We tweaked it a little (ie can Never follow a pattern to its end, so we wing it!)
Scales much much bigger than pattern states, cos I don't have teeny tiny fingers to be able to turn such pieces inside out - who does??)
I am actually shocked, yes shocked that the inner piece, when finally sewn together, does produce this 3d shape.
I have no clue when it comes to 3d patterns - that's the best reason why I stick with quilting!!
A tradition much loved and asked for is the building of a gingerbread house!
Totally too much sugar!
Totally wrong hemispheric inference of snow topped roofs!!
But we don't care! We all get a side to do:
DD2 long thought over picture - I rather like the sleeting of snow look amid the giant butterflies. The 'less is more' approach is really a good thing!
DD1's side - clever bird feathers and shutters and window boxes:
The completed business: Love the little map of Australia to the side - not posed I promise!!
A very merry Christmas day to everyone out there - thanks for reading and watching and caring about me and the silly stuff I make - my heart goes out to you and yours and hope that you feel and know and give Love, the best way you can!
I have a little hole in my heart this Christmas - my darling girl Sabrina was put to sleep on Monday. She was 16 1/2 years old!! - a fantastic Abyssinian cat with not a mean bone in her body, who loved a cuddle and a head rub more than anything else in the world. I loved her very much. She will be greatly missed.
