PATTERNS USED: DOLLY BASKETS .. the wonderful free pattern from Geta's Quilting Studio..
click HERE for link. This a great pattern. We used this pattern in the Quilted Basket Swap earlier in the year.
ART FOLDER .. another fantastic pattern. This time from Jennifer Casa at JCasa handmade .. click HERE for link.
I also made another Dolly basket for a little friend, but I forgot to take a piccy - it was very cute too!
I still have a few things to finish off, but I feel very happy to have all the special things ready for the little ones - I have added a few stocking fillers into their bags plus one dvd each (suggested by their Mum's).
Just lately our weather has been so glorious! no hot and sweaty days for quite a while now.... I wonder if this means we will have a cool Christmas Day (as opposed to a sweltering hot and yukky day) - I love this weather .. so perfect for sewing.... so I had better get back to it!
