A little treat

Normally I never make anything for myself, there are always things I'd like to make but then never actually get round to it. After having my weekly browse around the fabric shops I visit online I saw these fabrics and thought they would be perfect for making a quilted mat to sit underneath my sewing machine.

Lovely!!!! Remind me in 3 months time of this post when I still haven't gotten round to making it ;)

I will be back this week with some fun and easy Christmas tutorials, I don't want to spoil it but it involves using up felt and fabric scraps and of course has a festive theme. I have 4 planned so far and some giveaways too. So I hope you are all starting to feel a little Christmassy!!

Today my friend Andrea and I went to Rufford Christmas Gift fair, it was festive in the sense it was bitterly cold, there was a Christmas tree, lots of gift stalls and plenty of people milling round. But we made it more festive by having a Turkey and stuffing sandwich complete with cranberry sauce and I bought some Stollen to bring home (yum!!).


  1. Ooh, 'fun and easy' Christmas tutorials sound interesting. Can't wait to see what you have to offer.

    Busy busy busy here! Hope all is well with you? Hugs xx

  2. the fabric looks great, don't worry about finishing things, I've still got a lilac heart quilt/duvet cover to finish , from April 2009 oops :-)

  3. That fabric is great. I have a little stash of beads to make something for myself but haven't got there yet. I get them out and look at them, then they go back in the drawer!!

    Look forward to your tutorials.
