Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone!!!  I am returning from my fabulously peaceful and restful Christmas Holiday, my family was visiting from the United States and it was lovely to turn off the computers and phones and just chill out for two and half weeks.  Recharging the batteries...

Any who, I did do a small amount of sewing over the Christmas holidays.  Most of the work was finishing up projects left unfinished, sewing bindings on and a few clothing repairs -- school uniform repairs to be exact!  I had a great time playing with Lil' Twister and my new Sizzix Cutter.
Charm pack and Lil Twister, we sell both the Lil Twister and the larger Twister template.

Tumbling Block table runner.
I enjoyed both of these table runners, quick and as always a great way to practice my free motion quilting.  With the left over charm squares I made this oven pad for the kitchen, I used 2 layers of Insul bright so it won't matter which direction you hold the pad.

Finished Cushion, just in time for next Christmas! LOL
I finished up my little snow lady just in time for next Christmas, typical!! The more I look at her the more I come up with more ideas on how to embellish the pillow with extra quilting.  The back of the cushion cover is an envelope style closure so I can continue to quilt it through out the year....

Awww, so cute.
I played with my new Sizzix Die cutter and look at this adorable Duck, how cute would this block be in a baby quilt.  Maybe tomorrow I will start putting together a sweet little quilt for display in the shop. These ducks will be available for sale in the shop complete with Heat n Bond already on the pieces.

Until tomorrow, I have a few more items to share but I need to pace myself.

Happy sewing!
