Roboticus giftus

That's latin for a robot gift.

If you haven't been onto etsy, firstly you are banned from the internets.  Secondly, if you are even remotely crafty you have to love the cross-stitch designs of andwabisabi.

This is a handmade gift (as this is handmade gift year) for a friend in the UK who unsurprisingly, loves robots.  She also has a cat called Rebus.  Clearly very good stock.

Buying moda charm packs in Australia

I love moda charm packs.  Yes, for the traditionalist it can be the lazy way to quilt, but seriously I don't have the financial backing to buy enough of a stash to ever have anything that matches.

But moda charm packs are always so well priced in the US....but expensive here.  Until I stumbled across this gem of a shop!

Want it, need it, quilt store  

I bought three charms packs and express registered post for $40!  EPIC WIN!

Christmas presents...and future procrastination maybe later....

Burp cloths from a made by rae tutorial

5" blocks from a layer cake
The finished product :)

Well it's been a busy sewing time around here...but the problem with schneaky projects as gifts is that you can't write about them....

But following a dear friends baby shower, I gave her a stack of burp cloths from this made by rae tutorial which is super easy and just great to not think about things like absorbency....I defer to people who already have little people in this regard completely.  

Totally recommended as a baby shower gift :)
