Busy, busy and a challenge

Yesterday afternoon and evening I was back into chutney and jam making mode,
Chutney with tomato, plum, onion, cucumber and apple and spices, it ended up a bit runny but smells wonderful, I haven't had a taste yet.

The plum jam is also runny but tastes sensational!!! 
I have been doing some sewing, so much more pleasant with the weather a bit cooler!! Tracee showed me a panel of fabric in a shop with animals printed on it,  so I backed it with flannel and sewed around the edges,  then stuffed them.
I was talking to Tracee today and we challenged each other to get things finished today and to post it...so here I am Tracee!!!
Today I made these little bags for the animals to sit in
and here they are ready to be taken to Seachange sit and sew next week, they will go on the sales table at the Quilt Show next month.
It is February and the Month of Letters where you try to write a letter/postcard to someone every day of the month, so I need to go and write the letter to be sent tomorrow.
Happy sewing.
Ps How are you going Tracee??

Hehe you and Tracee sound like good partners in crime!! The wee animals are so cute - what a great - and easy - gift idea - and fun that they have their own little bags to sit in too!!
