A make a month ♥ November 2012

Happy December
Gosh the month of merry making is now upon us
I'm feeling excited, if little daunted by my ever-growing 'to do' list
how about you?
are your lists behaving?

The reason for me being here today is to show you my 
'Make a month' for November
I actually have THREE (OoOoOohh)
 (I could even, sneakily, stretch that to four)

Want to see?

Liberty covered boxes

with pretty bows

containing matching Liberty hankies
which I posted about here

..... bless you
two more Christmas gifts

you've seen this one before, I know
sorry for recycling
but this is another make this month

Three pockets have now excitedly been emptied!
by two very happy and very cute little girls

Last but not least
new curtains for my sewing room ..... finally

they have been laying, unfinished and ignored for weeks months
I have been putting them off
but, actually, they really weren’t that bad
and I totally adore the Vanessa Arbuthnott fabric
such pretty colours

Btw .....
I am in LVE
and I don't care who knows it
with who? ..... I hear you ask

with Purdey

we are head-over-heals
she is more than I even dreamed of
I feel like a very lucky girl indeed
I compare her to a Ferrari of the sewing machine world

It has been a whirlwind weekend
really busy and lovely
some photos to come soon
lacking energy today though
need more coffee

Thank you for stopping by
it's always so wonderful to have you visit
Wishing you a fabulous list-ticking-off kind of a week

I'm getting Purdey withdrawals
sorry must go.

BIG love

  10. Beautiful makes there Jooles, I think I am falling more and more in love with Liberty prints, just wish they weren't so expensive! :)

  11. Hi sweet Jooles, I am sorry I haven't visited you in so long. I am happy to find you again! Your covered boxes are so pretty! I love your beautiful curtains! The ruffle on the bottom is fantastic.... and that pink chair!!! The wall hanging is beautiful! I can see why Mia and Sophia are happy! I am thrilled you have a new sewing machine! I have a Bernina too, but it is a few years old. Your model looks fabulous! Have fun sewing sweetie! Much love, Paula

  12. My to do list is out of control. Seriously. I need double the hours in each day I think.

    Your liberty covered boxes are gorgeous - how utterly lovely. And they can be used for all sorts of other bits and bobs too. Glad you and Purdey are getting along well. Those curtains are lush, but that pink velvet chair!!! Be still my beating heart... xx

  13. Oh my goodness! You have been busy! And what super-duper makes!!!
    My to-do list is getting longer and longer too. I need to get on to it pretty quick! Good luck with yours.....

  14. Good to hear from you- and I LOVE your makes! Pretty pretty covered boxes! I love to cover boxes, and seeing yours made me realize it's been a very long time since I've done one.
    Loving on your curtains too- I just got some new kitchen curtains sewn up myself and kept asking why it took me so long to get to it!
    Happy sewing with purdey! :)
