Hi everyone,

As you can see I am back from my short holiday, and have begun my next project - a pair of pillowcases for D3. The quilt will be a Christmas present, as I only have 3 days to finish the pillow cases (I will have to pack some sewing in over the next couple of days) I have cut the patches out, now I only need to sew them together.

Didn't have the opportunity to take many photos during my small
break, so there are no photos of that, but I did do a little shopping while in WA. Found a lovely little shop in Midlands, and brought some panels to make 3 rag books, 1 Hoppy the Kangaroo and 2 Paddington Bear panels, for 3 of the daughters (3y, 8m & 6m)

and also a panel (Three little Kittens) from Beatrix Potter's range for D5(17y) [her choice]

I also got a couple of doggy bags of some very bright, kid material scraps - I think they are gorgeous, and suit the personality of miss3 perfectly, now I just need to find where I can get some larger pieces of the more interesting pieces.
