What a year!

2020 wow, what a year so far.

Horrific bush fires followed by some beautiful rain on drought stricken land and now the Coronavirus. We will get through this and come out well on the other side, whenever that may be.

Now, I’m into my 3rd week without classes, a very odd quite time. FaceTime and phone calls are just not quite the same as the hands on that I’m used too.

It took me a few days to get my head around the fact that I suddenly had all this spare time. Time that I didn’t have to work on all the ideas and projects that have been floating around in my head. Now! I have the time to plan and make new projects, new classes, new patterns and I’m into it.

Firstly I needed to complete a few things I had started or planed.

No 1 on my list was to make a cover for the quilting machine. From my stash I took a tub of 2 1/2” squares and started alternating colour and neutral till I got the effect I wanted. 396 squares later I’m very pleased with the end result.

There’s lots more I have been doing, but that will have to wait for another day.

Keep sewing and stay safe.

Christmas Patterns

Coming out of the Gumnut Gear vault are two of our classic Christmas patterns, Puff Patches Christmas Tree and Santa Sack. Both are newly available through Craftsy, along with a new for download table runner pattern, It’s Time.

Santa Sack is perfect for holding presents and other goodies ready for Christmas morning. It can be personalised by appliquéing a name on the front of the bag (letter shapes are included in the pattern).

 

 

 

Puff Patches Christmas Tree is a beautiful hanging decoration. It can be made two-sided to hang in doorways or from ceilings, or one-sided for decorating walls and doors.

 

It’s Time is a cheery table runner, great for adorning the Christmas table when made in Christmas colours or prints. Or make it in any colour scheme you like for year-round use. 

We also have a number of other Christmas themed patterns available, such as the Table Topper table-runner, A Bit Like Christmas quilt, the Welcome Christmas wallhanging and Seasons Greetings table-runner and placemat set.
