What?? Christmas is coming?

I have barely given a thought to Christmas other than order copious quantities of food and drink – the fizzy wine has arrived…

Fizzy wine has arrived...

Just ONE person is getting a home made present from me this year (*handing in my designer-maker union card, whilst relatives breathe a sigh of relief*). I made this little coin purse as a surprise gift for a friend:

I love this Echino fabric so much, and was delighted to discover I have a fair bit left (the rewards of delving around in my fabric stash mountain), because it doesn’t seem to be so easy to get hold of any more.

I am now busy writing a tutorial for Fat Quarterly, which will naturally involve Liberty fabric and the finished item will look something like this:

Liberty log cabin pincushion

This little pincushion is made up of four tiny log cabins stitched together – a great way to use the tiniest of scraps! I am selling this over on Facebook if you fancy a little Christmas gift for yourself (free Liberty Lawn scrap pack included… if that helps?).

I have a little piece of shop news from my Liberty emporium on Folksy… as a Christmas gift to my lovely customers, any orders made between now and December 25th will be automatically entered into a draw to win a bundle of 12 Liberty lawn mini-singles of their choice and a copy of The Liberty Book of Home Sewing. I am also offering gift vouchers, for needlewomen/men who like to choose their own Christmas presents! I can send these by email, for you to print off, right up to the 24th December (just in case…).

    Really pretty pin cushion, which just goes to show you should never throw left over scraps of fabric away. They can always be put to good use. Your friend will be delighted with her purse too.

  4. I suddenly had a horrifying realisation about an hour ago that there’s only 2 weeks left! I think it’s because I still have another week and a half at work that’s throwing me…
