Almost Christmas – almost Solstice, Hanukkah has begun – the season of celebration is upon us. I love the elving that has been going on at Soulemama’s place, and we have been some of our too. The making of goodies is a fun and special time, we have been sewing up decorations for our tree and special little somethings to add to everyone’s gift pile. Today we are busy bees, stocking up at the markets with yummies for the table, wrapping gifts to put under the tree, playing with cousins, baking more shortbread and just generally having a holiday time.
Don’t forget about Whip Up Mini Quilts book - perfect for gift giving for beginner and more advanced quilters and sewists. Whip Up Mini Quilts : archives to mini quilt month here where you can learn about the book contributors, get patterns and tutorials and lots of lovely mini quilty things.
Another wonderful last minute gift is the whipup calendar – full of excellent contributors and great crafty images, find out more here (only $5).

I was sent some wall decals to test and use from Pop and lolli – they are super colourful and fun and easy to apply and remove – great last minute gifts + With every set of “experience-design” decals you purchase, ‘Its chic to change’ will provide educational materials and resources to positively influence a South African child in need.
Ok so get making…
