Prep

It's crazy Christmas build-up time for many.  Busy at work, busy at home and a few finishes too.  I completed the Little Joys quilt- from the Fat Quarter Shop quilt-along and using Elea Lutz Little Joys prints for Penny Rose fabrics.  I am using this as a throw or cover for children's seasonal activities at work so it didn't need quilting. Instead I added Prairie points following Penny Layman's great tutorial.  


I've been despatching patterns, fabrics and books and with the proceeds I bought a Bernina walking foot which comes with three bases: here's the edge stitcher in action.  It is a beautiful thing!   I was fortunate to find it on offer a couple of weeks ago but there's no denying it is an investment.


I've continued to make felt goodies from Pipsqueaks by Sally Dixon.  I made a couple of tiny elephants and some kitties and have promptly lost the photos I took before they were wrapped and popped in the post.  The dachshund is a brooch.


And this tiny pup from the same book is a mini hanging decoration.  It took just over an episode of Fargo to make.
