Officially the last day of the school holidays.  So tomorrow it is back to work and school for us all.
Here's a little taste of the things  I have been doing this weekend.

  • some quilting on my SSM6 item
  • more baking for school lunches - my favourite Afghan Slice, and spicy carrot muffins
  • I cooked Pork Belly for the first time using this recipe  - yum very tender and the crispiest crackling ever
  • some more sewing - a prototype napkin ring
  • a possible fabric pull for a Christmas table runner - does it matter that the fabrics aren't Christmas themed?.
Hope you have all had a fabulous weekend


  1. I love the fabrics you have put together for the Christmas runner. They look Christmassy to me, especially seen as we celebrate during the Summer times. I've been baking today for school lunches today too, Have a great week xo

  2. Love the napkin ring, really pretty.

  3. There's a sort of pohutukawa look-a-like in that group of xmas runner fabrics... it will look lovely & summery!

  4. the Christmas runner fabrics look great! I think it's all about perception :) Looks like a lovely weekend :)

  5. mmmm those baking items look like they could with a tester.....ME!! Yum!
    Your quilting look lovely and fresh.
