A new UFO gets to see the light of day this week. - number 6 on my List of Six. All rolled up – what’s inside? I remember now, I had cut and pinned several pieces together, all ready to start stitching.
Pinned up ready to start stitching
The New Zealand inspired fabric is covered in cute little caravans, sun umbrellas and red flowering pohutukawa trees, known as the New Zealand Christmas tree. It shows scenes of summer camping holidays by the beach, the sort of holidays we grew up with.

I’m making an apron and a set of table mats to use in our caravan. So far I’ve stitched up all the bits I’d previously cut out and pinned – straps for the apron, and started to assemble the pieces for the place mats.
Stitching the pieces together
Tomorrow we are heading away on a road trip in our caravan, so I’ll be swapping the sewing machine and this project for hand stitching my Christmas ABC blocks while I am away. But I’ve made a start on this UFO – and each little bit helps, don’t you think?
