I Did It!

I have conquered my fear of zips! 
After looking at a YouTube tutorial on putting zips in a cushion, 
I did it. It was so easy and I just don't know why I have always avoided them.




"H" for Harmony.
The first five Christmas presents for nieces and nephews finished!
As I was now an expert on zips, I then made the 
challenge project from the Tilda Lover's Club on Facebook. 
This was a little bit trickier but I got this made quite quickly.

Friday Night Sew-In

Last night I started stuffing the first of the Christmas soft toys. 
This is just a peek. I'll show you what I've made when it's all finished. 
Even if I do say so myself, I think he is rather cute!
Thank you to Wendy for hosting us. 
You can see what others got up to here.
PS. I've just figured out how to get single spacing with a return.  
On the tool bar where it says "paragraph", change it to "normal".

Friday Night With Friends

With not being able to really go out and shop, 
I've decided to make the nieces and nephews Christmas presents this year. 

Last night I cut out lettering ready to be ironed down. 
Also finished stitching baby Ameliana's Santa sack label. 
Gave up with baby Darcie's as I kept missing single
 threads and continually unpicked.

Thank you to Chez for hosting us last night. 
You can see what other's got up to here.

OPAM For September

Four finishes for September. My Tilda swap goodies.


 The Happy Stitcher wall hanging.

Thanks to Kris for keeping us inspired.

It may be just me but I hate this new blogger. It puts the photos in reverse order and adds larger line spacing. I wish they'd go back to how it was. Rant over!

A Tilda Swap

I have recently taken part in a Tilda inspired swap 
with the Tilda Lover's Club on Facebook.


My swap partner was Monika.

I made her a stitching folder.


We also had to make a decoration.

The third item was a Tilda inspired card.

I didn't have any card stock so I made a fabric postcard.

This is what I received from Monika.
A lovely cross-over bag and a gingerbread man swag. 
She also put in some chocolates.
 Speaking of Tilda, look what Mitchell & Steph 
and Nelson & Jemma gave me for my birthday! 
A bundle of Tilda "Old Rose".

How lucky am I!
Now to decide what to make with them.
