At last, I've finally made something...

A doll's quilt for my niece.
This was so much fun to make as it was really quick and easy.
I've managed to make two Christmas t-shirts for the boys.
And I whipped up a skirt for me - thanks to a good friend who forced me to to cut the pattern out. Once I had started it, it was easy to finish. Sometimes I need a little push, or rather, a great big shove!
I found this fabric at Spotlight in the quilting section. It's so pretty and it makes me feel pretty when I wear it.

Now I'm off to do some Christmas baking.
Hope you are all enjoying the festive season.

I love the skirt! Wraparound? Great job on the quilt and tshirts. Fantastic job, in fact.

On the side, I love your floor tiles. I will one day have a kitchen with black-and-white tiles! Super duper!

Have a grand Christmas! See you (so to speak) in the New Year!

What a lovely skirt, good thing your friend gave you this shove. You will enjoy the result this summer. Your niece will love you to bits because of the doll quilt!

You haven't made something, you've made heaps of things. And great things too. Especially love the skirt. Have fun wearing it.

Inspiration, sweetie!
The bag's out drying as I type, so now I just need to find some funky lining and a set of handles. And sew them up...
Hmmm. Should be ready by her birthday perhaps? Not Christmas any more! :-)

You have really been busy with some excellent projects, the skirt looks fantastic and I LOVE those christmas t-shirts! Hope you have a lovely time getting ready and celebrating Christmas with your family.

Wow! Lots of things! I love them all. Hope you have a great Christmas! (Your skirt is lovely. Such a pretty colour!)

I love the fabric you used in that doll quilt! Very pretty. And aren't you crafty with those shirts. ANNNNNND that skirt looks great. When I try to make a skirt it never works out and when I see a skirt made by someone I always think YES! I CAN DO THAT! and then I go out and buy yards of fabric and then I make a mess. So thanks a lot! now I'm suffering skirt envy and am completely depressed by my lack of skills! :O)
