Stitching, Sewing and Socialising.

Starts Monday October 6th! 
Jenny of Elephantz has started a 5 day tutorial to make her Christmas table runner. I've decided to join in and make it too. If you'd like to join in you can find the details HERE. 
Looks like fun!
Stitchery and threads are ready to go! 
We have another baby girl in the family! When her little brother was born a couple of years ago I made him a dolphin by Melly and Me and used bright Amy Butler fabrics in blue. This time I've made little Elizabeth a duck (called Dilby) by Funky Friends Factory. Once again I've used lots of bright Amy Butler fabrics, but this time in pinks! 
This was a great pattern and went together really well. Lots of fun making this funky psychedelic duck. 
This morning I made these lovely vintage-inspired thread and button cards. I love them and I love Pinterest for all the wonderful free images you can use to make these. 
Then for the rest of the day I got one more dose of mum before she heads off again.
It was really lovely with my uncles being there as well. Hubby and Jack came too, so it was a real family affair. So good to have lunch and catch up with everyone.
Well I've got the night off work tonight, so I am going to make a start on my Little Quilt. I've joined Sarah Fielke's Little Quilt swap and I can't wait to make one of her gorgeous little quilts from her latest book.
 I've finally decided on the fabrics for my partner and I am going with this little quilt. That was a hard decision too. I can't wait to see what my partner has made for me!!!
Well, better get to it... Looking forward to another day stitching with the Tuesday girls tomorrow. I have heaps to do!!!
Hope you're having a great week!

You are such a happy 'little girl' with your mum, Teresa. I remember thinking that in Melbourne when I met her with you in the motel foyer.
You and she are blessed!

Cute duck! I see where Jenny's vintage cards came from. I didn't realize you made them yourself! Do you know about The Graphics Fairy? You might like it!
