My New Pattern Book

I have been wanting to buy one of these sewing pattern books (Oh and a few bits of fabric for my stash.) for a long time from M is for Make.

I just couldn't decide which book to buy.

Ok, I don't know how to read Japanese but the pictures are so pretty.
The book has come with some instructions from Kate but there are step by step pictures in each step to sew the pattern together.

Is anyone else thinking of the movie 'The Ring'....

But such great patterns. All 20 of them. 
I think my sisters will want to get their hands on this when I venture home.

My blogging will now be limited from now until the beginning of the New Year. 
It's beginning to get busy with events and dinners and a birthday thrown in there for a bit more celebrating.
I am trying to get a bit of sewing in as well but I think I might be being a bit too optimistic.
Enjoy your week!

Fresh Sewing Day. November

Fresh Sewing Day

Look's like it's  Fresh Sewing Day again.  And once again I'm linking up with you all at Lily's Quilts and look forward to seeing what everyone else had got up to for the month.
Well seeing that I missed last months, I can put all of Octobers into this months photos.
(Is that aloud?)
So here it is!

My first few photos I believe you all out there are in love with the new line of fabric from Lotta Jansdotter, Echo. 
Material was bought Sunday.
Fabric arrived Thursday.
Cut up on Saturday and quilt top finished on Sunday.
(Lucky I finished off the quilt top so I have something else to show.)

My next  photos are of my three sets of placemats that I am STILL making.
I used the Cut Out and Keep fabric and some natural linen.  Very easy to make and found the pattern on Handmadebyalissa .  The scraps were used to make up some coasters to go with each set. 
All sets have been quilted and now is the task of binding each set.....I've put this on the long finger at the moment.
Now my last row of photos are of my FMQ that I  did each Friday with Cindy at Fluffy Sheep Quilting.  I really enjoyed linking up each week to this but all good things come to an end.  
I have decided thought that I'm  going to join up to two other FMQ groups to keep practising.

 Another month gone. 
And what will December bring?
