This Weekend

This weekend was probably our last free weekend before the "silly season" starts so I made the most of it and ticked a few things off my to do list.

First up, some more vinyl project bags. I had cut these out last weekend so it was just a matter of sitting at the sewing machine and sewing the afternoon away. I love this easy design, I watched this video by Calico. These are quite addictive! 

I also made our Christmas cake:

Now all wrapped up and hidden away until I ice it the week of Christmas with brandy icing.  I was so tempted to cut a piece off!! I'm the only one that eats Christmas cake at our house so it will be shared with my parents and a friend.

Kath gifted this lovely With Thy Needle pattern to me last Christmas and I've finally made a small start for this week's #santasundayxs,  the fabric is Weeks Dye Works 36ct Twilight linen.

Lastly, I'm a big fan of Jane Harper, an Australian author, and this is her latest book.  This kept me guessing right until the end, and I couldn't put it down. I think this is my favourite of her books so far.

See you soon xx

That cake looks delicious!

Great project bags, I really should make some as I tend to just stuff mine into plastic bags. That is a really pretty Christmas design, I like the darker fabric to make it stand out. x
