Lots to Show and Tell Part 1

I cannot believe that it has been over a month since my last post. Where has the time gone???? I have been busy though.

I made a skinny verna tablerunner for my kitchen dresser. I got this pattern from the Moda Bakeshop Website and it is sooo each to make. This was my first attempt at sewing the binding on completely by machine and I think there is some room for improvement but overall I am really happy with it.

Some friends of ours from Adelaide had a baby girl last week so I whipped up this cute bag from fabrics in my stash. I got the pattern from a Quilts & More magazine. Very each to make.
I also have finished the first two blocks of my Gardeners Journal quilt.

I also decided to rearrange my sewing area as I was sick of having no room and just one big mess everywhere. This area is located at one end of our main lounge room. As we also have a TV room where the kids always watch TV I have claimed this room for myself. At the other end of the room are two lounges and the TV. I can close this room off from the rest of the house which is lovely and quiet and warm and cosy in winter.

I tidied everything up and added another tressle table to use as my cutting table.

Please check out my next post to see what else I have been up to.
Chat Soon

Love all your recent projects....and now look at your beautiful sewing area. My daughter and I cleaned up the house over the long weekend too. The bin is full again and our house isn't finished being de-cluttered...

WOW. your sewing area looks like it will be more productive now, you just need wheels on your chair to slide across to the cutting area quicker and you are set!
Love your dresser, it is just beautiful!
The table runner looks fantastic, your quited lines have come out very well!
Gardners Journal looks fantastic, gorgeous fabrics.
The bag for the new baby is very sweet, I think you made the right decision here on what to make, bags are always needed, especially with babies!

i can sooooo relate to the concept of 'where does the time go??'
Im taking inspiration from you Kylie, my sewing room has too much
'stuff' going in, but at the moment, nothing much coming out! Time for a 'prune'!!!
Love all that you've done....fabulous, as usual!
XX sugary hugs
