We have had the fire lit off and on a bit over the past few weeks as the autumn nights begin to get a bit chilly and the house begins to take on that cosy feel that we are so familiar with throughout the cold period that we endure here in Tasmania. I couldn't resist taking some shots of our front entrance with the nightly glow.
As you can see my home has lots of handmade quilts and stitcheries as well as dolls and cushions.
My new studio and teaching room leads off the entrance and it's door is adorned with a gorgeous stitchery wall hanging.
Made for me by my sweet friend Jo.
The room has lots of shelves which hold all of my supplies, gifts and pretties.
Just gazing at some of the gifts given to me by friends makes me all warm and fuzzy. I love having them on display.
They remind me of the gift giver constantly and I love having them around.
You know that a handmade gift given to you has taken the giver much time and has been made with lot's of love and that is why I cherish them. Do you love to give handmade too?
I find all different sorts of ways to display my pretties. This little bag was made by Dawn and given to me last christmas. Isn't it sweet?
And this gorgeous wall hanging was given to me just this week by Jenny for my Birthday - I love it !!
I have been very busy cutting fabric every night for the past few weeks. I have a stand at the Launceston Quilt & Craft Fair next week - Maybe I'll see you there?
Love and Hugs,
