Mothers Day


A Mothers love, is sure to find
A way to comfort, ease your mind

She knows just how, to build you up
When youre so down, and cant look up

You love the way, she makes you feel
Like youre so special, her ideal

Her thought must start, with God above
To bring such caring, with such love

And as it flows, like gentle rain
It surely helps, when troubles pain

The love from mine, is oh so clear
I only wish, she was still here

Her warming glow, is missed each day
Even though, I seldom say

But she did leave, her gift behind
To help me through, when I may pine

And thats the feel, known deep inside
Her faith and love, I still confide

What have I been doing?

The rainy days here have been really great for progressing my many many projects.

I have bought some new fabrics which are shown here. I thought to myself "You can never have too many bags" so I made myself a new bag last night hehhhehe.

The colours of the trees are beautiful at this time of the year. Inspiration for new quilts I suppose.

Its about time that I got myself a design wall, so here it is. I put it up yesterday and stuck some random things on it to take the photo.

A new BOM project was started. It is called "In Pop's Garden" by Threadbare (Hobart). I have finished block one and have almost finished block 2. The photo below is block 1.

The fabric below is from Windham fabrics and is two ranges. Elegant and Sophisticated Sophia. This has been put aside for a quilt that I have been designing. It will feature a centre stitchery and borders. I am still working out the rest of it. There will be flying Geese blocks as an outer border as well. I can't wait to start that one.

The Martinique range from Moda is so lovely. I found some fat quarters and could feel a bag coming on so I turned them into another bag.

Until next time
Happy Stitching etc
and enjoy Autumn
