School Holidays are so good sometimes, that I wonder why we need to go back to work/school/job/life at all.........we have been away at the beach and we have had such a good time - just plain old good family time together!
But you are not interested in that!! No - show me some fabric!!!
These two shots are for the Colorbrick Quiltalong - hosted by Stitched in Color - this will be my last School Auction Quilt - maybe be my favourite yet!!
I had so much fun playing with my stash to find bright, interesting fabrics - loving my echidnas and chickens and apples ohyeah!
My Red & Aqua Block Swap was held last night at my place - it was a good turnout - with friends coming along for the first time and lots and lots of loud discussion about what to do with our next swap starting 2011.
My family chuckled about how noisy a bunch of women could be discussing sewing!!
But - what to do with my little blocks?
This was an idea....
and this was an idea.....
But, I like this!!
and then maybe this?? (dont ask me about the white sheet (actually) my design wall..huh?)
Some much wanted blocks for Australasian Bee member - Jen of Cheeky Child - she requested a 16 inch block made with her Michael Miller Fairy range of fabric and for us to embellish any way we like.
I found some lovely lace, stamped ribbon and made a lace flower:
Some extra blocks made for a friend's daughter: pink was requested for the borders and I love my Laurel Birch fabrics - I have had them for a very long time now and they should be used and enjoyed!
Here are the fam at Sorrento back beach or surf beach (if you dare!)
Some pink and white heath - our state floral emblem:
Love this picture of hubbie:
This one is for the Auntie - your wacky nieces!!
