Owl, stockings and stash...Oh my!

This is going to be a really quick post because I have to go pack!

Tomorrow I am going away with a few friends for a week to celebrate the end of our school lives, a new beginning and all the memories and times we have shared together. However, because of exams we have left quite a bit of the organising to the last minute so this week had been an absolute blur!

So if you left a comment and I haven't replied to you, I am really sorry for being so rude! I always intended to reply to you and still do! It has just been really hectic this week and I have hardly read any blogs (which is shocking as I usually read them while having breakfast!) ah well, keeping it real I guess.

Anyway, so before I run off to pack I thought I would run through what I have been up to over the past 2 weeks (has it really been that long?)

If you read my Stash Manicure post you may have seen this already....A Scrappy owl made from mostly just dreamy Scraps!  I made it up as I went along and I am really happy with how it turned out, she even has a tail! 

I would love to post a tutorial up for her but I realised the other day, that I have no idea how to make the pattern pieces/templates available?
If anyone is able to help/ has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated as I am not very Computer/ Tech savvy.

 While I was cleaning out school books, folders and the mountain of paper and notes one collects over the year, I decided to reorganise my sewing area. So my very small stash is now colour coordinated into Blues, purples, pinks and pinky/reds, bright fabric, brown and blacks, Christmas and pre-cuts/ to be quilts. It is so much easier to see what I have now and it makes me happy to see them all organised and pretty.

Lastly, We are running a Christmas Stocking Swap at the Melbourne Modern Quilt guild so here is a sneak peek of the stocking I made yesterday. I think it turned out really well! I am going to have a hard time parting with it!

Anyway, off to pack now....
Hope you have a lovely weekend and next week,
I'll be back soon!
