Trixie Zip Pouches

I really should finish this quilt. 

but I am not ready to commit all that time into 

basting, quilting and binding in the lead up to 


So I decided I wanted to make some 

Trixie Zipper Pouches.

pattern available here, if you want to make one or 

two or twenty of your own!

This fabric was gifted to me. It is gorgeous!

It takes more time to choose fabric, trim and quilt 

the fabric than it does to construct them.

The last one took me a little over an hour to make!

And that's doing some final hand stitching inside 

rather than forcing ten+ layers of fabric 

through the machine and risking all sorts of mishaps!

I stopped, for the moment, at four!

Mr PnP went for a little road trip as soon as work 


The silos north of Benalla had been on my 'must-see' 

list for some time.

This beautiful painting (below) is in a church.

 in the town of Goorambat.

This one dedicated to those who have fought in wars.

And this one in honour of GJ Coles, the founder of 

Coles stores here in Australia.

And this Christmas tree is tucked away in an alley in 


And one last thing...

a couple of Christmas decorations made using a free 
tutorial from here!

They are by Amy at NanaCompany!

(thanks Debbie for pointing out the wrong link- all fixed now!)

I hope to be back with that one quilt finish before 
2019 is over.
Until then, Happy Christmas from my house to yours.

Finding time...

in a busy schedule to craft! 

"Crafting can help those who suffer from anxiety, depression or chronic pain, experts say. It may also ease stress, increase happiness and protect the brain from damage caused by aging."

                 So I'm trying to find the time to...

sew and knit for Barbie,

 knit socks!

make a little bag for gift giving.

I won an Instagram giveaway for this sweet pin.. 

and I'm making plans for this cute puppy fabric.

The Liberty book was the only sewing book on offer 

in the raffle at our Christmas luncheon!

So, of course, I snapped it up!

Happy days!
