Some Christmas Purchases

I was travelling at Christmas and other than a little hand sewing I didn't do any other sewing (and had major withdrawals!) but I did buy a few things to tide me over till I got home.

I got a few new quilt patterns...

Little Patchwork Village Wall Quilt  by Rosalie Quinlan, 48" x 48". A nice mix of quilting and stitching. The little pictures to stitch are just gorgeous!

Pretty Teds in Bed by Calico Farm Designs, 39" x 47". I'm going to do one  for my little boy and one for my little girl. Not sure on what colours yet but thinking colours like dark purples, aquas, hot pink, lime greens??? Love this cute pattern. It's so sweet! 

Chubby Chicks by Black Mountain Quilts, 60" x 60" finished size. I bought some Moda charm squares (Bella print) to make this one, just need to pick the 'green' colour to match the charm squares and I'm off!
My first oliver + s pattern, Puppet Show Tunic, Dress & Shorts Pattern.  I especially love the shorts in this pattern, I love the cuff on them! Fingers crossed that it's an easy pattern to put together!
Lunch Bags! A Design Collective book with fabulous designs for lunch bags and sandwich wraps etc. My sister has already put in an order for some snack bags :)

The Practical Guide to Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman. Run out as quick as you can and get a copy of this one. Especially if you are just starting out quilting. It's a fantastic book, very easy to follow and I love that each of the quilt designs are sorted by difficulty and have various options for different colours or designs. I can't wait to make the first of (hopefully!) quilts from this book!

A resolution for the new year...

I think I'd like to try and take better photographs in the new year... I love to create but am terrible at making sure I take photos of the things I make and when I do the quality leaves a little to be desired!

Here looks like a great place to start!!!

Blogger's Pillow Party

Stiched in Color is having a pillow party in 2011! To join in the fun go HERE and see what it's all about. I already had plans to make a pillow to match a quilt I made my mum for her birthday so I'm in!
