Image result for CLIPART LOVE MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND
Finally.....Good morning and hello. Our internet and phones have been out of action for ages now, so there's been no blogging for ages. I'm sorry for not replying to comments, Christmas wishes etc, and I have just found my mountain of emails (all asking where have I been). The computer I usually do my blogging on has decided not to turn back on and this computer doesn't have all my super fonts on it. Whaa whaa.

Good news is......I'm on holidays and I've whipped my sewing room to death already. I have promised to make good use of these holidays, in the way of getting winter stock ready for next year's markets. I have made so many 2 year old boy sweaters already and I'm heaps happy with myself. Heather and I were swamped last year at the markets and constant requests for knitted boy sweaters. Well we're onto it. 

My latest creation is this cute little mug rug to sell at the tourist centre. I have done a little bit of stitching, used the last of some very pretty fabric that I have loved and stitched a little circle for the bottom of the cup. I'm onto the next mug rug now.

This is the next one
I couldn't help myself......I made some cute little headbands for newborns. Click here for the pattern. 
Now gals, don't clag it, but I've done some crocheting as well!!! Eekkk! lol I have noticed the rage of clothing with crocheted bodice and fabric skirt. I think it's groovy and very cute on little girls. If you hack around on the net you will find heaps of free patterns. 

There is no pattern for this one though, I kinda made it up as I went. I will have to go back and write it down.lol
Meanwhile.....back in the sewing shed....some little beaded dolls are in the making. As soon as I finished blogging I'm racing out there to sew for a while. We're expecting 42 C today and we'll get it. lol

A beautiful gift from Heather the feather. My heart skipped beats when I unwrapped this Christmas gift. Heather joined us for Christmas lunch and was full of cheek and comments...but see how friendship balances? Cheek in one hand, a beautiful plate in another. lol
Well gals, I'm off to get a good start on some sewing before we boil here. I'm hoping for a fantastic New Year and I wish that for you all as well. 
Buon anno! Happy New Year
Ciao, Anita.

You sure have jumped into the creating part of your holidays with both feet. And well done, too. Love the idea of the little crocheted bodice for the dresses. That is very sweet. And lovely mug rugs, too.
It looks like we are all going to be very hot for quite a while now. Do your best to stay cool.

Wishing you a happy new year. I don"t always leave a comment, but Instop by frequently to see what you've been up to. I'm a stuffy old bird of a grammy (not cranky), but your posts make me smile. All the best in 2016!
