What a fabulous creative weekend I have had!!!! Time to make stuff, I love that when it happens, just pottering & making things.
First a book for my Granddaughters' first birthday, these fabric books are so quick & easy to make.
I bought the panel to make this book from my favourite quilt shop.
Also from The Country Yard the first month of a BOM of sorts, a " Sewing Essential Project".
A block holder.............................

I personalized the back with the twill tape measure. I used Matildia's Own bag batting which is firmer than Iron on Pellon. Each month I will get a kit to make a 'sewing essential'.
I found this a breeze to make, nice clear instructions that I decided to make another!

Last Saturday I had a couple of hours spare ( I suppose I could have done some baking, cleaning or gardening???? ......yeah right!!! )I was keen to have a go at making a cat from a book I got at the Library called : 'Quilt & Sew' by Anne-Pia Godske Rasussen.
I am linking to Narelle for 1 Xmas item. All item's except the first block holder are going into my box for Xmas presents. Did I tell you how much I love this inspirational, motivational idea??
