Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle and it's mine all mine!!!!


I'm a 'winner winner chicken dinner' thanks to the Delicious Annie the Felt Fairy's great Giveaway and my prize was this fabulous book.  When I flicked through I squealed with delight, all the pages are jammed full of 'must do' projects.  Here are some of my favourites:
This bag is gorgeous, the red ticking shows it off fabulously, the red velvet ribbon addition is genius!
I'm definitely going to make a navy one of these for my daughter to wear to school, it would really suit her!  Tres Chic!
I had to slip in a bird project somewhere!
Gorgeous throw made with lovely cottons and velvet.  It would be lovely to snuggle under watching all the Christmas TV!
Jolly apples to hang on the Christmas Tree.
Cute poncho for little girls (and a project for older ones too).
You could make these super Babushka Dolls with really Christmassy print fabric.  At least this print gives them year round life.
I'm in love with red ticking, thanks to this book.  This cute gift tote is so simple but the fabric makes it so fresh!

I hope you enjoyed a little flick through of my new book, my only grumble is under You Will Need, for the projects it just says 'material', you have to work it out for yourself from the pattern.  I know it's not rocket science, but it would be kind of nice to have it all worked out.

Now I'm off to buy some fabric (lucky me) for a quilt project I have in mind from this book.  101 Fabulous Rotary Cut Quilts.
This Double Irish Chain I'm hoping to make in white, pink and red for my Mother In Law.
And this heavenly Split Rail Fence for my Husband, which will end up being used by the children no doubt.

Thank you for sharing the joy of my Giveaway win (thanks Annie) and showing off my planned projects.
