Foxy Cushions finished

Hooray i got the 2 fox cushions finished in time for my 2 grandsons for xmas.
Its a lovely pattern by Claire Turpin called Foxies.
I am really pleased with how these turned out.

 I put different binding and backing fabric on each cushion so that the boys will know which one is theirs.

I made the cushions to go with the foxes that i made for the boys last xmas,using the same range of fabric.

I have been making xmas decorations using Michelle Ridgway's designs and rectangle template from her beautiful book A Holly Cottage Christmas.

I have two made up now and these are quite quick to make up,i am loving making these cute decorations,i am going to pop them into xmas cards for the ladies in my craft group.

Aren't these roses gorgeous i am proud to say that they are from our garden.

Hope your day is a good one.

Had A Wonderful Time in Melbourne

I had a wonderful time at Vic market with my sister and sister in law.
Here we are at Vic market,it was decorated for xmas.

This is Myer's main window,sorry about the glare that was on the glass.

 The window's theme this year was May Gibb's gumnut babies,they were so cute.

 Lol cant take these girls out anywhere without misbehaving,lol.

 We went to the amazing xmas shop again sorry i have forgotten its name.

 My favourite room was the white and silver decorated room.

 Lol i had to ask my sister to turn around as when she had her back to me she blended in with the xmas decorations,lol.

 And lucky me Myer's had 40% off so these are my early xmas presents from hubby,i was so excited.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

 I managed to finish and sew together another one of Michelle Ridgway's cute designs from her lovely book A Holly Cottage,these go together so quick and are perfect for popping inside a xmas card.
To see what the other girls got up to go here and a big thankyou to my buddy Chez for hosting our night ,lol she did it from the high seas,lol,hope she had a drink for us.

Thought i would show some more of my xmas decorating.

Lol i love elf's,especially xmas ones.

Actually i love gingerbread men too,lol,i love everything about xmas.

Xmas cards all got sent off during the week ,i am trying to be organised this year as xmas tea is at our place.

Off to Melbourne today with my sister-in-law and sister to do a spot of shopping and to see Myer's window which i believe this year is Mays Gibbs gumnut babies.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend .

You Foxy thing,lol.

 I have been making xmas decorations to go into xmas cards,this lovely design is from Michelle Ridgway's book called Holly Cottage Christmas,instead of using the felt for the outer edge i used Michelle's rectangle template and decided to finish it up with the beading on the outside.

I decided to have a go at some FMQ ,lol,it still scares me,but i thought what the heck.

And i am quite pleased with how it turned out.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend,i am off to Melbourne in the morning with my SIL and we are meeting up with my sister at the Southern cross train station..

It was our craft get together on Monday and Raelene bought her beautiful quilt in to show us,it was stunning and very beautiful.

Lots of embroidery in this one.

 Our Barb is always happy and she was busy knitting another scarf for the soup kitchen,the soup kitchen hand out the scarfs and hats to the homeless that need them when they come up to get some soup.

Rosemary was a bit to quick for me she was busy knitting one blue and one pink baby jumper.

And how clever is Liz,she did these beaded ladies,such a beautiful piece of work.

Done forget to signup for FNWF, Cheryll is away but we are still getting together for our virtual sew along.

Hope you all have a wonderful day lots of xmas breakups happening now,hope i can keep up with the celebrating,lol.

3 Finishes for the Month Of November

I have been trying to motivate myself into finishing my 2 littlest grandsons cushions after realizing that we only have 3 weeks till xmas.
So i got the foxes put together and blanket stitched around the pieces by the machine and their eyes embroidered on.

I also got their patchwork border sewn on,now just waiting to sandwich it and do some FMQ on them.
Slowly i am getting there.

 I only had 3 finishes for the month of November,i seemed to do a lot of cooking for that month,lol.

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend.
Cheers Sheryl xx
