I’m back to show you a picture of my current project that has just come out in Homespun magazine Volume 13.7. It is the Christmas in July Issue that is packed full of some great projects for Christmas, with a really cute wallhanging from Anni Downs of Hatched & Patched and an angel from Natalie Bird of The Birdhouse to name just a few.
My project is a cushion called “Wishes Do Come True” that has an envelope opening on the front to pop in a letter for Santa. I have also made a quilt that coordinates with it called “Gingerbread Kisses” and there is a giveaway of patterns in the magazine, so why not try your luck at winning one.
The pattern retails for $22 and shops can run the quilt as a block of the month over 3 months if they wish.
Patterns are available at The Quilters’ Patch, The Patchwork Angel & Blue Willow Cottage. Check with your local patchwork shop if you wish to purchase one and they can order one in for you from me.
I think it would look great also done in traditional Christmas colours of dark red, green, mustard & gingerbread colours.
All this talking of gingerbread now makes me want a nice hot cuppa and some gingerbread – YUM!!!
I hope you like my new project. It will be on display on the Blue Willow Cottage stand at the Craft & Quilt Fair in Melbourne in 2 weeks, pop by to see it up close and you may even see me helping out on the stand so don’t be afraid to say “Hi”.
My cuppa is beckoning me, alas no gingerbread – chocolate will have to do!!!
