What a lovely surprise…..looks like our wet season has arrived with the weather coming in off the cyclone off New Caledonia…..we haven’t had rain for months……this will freshen things up a bit, as well as clean up the old year and start the new year afresh…..literally!!!
Can you tell we don’t get rain very often here in the dry tropics???? hee hee
Well, what perfect weather for some last minute finishes for the year…..pity they’re not UFO’s I could claim for our Sew It’s Finished blog, which, by the way, is open for new members for 2013 if you have a stack of UFO’s and your goal is to get them done!!!! (hint, hint!)
This one was from the tutorial and pattern Fee had on her blog a little while back. You can even buy the coin purse frames at Fee’s Shabby Shack …such a bargain and so quick and easy! (another goodie for the Birthday stash!)
I made this for my SIL’s birthday which I missed………in August!!!! Now you can see why I need to organise myself a little better with the Birthday-Love Stash!!! You can join with me too….just click on the link to find out more!
….and yes….she loved it!
My other finish is a hot pad…….
my very first go at hexies…I love ‘em!
And I just adore that fabric…….”Odds & Ends” by Julie Comstock for Moda….I’ve just ordered some more from HERE
I love the quotes…..practice twirling…, Find beauty in the everyday, Dare to dream big, fall in love with life, overcome, own your talent…….the list goes on!!!!
Things I need to definitely keep in mind for 2013, which is just around the corner.
Hubby and I are going out on the town this year, off for a full seafood banquet for tea and then to see in the new year. Can’t wait!
So I’ll wish you a very happy New Year…..may it bring you all that you wish for - and some; may it exceed all our expectations with hope, love, faith, health and happiness for our world, our friends and our families.
May your bobbin always be full, may your stitching never unravel and… “may the warmth and love you give, return to you all year, to brighten your days in so many ways, and fill your life with cheer!” – Helen Steiner-Rice
