A few little finishes for December to show first. My lovely Tilda seaside doll, I have called her seaside Sally. I have started a new love affair with Tilda and have a couple of other doll kits to make up in the coming months.
Continuing my new love affair with a Tilda I have joined the a Tilda club and completed project one and two.
project one is a pyramid pin cushion.
Project two and armchair sewing caddy.
I have also mustered up a couple of pretty cushions from layer cake left overs and some matching fat quarters. The fabric is by Fig tree designs, one of my favourites, I love the soft apricots and greens.
Wrapping up 2014 it was a whopper of a year....
In January I took a risk leaving my full time job and taking on a 9 month maternity contract. But this week it has rewarded me with being offered a full time position in my new company commencing today.
Travel was amazing with my Month in Europe in September, a dream holiday that exceeded my expectations, this was to celebrate 20 years of marriage to my darling husband Sergio.
Getting my first quilt pattern published in April, and making a magazine cover in November both very exciting on the quilting front.
And last but not least was the birth of darling Willow, my daughters first baby, and grand baby number 8 for me, even more special to be present at her birth. Here she is enjoying her first Christmas.
So what's in store for 2015?
Another new baby, yep grand daughter #four ( grandchild #9) is coming sometime late February to my son and his wife, a new baby sister to Leo and Ziva. So a quilt is in construction for her with a cute hedgehog design
More on the sewing front I have a pattern being published later in the year, which I am not allowed to say more about, only that it's a sweet tote bag, my first bag design.
I have not signed up for any BOM's ( I normally do at least 2 a year) but instead plan to get my UFO's under control. I have two ready to quilt. The one below was pinned this week and is made from blocks collected in my swap group. I hope to get this quilted in the next few days / week.
I also have three other quilt tops completed ready to quilt so I will be busy getting those ticked off the list. (Fat quarter shop mystery BOM from 2013, girls day out also from 2013 and the row along quilt from 2014).
I have a massive pile of block swap blocks to assemble I to quilts, and a few other partly completed BOM's to finish off and in between all of this I plan to make a few little Tilda projects.
I look forward to seeing what everyone else is creating.
Happy 2015 everyone ....xx
