Fun in my fabric world....

Pretty presents

With paid work seeming to absorb more & more of my time, stitching seems to have taken a back seat...sadly!
But I have been endeavouring this week to finish some Christmas gifts...
only a few more things to do & it is pretty organised.
I have been having fun making the Dressy Hangers from Marg's pattern...

looking a bit formal

lots of fun fabrics to coordinate with the recipients personality!
SSCS present ready to go...not long now till posting!
DD is heading into final exams...a bit nervous but looking forward to a future outside of uni...
here is her completed "stress reliever"!

DS is finished exams...off with friends this week.

Like Marls, I weakened at the sight of the quilt along with Kellie & will try to participate...
I am happy to do a cushion cover though!

Your coathangers are simply gorgeous, half the fun is choosing the colours don't you find? I'm just finishing my sscs pressie, is yours all done? I'm so glad you are joining the quiltalong, I haven't finished choosing what colours I will use yet, have you? xo

Gosh those hangers are gorgeous, just another thing to add to my 'must do one day' list!!! I thought about the quiltalong and then thought again - not a hope of gettting it done!! I will print her instructions for that 'must do one day' list though!!
