Christmas Sewing

I had ordered a bundle of basics and some Christmas fabrics to make some pretty dolly Dresses for the shop and for my Girls. Then I realised that I had actually ordered too late and chances were that they wouldn't arrive in time for me to make them up and sell ship etc before Christmas. I had a discount code to use at the Fat Quarter Shop so it was coming from O/S I was a bit disappointed in my lack of foresight but took it on as a lesson learned and wound down my shop sewing in order to do my other things and prepare for Christmas. I even put my machine away and started to use my sewing table as a painting space!

I still wanted to make new dresses for our little Blythe family of 5 so ordered some of Natalies new woodland range from Sarah at Quilt Fabric Delights. Keeping it all local this time. Well Local to Australia that is. I started cutting the dresses last night and have some other colours in transit too. Its so whimsically cute and lends itself well to a Christmas theme.

Then on my way out to drop the kids at School this morning I notice our mail box was stuffed extraordinarily full for Early on Monday morning, I opened it up to find my FQS package squished in there and suspect it was there all weekend long!

I'm not sure if I have ever mentioned that Orange is quite probably my favourite colour, but would you believe till now I did not have any Orange fabric! I was quite stunned by that realisation when trying to find some recently!

Now that I am in holiday and home sewing mode not sure if I will swing back to shop sewing before the new year. I have posted a great discount code on my Facebook fan page for the shop as a Thank You and Merry Christmas so if you have been admiring anything now would be the time to grab a great bargain. I really appreciate the support I am offered through the lovely community!. xx The shop will be stocked again from mid to late Jan if all goes according to plan :)


  1. The colours of the fabrics are fabulous Tammy ... full of Christmas cheer! M

  2. Oh my! Look at all that lucious fabric. Beautiful!!!
    Orange isn't my favourite colour ... but it certainly is up there.
    Happy sewing.


Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me know you were here. x
Have a happy Day.
