I have excitedly received my first on-line fabric purchase
from stitch bird the other day.
They have a beautiful selection of gorgeous goodies that are often
hard to source in smaller locations. It only took 2 days to get here!
Which is amazing as it's holiday season, and I received
free-bee scraps of other scrummy fabrics as a bonus!

I hope the holiday season is treating you all well.
I'm in hibernation mode with 3 weeks left before I
hatch (I hope!) so Anya has been hanging with Mum
and yesterday she learnt to sew with the sewing machine.
It was a neat time together
(after she got used to the pedal and stopped nearly running
over her Mothers fingers!)
She is over the moon, and today she has made her own softy pattern
which we have sewn up and is being stuffed as we speak!
We've also had fun making these neat little birds
from a pattern I found on spool which you can download in PDF.
Yes that is the mess which is my sewing room!
currently in total disarray waiting for
the big move into my garden sanctuary.

OMG look at Anya - she looks a heap like Feeona (Fiona) from The Secret of Roan Inish in that last photo! I hadn't realised her hair was SOOO long! Tee hee. Ooooo I can't wait till your into your new garden studio too. I loved that last photo of you in your garden. Maybe we should come and see you before you hatch. How about this week? I'll give you a ring!!
