Why would I need them? Well, I had a few things in mind for quite a while but didn't have the right fabrics.
The Christmas tree decorations are from a Tesco free magazine and the bunnies are from a sewing magazine I bought a while ago. Plus there are the little owls which I absolutely Love. And they are a free pattern. Take a look: http://moonstitches.typepad.com/photos/tutowlrial/zakkaowls.html
So happy seeing to me. Now I only need to find a bit of time for it.
