Sants Sack Swap - Sent

Jeanette has opened her gifts in the Santa Sack Swap so its time to share what I sent.


We have both received gorgeous Santa Sacks in previous years so opted for another type of bag.
I chose to make Jeanette a "Dilly Bag"


Out of Bonnie and Camille fabrics.

Jeanettes favourite colour is Purple


Needlebook and Tissue cover


and whats a swap parcel without chocolate :o)


An Annie Downs design Shoe bag


A mini quilt made from a Rosalie Quinlan design teamed with Bonnie and Camille Scrumptious


and lastly a Social Tote 


So pleased that you like your gifts Jeanette. I enjoyed putting this parcel together for you.
Now, I was going to wait until Christmas Day but I feel that my willpower is weakening and the paper may just come off soon ;)

Hugs Sharon



Please hand me the Tissues

It happened again!

I blinked and now this one Graduated .... Grade 6
They had their Graduation Ceremony and Dinner Monday night.


I am so proud of the beautiful young lady she is growing into and the
amazing friends that she has surrounded herself with.


Tomorrow is that last day that these two will ever be at school together :(


Lily is excited as she now gets to bring the newsletter home (only a 5yo could see that as being an upside of your big sis leaving!)

Next year is going to be a big one on our house.
Bring it on :)

hugs Sharon xx

Pressie for Myself ;o)

Do you love Coloring In?

I have always loved coloring books and I have lost many hours sharing a coloring book with my kids over the years, but never have I had an "Adult" coloring book.

So for Christmas I have treated myself to these.




They probably wont make it here before Christmas so in the meantime I will continue to enjoy Jenean's IG feed and even consider some retail therapy in the purchase of some of her fabrics and of course sharpen the Derwents!

#schnitzelandboonminiquiltswap Round Three

I bit the bullet and joined in this wonderful swap.
I have watched the previous rounds and the talent is mind blowing.
So with a little hesitation and a lot of stalking of my secret partner I have started.

My Partner like Cotton and Steel Fabrics so out came my stash


and the EPP began


This is where I am up to so far.


Just a few more pieces and another round then time to work on the background.

Better get moving as I've also signed up for a Rainbow Mini Swap.

Tula Meet Hazel

I seem to have accumulated quite a Tula Pink fabric collection since starting my 
La Passacaglia Project  so I've decided to use some and make myself a 

"Hazel Hedgehog Quilt"
pattern by Elizabeth Hartman and can be found HERE


These were all made last weekend and I am hoping to add a few more this weekend.









They are time consuming blocks with each taking an hour+

This one is "Mummy"



Will you be Hedge-hogging?

hugs Sharon
