My final Christmas present is complete. This one is for my mums friend. I am getting some fabrics for Christmas. Hoping to use them for a patchwork project. Possibly some kind of quilt or table runner. Not sure yet. Looking forward to having a go at a few projects rather than doing bits in a hurry. So keep an eye out here over the next few weeks as hopefully I'll get some new bits done. Happy Christmas to all. Xxx

Just finished this bag this evening. Think I am getting better but not sure if they are good enough to give as gifts yet. Think I need some more practice. I now have 12 more Christmas stockings to make before the beginning of December plus possible requests from neighbours. Really struggling to work out costing though. Would like to know how much they are costing me to make but as I never buy enough of anything and have to keep going back to the shop to get more its so hard to work out. Anyone have any tips.

If i cant find one i'll have to have a rethink about how i'm going to make it.
Anyway on a lighter note its my twin girls 3rd birthday tomorrow.I have attempted a chocolate house cake today which i am not very happy with but i'm sure it will taste lovely. Looking forward to lots of fun and party food tomorrow.

here is a picture of this evenings work. The ones that match the bag I finished yesterday look good but I had a go with my curtain fabric and as I thought its too thick. At least now I know for sure. Xxx

Hi guys just finished this bag tonight. Quite pleased with how it looks. Much better than my 1st bag which I made on a dress making course. Yeah I know a bag on a dress making course thats what I thought too.
This one has wadding in which my 1st one didnt which I think makes a huge difference.
Next on the agenda are 10 more stockings before Christmas and I bought 6 metres of different fabrics last weekend and I am not sure what to do with it. Its from a curtain store so im not too sure what I can teally use it for. Any ideas would be appreciated. Xxx
