How did it get to the week before Christmas!

I know that I have been planning and making Christmas treasures for ages now but seriously - how did we get to the week before already!! 

I had a parcel of fabric arrive last week from Ballarat Patchwork.  They were having a sale so I treated myself to some fabrics and some books and Patterns. A girl can never have to much fabric (can she!!!).



I am especially keen to get started on one of the projects from Janelle Wind's Book - Pieces of Me.  I finally entered the world of the 21st Century and got an i-phone and so what do you need most importantly when you get one?  Yes of course you need a cover for it.  There is a beautiful cover in Janelle's book so I hope to show you next time some completed photos of my i-phone cover.

I also made some Aprons for my girls with some Amy Butler laminated fabric that I also bought.  My girls love art and crafting and mostly this involves lots of mess and paint so I wanted to make some Aprons that I could just wipe off.  I have not worked with laminated fabric before so I was a little unsure of things like when I normally iron the press hems - how do I do this with a plastic coated fabric?  And the fabric was folded so how do I get out the creases?  If anyone can help me out would love to know the secrets of working with this type of fabric.
