Thank you so much for voting for the next tutorial
idea in my last post! Surprisingly, there are a lot more
of you than I expected who would like a tute without the use
of a flex frame, and some of you were nice to tell me that you
would like both tutes, one with the frame and the other without,
so I came to decide that I will do both!! I'm really excited
about writing up the tute!! But it would have to be either
at the end of this year or in January when I can have it
available here. I am one of you guys now who are scrambling
because of time running out for getting Christmas gifts!


I've made a quite few of something for Christmas but can't
really show them here until after Christmas; I don't want
to spoil the surprises ;) But I can show you this pincushion
that I made for a Christmas gift for my friend, since it's been
already given to her. She loves marvel colors, especially pink,
which makes it fun for me to come up with a design because
I LOVE working with pink fabric! The pink polka dots fabric
with the little chicks that I used for the top right corner
is what I found in Reprodepot and fell in love with.
I would say it's one of my fave stash now.. just so cute to look at!!


I can't really tell what I've been making but I can't
help giving you a sneak peak of what it is neither. hehe.


Oops, maybe that was a little too much. I hope the recipients
are too busy now to come to my blog. If you happen to come
here, please pretend you didn't and act surprised when you
find these in your stocking! ;)

Alright, time to get back to more sewing!

I hope you are all having a not too busy happy holiday season.

Thanks for coming and reading!!



  1. I'm so excited you'll be writing up both tutorials! The pincushion is lovely, the fabrics are all so cute!

  2. I'm always amazed at how you can create such cute and neat things! I'm also waiting eagerly for the tutorials^^

  3. That snowman fabric is so cute! I'll have to do up some of the baskets for the shop and as some belated gifts.

    I did some similar potholders for gifts, but can't post them yet. Love digging through the scraps. Secret!

  4. Love the little trees! Happy Holidays!

  5. Great post, the pink pin cushion is adorable and I'm sure the recipients of the tree coasters (?) will LOVE them. So cute.

  6. I just stumbled on your blog and am so excited to find a fellow penguin admirer. Your knitted penguin is absolutely the best thing ever! Jealous!
    Thanks for sharing.

  7. Your gifts are wonderful! I look forward to see and use your tutorials :)

  8. I come to your site for years and I love it. I am trying each time to leave you a post but ... Today may be the day I succeed.
    I love all what you do!
    I discovered your site by the basket, so nice to make ... I've told all my friends about it!
    Have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy new year.

  9. How nice to see what you've been up to! Thanks for the sneak peek. I think we all understand. I have photos of a project just "burning a hole in my pocket".

    At least it's something to look forward to doing after Christmas!

    Have a Very Merry Christmas!

  10. fun! can't wait for the tute! And your presents look lovely!

  11. Darling trees--I first saw them by Kathy Mack on the cover of Quilting Arts Gifts magazine. Her trees are slightly different but so cute too!!! Terrific holidays gifts...for next year perhaps.

  12. Whats up, This is a wonderful summation, I located your blog checking google for any similar subject and observed this. I couldnt find as well significantly other tips and information on this posting, so it was fantastic to discover this one. I will almost certainly be returning to think about a number of other articles which you have written another time.
