This is the last FNSI for 2015 and I am afraid that I did not get too much done in the way of sewing due to a number of other happenings.     I have been busy preparing an early  Christmas as bub and her mummy and daddy will be out of Sydney on the "real" Christmas Day visiting other family members so we decided to have our "family Christmas Day" this weekend.  Also  Grandpa and I had our little visitor for a couple of days so that her parents could attend the midnight screening of the new "Star Wars" movie.

The next day all the storms that were rolling around the area cleared so we headed off to the beach with our bucket and spade

After a play in the sand it was into the pool for a few kicks and a cool off

I am very pleased to say that the fairy houses and fairy playmat had lost none of their magic from last week and many hours over the three days were spent playing with them as well as having the odd ice block to cool off in between

So after all this activity I had a little time to have a  play around with some scraps and found native Australian flowers, gum leaves, red, white and blue fabric and the Aussie flag which I thought would be appropriate to use in  January's Sun Bonnet Sue  and call it "Aussie Sue" seeing that we celebrate Australia Day in January.

Thank you Wendy for being such a lovely hostess and inviting all us bloggers along each month to take part in a fun night of sewing and crafting.    To see what others have achieved during the night please hop over to Sugarlane Designs.   I look forward to joining everyone again in 2016 and I wish you  all a very happy Christmas and lots of lovely sewing and crafting in the New Year.

Back soon and in the meantime

 Happy sewing all

I love the Sunbonnet Sue bag and what a great idea to do an 'Aussie' one for January.

She's such a cutie Karen, neat that you get to spend quality time with your little granddaughter. Your Aussie Sue is cute - a fun idea with the Australian fabrics.
