For James

While I was looking after a friends child yesterday I whipped up this gorgeous Tshirt that I am so in love with.  Will be posted down to my littlest nephew soon.

it is only a little bit bigger than the last one I made him so he will get a bigger one for xmas with a pair of shorts and his new little edward the elephant.

and since Jack has just lost his 7th tooth I thought it was time to make a tooth pillow LOL
SO here it is and Ja
ck has done most of the work on it except sewing the eyes and mouth on.  He even hand stitched it closed.

best be off

geez it is only 31 days till xmas

Well I am in full force on the xmas sewing front.  Everything is well underway I just need a good patterns for little boys shorts in sizes 6 months and 1, so have to hunt around all my patterns and see what I can come up with.

Also got my EB scrap secret Santa underway, but need to get it finished and sent off.

My sister is going to get her little surprise in the mail tomorrow I hope.  She heads to Melb to go into hosi on Wed and will be in for about a week.  Freaking me out a bit but she is one of the strongest most stubborn person I know so I know she will be fine as will her baby and hubby.  I hope she loves the little something I whipped up for her.
I hate being interstate when these things happen but she knows how much I wish I was there and that will have to do.  

Getting a bit emotional now so off to another topic LOL

OK had a friends little boy here today so have been upstairs sewing but will need to take a pics of the gorgeous t I made for James.  It is sooooo cute.

ok can't find the other pics I was going to post so better get a few more things done today.

opps forgot this pic

OK so this is the start of the first dolls quilt

Okies back to the kitchen

fabric flowers and more

Well we are heading to Vic for mum and dads 40th wedding anniversary and since we are driving, groan, I am trying to get some things sorted to hand sew in the car.  So with my mission of all homemade presents for the nieces and nephews well underway.  I decided that it would be nice to get the dolls quilt to a point that I could hand quilt.  So I have one ready to go and the other two 80% done.

I have finished the two bibs and skirt for Aiden and Georgia but alas I haven't done pics yet.

Also decided that I would like to make myself a new top to wear to mum and dads.  So in all my wisdom I decided to use fabric that I have never sewn with before.  It worked ok, not perfect but OK.  Still not sure if I will wear it or not but it depends on the weather.

doesn't look great no the dummy but that is cause it hasn't got boobs were as I have LOL

Did pucker a bit at the front but it is still OK

So just in case it is to cold I made a fabric flower to wear with one of my dresses.  Got a few ideas from Heather Baileys flowers but didn't use a pattern just went for it.  I am very happy with the results.

OK well back to these quilts and the mess in the kitchen, will be back with more pics later.
Stay tuned for some more pics.
