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

  1. I like your design wall. It's very unobtrusive and neat.
