A New Year


This is a creation I have come up with over the Christmas period.

It is a pincushion/sewing keeper.

I had two Quilt As You Go blocks leftover from a quilt I made for my little girl for Christmas. I had a brain wave to make it into some type of 'thing'.. I really didnt know what. After playing around with some bias... and putting my thinking cap on I came up with the above idea.

inside is the pincushion

This is made from the other Quilt As You Go Block.
I will put a tutorial up for this in the next little while. I just want to get a holiday in so Im fresh and ready for a new start this year.

Over the Christmas time I was very busy.
Our son Matt turned 21. So I had to organise a dinner for him. He didnt want to have anything too big so I cooked dinner for 18 people . in amongst our daughter turning 29 so it was a very busy month for me.

I did manage to get some creating done though

Some Christmas Trees from my Christmas Tree Tutorial on the sidebar as well as some other things

This year on my blog I am hoping to run another Colour Swap. I did this a couple of years ago so keep an eye out for this. I also have a new Block Of the Month I have been working on that I will have available. I plan to give you some more tutorials and some more patterns. I also plan to create to  make as the inspiration comes over me...

So I hope this year is kind to you and you have a wonderful holiday season with family and friends

Hugs

Love the little pincushion/sewing keeper. Looking forward to seeing how you did that. Sweetie, cooking dinner for 18 people is a big deal. LOL
