I forgot the wonderful scarf/neckwarmer.  It will be very useful at Cootamundra this winter

Thank you

Hi,   I received a parcel in the mail.  It was the Autumn swap.  I haven't participated before and am blown away by the generousity. 

Thanks so much Cheryll.  You have taken so much time and effort to send me a great parcel.  I am looking forward to getting knitting, and those tiny scissors, how cute.

It is strange thinking about Autumn, as summer hasn't started yet here in NSW.

Ian is away with the SES, helping out people in flooded areas, so I am off to play in the sewing room.

Happy New Year

I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year holiday.  I certainly did.  We got in lots of flying and caught up with lots of friends.

This is a picture of the quilt I started in July, 2010, and have loved putting the blocks together, hated putting the sash pieces together, then had a terrible feeling it would not fit together, and would look terrible, so tossed it into the corner and made other quilts.

However, I couldn't let it beat me, so I bit the bullet and put it together, ( of course it fitted almost perfectly), had it professionaly quilted and it now lives on our bed.  Love it.
You can see the indiviual blocks in the July 2010 blog posts.
I am glad I got it out, it was a major block to overcome, but now I am ready and rearing to go with lots of new projects for 2012.

Catch you all later.

Matt's Quilt

When in Cobar on the October long weekend, I saw a kit for this quilt and decided that I would make it for Matt for Christmas.  I think the heat was affecting my brain.

Still, when Ian and Matt went away for 2 weeks in November, I got stuck into it.

Then I had quilters block (is there such a thing?).  How do I quilt it.

I like to read Chris H's blog, and she posted a picture of her son's room, complete with a quilt that she made.  Chris quilted the quilt with wavy lines and it inspired me to action.

The finished quilt is ready for our family christmas party on Sunday

Thanks Chris.

Weekend fun

Look what I did this weekend.  Ian went on a boys weekend, so I was able to get in and peice this quilt, quilt it and get half of the binding done. 

I am taking it to a retreat this weekend.

I will post better pictures when the weather brightens up and I finish it.

Mariners Compass

I did a class in January, foundation piecing with Chris Jurd.  I had this almost finished in the class, and only had to add the background at home.  I made it into a compass, as it is hanging in the living area of the hangar, so seemed appropriate.

I am busy doing hexagons now, I hope to have a table runner finished over the weekend
