I have been having a great time, sewing and learning new things.
Made a couple of dresses for our adore GD, thy will be coming to spend Christmas with us, can't wait to see them.
I went to a fantastic couple of workshops with Gloria Loughman, what a fantastic teacher and lovely person she is , you can see her work in here the workshops I took were Layer by Layer and Flying Free, I will put some photos of what we did some other time.
On Thursday I was invite to a Coffee Morning with Pam Holland, her work is really amazing,it was a pleasure to meet her, maybe one day I will be able to take a workshop with her, her sister lives in Dubai so she comes quite often to visit , this time she was on holidays and not teaching so we were very lucky to be able to meet her and see some of her fantastic work, there was some door prices and I was lucky to win some lovely batiks fabrics.
All in all my life in here is pretty interesting, been able to see, meet and learn from all this lovely people is fantastic ,I never had the chance before.
I am going now, to go and have a walk in blog land to see what you all talented ladies have been doing.

SewHappy Christmas SAL Finished

Here I am again, I have been meaning to write this post for a week now, I really don't know where my time goes (bg)plus the fact that I have a new computer (MAC) and I am finding working things out on it a bit difficult, I am not computer savi (BG)
I have finished a few things one of them is the Christmas Garland form the SewHappy Christmas SAl.
I took it to the show and tell at our Guild on Sunday and every body love it (don't forget I am in the Middle East so Sunday is a working day)
Here Are some pictures for all of you to see, I finished my back with a Christmas fabric, so it looks pretty on both sizes, and put some little bows in place of the buttons .
Aqui esta mi Guirnalda de Navidad terminada, fue el SAL de SewHappy como pueden ver en las fotos ,en la parte de atras puse una tela de Navidad asi se ve bonita por los dos lados y cambie los botones por una cinta dorada.

I have not done a lot in the last few days, we have had the Eid holiday in here so my DH was home for 5 days what a treat, we had a lovely time , some friends visit and the rest of the time we did very little just enjoy each other company.
The only thing I have been doing is the stitching for the Jura Point de Croix Blog Christmas Challenge, I can't show you any thing yet all I can say is that the designs are beautiful. and will be available to every one at the end of December. I don't know if you have visit this blog , it really is an inspirational one, with lots of ideas and great free patterns.Go and have a look and you will see what I mean.
Yesterday after DH went back to work I went to the shops for some thread(just one colour)I came home with lots of fabrics and other bits, what fun I had.
I also found a lovely SAL in Cose que te Cose blog, I love this mini quilt of a Christmas tree,I was late for the inscription, but Natitux was very kind and send the patterns so I can take part.know I must go have a swim and after some sewing, have a great day wherever you are.
Hemos estado de Vacaciones Eid bueno mi Esposo ha estado de vacaciones por 5 dias,asi que no he hecho mucho, cuando el esta en casa casi no entro a mi cuarto de las costuras, hago cosas a mano en las tardes cuando nos sentamos a ver una pelicula o algo en la television, he estado bordando alguno de delos diseños de el desafio de Jura Point de Croix para esta Navidad, no les puedo mostrar nada por el momento es un secreto hasta Diciembre, cuando se pondran las fotos de todas las participantes en el blog, si les puedo decir que los diseños son muy lindos y que estaran disponibles para todas a fines de año , no se si han visitado este blog, tiene cosas hermosas y muchos patrones gratis para bajar realmente vale la pena visitarlo.
