Well I can definitely hear Santa's bells now, and I know we are all busy making preparations.

My family usually head to the beach for an extended stay in our van and whilst I love the walks, surfing, drinks at the relaxed pub etc, I still find time to sew. It's always rather less organised than at home but I still fit it in!

I like to take a new little project, often just a pack of small fabric cuts (more manageable if it's windy!!), and some papers, maybe a new shape to inspire me, the basic Paper Piecing tools, and I set about to just piece a section which may later become a bag front etc.This way my project is compact, do-able, there's no reading of instructions to get the head around, and I can take it anywhere, even to the fishing spot that my son drags me to!

So to help you plan your holiday, take-anywhere sewing project, I have just the thing on offer today.........
Mini LED light offer......$12 each
If you plan to sew out and about you will love one of these little Triumph LED lights.
Simply clip them onto your swimmers or bra middle, onto your cap or hat bream, side of the chair, tent side, anywhere really and you'll have fantastic light even in the pitch dark!. Sew at the campsite at happy hour with this gadget.
It wil also stand on a table if you're not roughing it too much!
I use mine ALL the time and love it. 
They have a row of 6 LED lights, a dimmer switch, and take 3 x AAA batteries.

Lucy Boston Block 2

Wow I had no idea my first Lucy Boston Block would be so popular. There are ladies all over Australia on board for this lovely paper piecing ride, to create the lovely quilt in likeness to Lucy Boston's quilt of the early 1900's.

Some have pieced their first block, and so are ready to see Block 'tis...
Kit 1.... fabric and papers to make this block for only $12, and if you buy this item individually at the checkout you'll get FREE SHIPPING (type in coupon code Block 2)

Kit 2.....fabric, papers, and cutting template to make this block for only $17 and if you buy this item individually at the checkout you'll get FREE SHIPPING (type in coupon code Block 2)
Over the coming months, I will be adding to the collection of these blocks using the lovely Community fabrics, and other similar reproduction ones, to add variety.  Along the way,there will be a finishing kit, so you can build your lovely blocks into a small quilt.
If you get hooked and want to make sure you don't miss out on any of the blocks, just give me a call or email me and I'll make sure one is reserved for you each time.

If you missed out on Block One, there are still a couple left.
Well that's all for now..... You'll be busy too with all your Christmas and Holiday plans.
Happy Sewing
