This morning I baked my Christmas cookies, my favourites...the gingerbreads!
I love the smell in the house while you are baking them, I love to cut them in different shapes and...I love to eat them... :O)
It's not really Christmas time for me until I bake them...
So...now...Merry Christmas to all my friends!!!!

Hi to all!
Few days ago my colleague asked me to make them some things that she would like to give away as Chrsitmas Gifts...
She saw my Eco Heart Collapsible Bags and asked me 3 of them...
One was the Sheeps one as you can see in my shop.
Then she told me that she has a friend that love, love, love the green color and so...I made the one you can see in the first collage.
Then, she needs another for a friend that loves sunflower and so...here it is:
Finally...she tolds me that she needs something really cute for a young girl, a lip balm holder that is soooo girly...
So...I made this:

This morning for breakfast...I cooked pancakes!!!!
Well...I have to say that when I see them in American movies...well...I would like to be there because I know that they are sooo yummy and...I love Maple Syrup!
So...when a friend of mines sent me the recipe some days ago...I immediately decided that I would love to try them!A
And so...as this morning both me and hubby had more free time for enjoy them...here they are!

As you can see, the whole bag collapses into it's case...
and...voilà!here we have the bag opened and as you can see, it's a really big size so you can use it as a grocery bag, fill it with books and use it for the library, go with it to the gym or the park...the possibilities are endless!!!!You can find more in my Etsy Shop!
Hope you like them!!!
Have a great Saturday!!!!

As you can see, the mannequins still need the support...mine is still in the garage...hubby is working on it...he cut it on the wood, glue it and now he's waiting that the flatting will dry...
Hopefully it will be ready in a couple of days so I'll post another pic of the finished mannequin!
The week end was really soooo nice: we chatted so much, laughed and...sewed a lot!
Sunday morning we also had a little disappointing thing...my iron, the one I only use for my sewing and crafting...stopped to work...
So...we were in the middle of our mannequins without an iron...GRRRRRR!!!
Outside the weather was so cold and it rained a lot, we brought Luciana's car and we had a LONG tour...VISITING all the super markets here around for find a new iron...
After more than an hour of this "fabulous" tour...we found it and so...we come back home to sew...LOL!!!
I can't wait for our next "meeting".
Chatting together, we noticed that we both have tons of fabrics scraps, I have a box that I can't close in any way and every day...I add some piece of fabrics...
So...we decided that our next project surely will be sewing something with all our scraps...
She spoke me about the Brown Bag Quilts and I loved the idea immediately...
If you never heard about Brown Bag Quilts (like me before she explained me it...) it means that you put all your scraps in brown bags (like those you find at the grocery store), you can divide your scraps by color or simply by "tone":light, medium and dark fabrics and then put them in different bags.
When you'll start your project, you don't have to choose every fabric, if you need a medium one, you put your hand in the bag and bring a medium fabric, then you do the same for the light and dark and you use what you got from the bag...
In this way you'll can end with...a very beautiful quilt but...why not...also a very ugly one...LOL!!!
But...this is the most interesting and very fun part of this "method"...it's not up to you...
What do you think of it?
Did you ever tried it?
You can apply it not only for quilts but also for scrap booking and any craft...
So...now...I'll looking forward to try it with my friend!!!!

Yesterday here in Italy was a National Holiday...
Usually every year this holiday means BBQ with friends and/or family in the yard or on the mountain...
This year unfortunalt weather was not good at all...the day before rained all day long and temperatures fell down...We got up yesterday morning with a very cloudy and dark sky...
So, hubby and I decided to spend our day visitin a beautiful Castle situated in a small town at about 25 km from here, Racconigi Castle.
When we arrived there, the sky was still grey and we got some drop of rain...it was a pity as the Castle has a great and wonderful park all around...
Later...the sun will return and so we visited both the park and the Castle.

I started a new wall quilt some months ago and since this morning...it was an UFO left alone on a chair on my sewing room...
I started it thinking that I'd need something new to hang on my fireplace but...as sometimes happens...I start a new project with a lot of enthusiasm and then...I've lost this enthusiasm...on the road...
I started a gazillion of other projects after this...sky over my head is...full of UFO's...LOL!!!!
But this morning...I got up with a renewed enthusiasm, I took my centre medallion and...I start to sew the zig zag around the appliquè!
I worked on it for about 2 hours and I have to say that...I'm happy with the result...
Actually...I've made also some blocks, this will be a wallhanging with autumn colors theme...
In the next days, I'll go ahead working on this project and...please, follow here if you would like to see the final result...
If you would like to post a comment here...you're very welcome...if I know that someone is following my WIP...I surely can't not finish it!!!! LOL!!!!
