I love the start of a new year - there is such a buzz about what will come through the year and all the great plans you have to achieve. Holidays also mean a bit of sewing just for me and for fun! With both my girls home I know that "work" style sewing and creating is set aside for a while while I enjoy some time with my girls.
One of the projects I have been working on is my Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap Project. I broke out my Cotton and Steel stash that had just been waiting for just the right project and my Black and White Text and Low volume fabrics. I used our Kaleidescope Foundation Paper Pieced Cushion pattern and have made a Mini Quilt version. This is heading off overseas soon for my swap partner.
I am a lucky girl - look at this beautiful new range Milk Flower & Sugar by Elea Lutz that Millhouse Collections sent me to play with. This range will be available here in Aus in February and I can't wait to cutting, creating and sewing with these beautiful fabrics. The bunny print is just adorable and I love the colours.
As any quilter will know washing and looking after your quilts is very important to their care. Millhouse Collections now have the Soak range available and if you have not used them before for your quilts then I highly recommend them. The "Flatter is great while ironing and pressing your seams and your quilts will never have smelled so beautiful after washing them after using "Soak Wash".
Another fun project I can't wait to get stuck into is this "Frances" dress. I have not strayed too far form the pattern picture choosing Chambray and a Red Liberty print myself to make this.
