you smile.

Pretty Patchwork Jewelry Wrap


It was my DD1's birthday yesterday so i decided to make her a Jewelry Wrap ,i used a 2 1/2' pack of Comma, for Zen Chic for Moda and some plain french general fabric that i bought in Tassie last year.


My daughter travels alot interstate each week with her job so i thought the jewelry wrap would be useful for her as she loves her jewelry.


This was a lovely pattern by Lisa Cox of A Spoonful of Sugar


I have had Lisa's book for a little while and this is the first thing i have made out of it,browsing through again there are some more projects that i would like to make.


This is also the first of many jewellry wraps that i will make,think the grand daughters will get one each also,and maybe some friends,lol,think i have found a new addiction.

My Mother My Friend


I have finished this lovely stitchery by Sally Giblin of The Rivendale Collection called "My Mother My Friend"


It was a bit tricky for me working out the fabrics as this is to go on mum's bed and her bedspread is blue and purple.


Once the stitchery is done it doesnt take too long to put the cushion together.


I was pleased with how it looked in the finish,and so was mum.


This was for mum's birthday next month but i wanted to give it to her now,mum turns 80 on the 2nd of March.
I have a few Riverndale patterns so i will make up some more,i quite like these patterns.

I have been getting alot of stitching done and have just finished this Cinderberry one.


And i have also started on a jewellery wrap for my DD1's birthday coming up soon,this is a lovely pattern by Lisa Cox


I have had this box for awhile and decided to make them up ,so now we have a healthy snack ready.


I also made up this Broccoli Apple salad to go with crumbed blue grenadier,its a recipe i got off FB.


This was very yummy and even hubby liked it,a quick easy one to make and very good for you as well,i did steam the broccoli for a few minutes as hubby and i arent into raw veggies
