Xmas sewing

Well this year I decided that all gifts that we give to the niece's and nephews will be homemade, mmm well was that a great idea?  Lets just say it is keeping me busy and since I have been without a car for 3 weeks I have actually got quite a bit made and since they are all little I can show them off here LOL.

First of all I decided that Jenny's little baby needed a new romper for xmas so I just made a bought one fancy for xmas.  Oh and don't worry I am working on another one with red so they are both unisex but Jenny has a choice.  I think they have come up fantastic, even if I do say so myself

Also nearly finished X tshirt to go with his parcel of goodies, now
 to finish the cape.  These kids are going to have a ball over xmas.
Jack has drawn a pic of a trex and I have put that on X top and it looks fantastic I am so happy with how it came out.

I also have been working on some no sew tutus that I got a tutorial from the net,so easy and I have now made 4 LOL 3 for the neices
 and one for one of Jacks friends at school.
the neices little tuttus I can imagine them running around on xmas day in these

So I have a few other things on my to do list and one of the first things I have to do is my scrap SS and get that in the post arghhh oh and a present for Jens baby which is due on the 10th.  MMMM time is running out fast

oh and just cause I can here's a pic of my gorgeous Luke who lets mummy sew and sew and sew all day long LOL well almost

will leave it there and get back to the sewing

Cheers Susan

so long again

It is such a busy time of the year at the moment and everything that can go wrong is for some reason.
Buggered my ankle again! and had a truck hit me from behind and push me into a car in front, so therefore have not had a car for over two weeks now.  So you would think that the house would be clean and I would have all the sewing up to date.  LOL not even close.

Since last time I posted I have a new nephew so have made him a little something, now just to get to the Post office and post it.  Had a ball making this gorgeous little softie from  
also got the dinosaur to make for xmas presents.  Also have to get something made for my sisters new baby which will be here in about 3 weeks.  How exciting

On the sewing front I have also made a little softie for Luke to have in bed with him and he loves it.

OK well I need to leave it there for now but I will be back with a pic of the items Fiona gave me for my Bday last month and a pic of the gorgeous dress I bought yest from the op shop.
