another one!

just popped this one up on Simple Stitches too
I know it's a little early for Christmas, but hey...
you've got to start sometime!
and yes this one came about because of this one here
I loved that cute tree and bird, so decided that I would like to see more of him around...
and he might just appear in a couple of other things that are on the go here...

This last week has been quite a productive one for me, 
I have written 2 patterns, have a third on the go, 
stitching the next part on another one, 
with ideas for another 3!
just need time to actually get to the making stage

I've also popped up a couple of simple tutorials of ways that I find easiest to do my bindings and to 
mitre corners on a quilt/wall hanging...
click on the tabs at the top of the page...
(just need to add photos to the second one, as I can't find the ones I've already taken!)

Hope you have all had a really fantastic Australia Day...
I know that I have and managed to do quite a bit of what I love, stitching!

first off...
I hope that all of you girls that have been surrounded by fires are all safe and well!
Thank goodness that the weather has turned cooler (for some of us) and hopefully will for the rest soon...

next is the table runner I gave my sister for Christmas
and today I have spent a lazy day.....

all of my thoughts are with you,
