Finally, my first gocco print

Inspired by Suzy I finally plucked up the courage to try out my gocco printer (embarrassingly, I was given the gocco last year for Christmas) and made some Christmas cards. They are slightly smudged and the first screen was a bit of a fizzer so I think it will take a couple of sessions to master but I'm pretty happy with them.
My crafting has been slowing down here due to Ziya & I having head colds, fractured sleep and planning for our 3 weeks in Melbourne (I feel like there's a lot to plan...with a baby) and then there's the unfinished projects beckoning.....
I can't wait to lie on the beach and drink campari in the afternoon sun.

Here's a snippet of my Flickr favorites. For a closer look and links to the individual artists take a peep here. It's all very inspiring and great motivation for those handmade Chritmas decorations!

Keeping me busy

2 single quilt tops and a cot quilt top.... now ready and waiting to be basted & quilted pre Christmas.

a cross stitch. Hooray, the end is in sight.

and, a couple of pairs of new pants for the Little Fella to kick around in. It was quite a productive week. I hope this week is too, for everyone.
