A pressie for Jo

I'm pleased to say that those yummy fabrics I gave you a sneak peak of last post have now become this:

An Abbey Bag (Pattern by Abbey Lane Quilts)

I just love these little pincushion/scrap bags and have made three of them now. My dear friend Jo has been admiring mine for a while so I knew she would love one for her birthday.....she was thrilled!

My colour inspiration came from here:
A cute little Pillowcase dress that Miss 12 made for her new little cousin... I just loved the fabrics she chose!

Until next time.....

This and That

This last couple of weeks have been pretty crazy in the Thimbelina household..... I've been working full-time instead of my usual three days a week and I'm really starting to feel it. I take my hat off to any Mum's out there that manage to work full time and juggle young family's while still keeping their sanity in tact!

I've still managed to squeeze in a little bit of stitching..... I'm hoping to get a chance to turn this one into a cushion soon. I made one of these a while ago for a swap and really struggled to part with it will be nice to have one for me!

A little retail therapy!
This beautiful book purchased recently includes a project by the very talented Ros of Bloom.... also a member of our Club Quilt Narromine. Lots of nice eye candy in this one!

And lastly:
This is what I'm playing with at the moment....aren't they scrumptious?

Until next time.......
