Well it's the last day of 2008 already. I don't know about you but this year whizzed by in a flash for me.
And so much has happened. I started a lovely new job. I started a creatively satisfying business with a really fabulous friend. I made lots of stuff. My children are happy and healthy. And I just celebrated 12 years of marriage.
Not bad really!
And along the way I have met the most fantastic bunch of people and done some things that I have never done before. So it's been new challenges and lots of fun too.
I'll finish the year with some photos of a few little projects that are in various stages of completion.
This is a sample for a children's class I will be teaching during the holidays.
Here's Chloe's one. She is always my guinea pig for these projects.
It's fun and we're enjoying working together choosing our shapes and colours.
Next is a quilt ready for quilting.
This is for my girlfriend's baby Ruby who is now six months old. I was going to make her a cot quilt but thought this would last longer.
The pattern is 'Town and Country' by my lovely colleague Judy Newman who will hopefully soon have a blog up and running. I thought I might have a go at machine quilting this one with a bit of hand quilting around the edge.
I just fell in love with the fairy fabric and will be making a similar quilt for Lucinda soon.
Next is another apron pattern. This one is featured exclusively in Issue 2 of Sew Hip magazine which I'm yet to see.
This particular apron is off to the UK to someone who has been waiting many, many months for it.
So I wish you all a very happy and safe New Year and look forward to all the goodness 2009 will bring. Thanks for visiting and all your lovely support and encouragement.
I leave you with a photo of my funny girls. The little one has been teaching the big ones silly faces! xxxxx
