Fun in my fabric world....

Christmas cheer!

It was pretty exciting to hear that the recipient of my SSCS has received her parcel in far off Norway!It only took a week to arrive...funny to think that it is over in the snow now, far away from the humidity, heat and our noisy bug zapper! I really don't enjoy this heat and wish I was with my parcel!
 There is so much secretive sewing going on...I know that some of my friends "lurk" on my blog... I need to be careful what I show! Might throw a few sneaky peeks soon.
This doorstop..."Christmas Tree Cheer" by Anni Downs is almost done...it just needs a few extra plastic pellets & a star on top....but I need to drive to Maitland to get some more! It is super cute & will be a welcome addition to our Christmas decorating. Isn't the fabric great?
Patchwork has permeated every nook & cranny of our home...even the dog blankets have that touch of "wagga" or perhaps a smattering of influence from Gee's Bend???? It was such a great washing day that I thought they deserved a freshen up. Don't they look fun?

Oh no, give me the heat any day!! I wish I was down under with you!! Getting too cold here for my liking. The doorstop is really cute and the quilts look fantastic hanging on the wash line.

I love the doorstop! Really cute and cute choice of fabrics. That's once time that laundry is fun, when you hang quilts on the clothesline! Yours look so bright and pretty! Even dogs need a nice soft quilt!

I have just bought that pattern so it definately won't be for this Christmas!!! Yours looks great. I love my washing on the line on a fine day.

I am so loving your doorstop! Of course, as soon as I saw your fabric sneak peeks I went looking for some...but haven't had any luck so far :(
Is Maitland your nearest shopping centre? I'm originally a Dungog girl myself, so have done plenty of shopping in Maitland!
Your dog is very lucky to sleep on such pretty blankets.

Christmas Tree Cheer looks fantastic! and your clothesline is very colourful. Good idea to have the pavers covering a good section under your clothesline; I can't begin to count how many times I have had washing drop into mud/dust....not to mention when the cow sneaks into the yard....
