My second project for the Quilt Fabric Delights Christmas in July was the Rory Reindeer Goodies Basket.
I love to make baskets like this to store my bits and pieces. Rory is a keeper and I'll be placing all the cards, small gifts, tags and ties ready to go in him.
shows the projects available to download. It really is great value, especially if you would like to start your Christmas sewing now.

We stayed at Trinity Beach, around 30 minutes from Cairns with our accommodation on the beach front. Matt and the kids went walking and paddling at the beach each morning and swimming in the Resorts pool each evening.
Maya is pictured at the Wildlife Habitat at Port Douglas. Fruit Bats are one of Maya's favourite animals so this was on our list. We also wanted to see some of the unique FNQ wildlife such as Cassowary's, wallaby species and Tree Kangaroo's
Port Douglas is beautiful and I think we may stay there next time. We were too late to take the walk through Mossman Gorge but that's on our list for next time too.

My pattern for the Jolly Elves was released today at the Quilt Fabric Delights Christmas in July retreat. I'm looking forward to seeing some of these stitched up! There is another design of mine to come too.
Drawing and stitching Elves has kept me busy for the past couple of weeks, even after studying drawing and painting at Uni in takes me awhile to get a design together and I don't often release stitchery patterns.
It's not too late to join the online retreat. I would love to see you there.
