I love prim and prairie items....I whipped up this apron and sun bonnet just to hang on my bakers stand. Love how they turned out and I made the crow pie too. I made one previously for ebay but hadnt gotten around to making one for myself, Im glad I did now.

Ive been busy finishing off some Christmas presents. I love the nurse I have made for a friend, I think she turned out lovely. I was stumped for something original so eventually made up three of the card holders, they will come in handy and can be used all year. The crows and the pot and I made for me, it has been awhile since I made something for myself..

I may even leave it up longer this year, I have a bad habit of pulling the tree down on boxing day because I am sick of looking at it and falling over it, Ill have to learn to be patient. I would love to see pic's of other peoples trees and their creations........

I have been out of action motivation wise for awhile now....I have managed to sew a few things when I made myself. I have so many things I want to make and so little time (and inclination), not long until Christmas and I would love to make some gifts...I am up to my last block on my quilt and then need to make it all up. That bit scares me!!!! Here are a couple of things I recently made from patterns I adapted from the latest Homespun.
Remembrance Day - 11 November - is set aside as a day to remember the sacrifice of those who have died for Australia in wars and conflicts. It was originally known as Armistice Day.
At 11 am on 11 November 1918 the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years continuous warfare. The allied armies had driven the German invaders back, having inflicted heavy defeats upon them over the preceding four months. In November the Germans called for an armistice (suspension of fighting) in order to secure a peace settlement. They accepted the allied terms of unconditional surrender.
The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month attained a special significance in the post-war years. The moment when hostilities ceased on the Western Front became universally associated with the remembrance of those who had died in the war. This first modern world conflict had brought about the mobilisation of over 70 million people and left between 9 and 13 million dead, perhaps as many as one-third of them with no known grave. The allied nations chose this day and time for the commemoration of their war dead.
We will remember them.....................

Here is a doll for a "storybook Character" swap we are having in one one of my yahoo groups. Meet Alice and the Cheshire Cat....I am really enjoying drawing out a pattern and then painting all the details on .....what do you think?
Here are a couple of new additions to my "family". I'm slowly getting motivated again, though I am three blocks behind in my BOM.......I must get started on those. My imagination has been working overtime lately so needed to get these ideas out....

I haven't posted in awhile, sorry about that. The weather has been so cold it is hard to get motivated to do anything. I have a few things on the go at the moment just need to finish them off. I have been making a lot of Halloween things although we don't celebrate it here in Oz. I still love Halloween.....
