I don't know about you but I've found getting back into the sewing and blogging harder than I thought after the Christmas and New Year break. However I am now well and truely back to sewing, especially now the kids are back at school.

My first project for 2012 was a present for my wee niece who is 3 today. Happy Birthday Tamar! 

There's so many things you could make for a wee girl but I'd really recommend The 3 Bears' Sleeping Bag Pattern by Flossie Teacakes. I was very lucky and won a copy just before Christmas. There's 3 sizes, Daddy, Mummy and Baby Bear this time I made a Daddy Bear sized one. It was a joy to make and I'll happily make many more.

Jamie's already demanded one for his teddy! Although if you saw the state of his teddy (Pom from The Fimbles) I think she's more in need of a trip to a spa and a reconstructive surgeon. She's extremely well loved (= falling apart) and tonight a small incident with a sharpie pen. For some reason he decided to draw on rosy cheeks and yes bum cheeks too!

I have many pre Christmas projects to share and a few presents to show off too but I'll leave that for another time otherwise this post will turn into a ramble-fest.

So a belated Happy New Year to you all and also welcome to my new followers. I was rather tricked to find I've now got 100 followers whoo hoo!!

Bye for now

Hi Nikki,
Super-cute pressie! :-)
I know what you mean about finding it hard to get back into real-life. I haven't done ANY sewing since we returned to Germany after New Year!

Happy New Year! The 3 bears pattern is bliss to sew up, innit? Are you going to the MQG on the 25th?

Happy new year! What, no photos of teddy with the rosy cheeks? ;o) And the WCSMQG now has a website and everyfink, aren't you impressed? http://westcentralscotlandmodquiltguild.freeforums.org/index.php
