Jealous of Sophie ;)

Happy Monday! Today is my son's first full day at nursery school so I'm feeling slightly lost and hoping he's having lots of fun!

To distract myself I've been blog surfing!!

I'd like to introduce you all to my lovely friend Sophie over at Dwelling On A Dime, she's recently moved to the US, has AMAZING taste, and a great eye for interiors!

Please check out her blog and if it's your kind of thing (or your just jealous of her wonderful style) please follow her so you can see what she does next! It's really well written, very witty and she would appreciate some love and support :) I know Sophie from Primary school and can't praise her enough - she encouraged me to start my blog and I am so grateful!

I'm linking up to Making Christmas at Rainbow Hare Quilts!

So here's my list of presents to make for Christmas and I haven't started any of them yet (gulp!!):

1) A purple quilt - I'm following the Drunkard's Path Quilt Along:

2) A purple and turquoise quilt - this will be the palette for my Dead Simple Quilt Along (pictures and more on that soon!)
3) A baby quilt for my friend's son
4) A red Christmas dress for the little girl!

5) At least two stuffed toys
6) 2 pouches
7) Oven gloves
8) and maybe a quilt for me! :)


  1. rock on! I'll head over and check her out :D

    i like your purples for the DPQA, look forward to seeing some progress!

  2. You're going to busy! I can't wait to see it all coming together. Thank you for linking up :)

  3. Thanks for the link up Lucy! xx

  4. Turquoise and purple? Yummy! Can't wait to see how all your projects progress! Heading over to Sophie's blog, that cute side table sucked me in ;)

  5. As a mum, you are never short of stuff to do, so why not be ambitious and give yourself tons of extra makes to accomplish in about 10 weeks?

    I look forward to seeing the results- perhaps after Christmas if you think the recipients will be peeking?

  6. Hi - just discovered your blog and became a follower. I'm going to hop on over to your friend's blog now and check it out.

  7. Oooh Lucy a Christmas dress. Hmmm, maybe I should think about doing that too! Will check out Sophies blog I promise. xoxo
