This is amazing!!! Over a year since I did a blog post.
I have been busy with several things and sewing and quilting and quite a few other things.
Please don't be shocked that I have finally done a blog post...I hope to do more so wonders never cease Hehehe!
I do post regularly on Facebook and Instagram so pop on over to these and follow me there. Left side bar has the links.
Well I think I will just go thru all my pics and see what is worth showing you all and just hope I don't bore you to tears.
Blissful Blooms
First up I designed this adorable table runner from the gorjuss fabrics 'Bloom and Bliss' by Ellis&Higgs ...I love it and fell inlove with it the minute I saw it.
I got several lots of the fabric in my shop and it went as quick as a flash out the door. Should have ordered lots and lots.
Anyway I had a few lovely ladies test this pattern for me and they really enjoyed it and found a few mistakes in the pattern but not too many (thank goodness).
The lovely Nelly Holmes made a lovely version in her fabrics
Amy Stuck made it in the Bloom and Bliss fabrics and it has turned out superb.

Love them both and thanks for being my testers.
You can purchase the pattern from my Craftsy Store here
Enjoy sewing it and please show me your finished one. I love seeing everyone's interpretation of my designs.
I had fun sewing up this fabulous Grab and Stash bag and am hoping to make some more. Cant have enough bags full of stitching stuff to grab on the way out the door. You never know when you will be sitting and waiting and to be able to stitch up your hexies or fun little stitcheries.

I have a heap of photos to show you and will do in the next couple of posts.
I just don't want to overpower you.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you are having a fabulous day.
Hugs to you all....

Sewing a few things……

Hi everyone… gosh long time no see lol… I do see what most of you get up to on

Facebook and Instagram but blogging seems to be a bit of a slow point for me.

I have been sewing a few things and keeping busy …

These ones are designs from A Bee In My Bonnet and if you don't know but

Lori Holt is one of my most favourite designers. 

Star Cluster Mini Quilt

Next week I am heading off to Adelaide for the

Australian Machine Quilting Festival…

I can’t wait because I am staying with my gorgeous friend Dawn and together we are going to the AMQF

and we are going to have lessons with Judi Masden from Green Fairy Quilts and also we are

going to do a trunk show with Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilts ….. How awesome is that???

This is the badge we are going to get for attending the weekend event.




I bought myself a slow cooker…well this one is 8 in 1 cooking so it steams, fries, deep fries, slow cooks and bakes.

So far I have done a couple of slow cooked meals in it and they have turned out great … I am really loving it,

plus I deep fried some chips which turned out great also. I am in a group on FB for slow cooking so

get lots of inspiration and recipes there.

You are probably wondering what these are…… Well they are basted shapes

that I then have sewed by hand into different Rose Star blocks.

I am really enjoying making these and have made quite a few to soon put together to make a quilt.

Just a bit of experimenting with PP…the fabrics are not really suiting this

but I might do it again in different fabrics.

More stitching…this is from Pam Kitty Morning….I am waiting on some fabric to

come so I can finish this ….I have needleturned 9 blocks all up.



and this one is a foundation pieced block…I might do a few more

and make it a lap size quilt…mostly a table topper.

I like to make them that size as then I can put them on my table

and not folded up and packed away in the corner.

And this one is a Mini Medallion quilt which is part of a Series by Chrissy Lux of

Sew Lux Fabric for Clover & Violet.

I am really enjoying sewing this and cant wait for the next round. 2014-09-16 11.25.16

so I hope you all are well and happy and sewing up a storm.

hugs to all and

have nice day

Not too sure why….

When I read my blog what ever I post is ok but the headings or the other bits are all teeny tiny. I noticed it was like that on another blog as well. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Just want to show you the Row Along I did with A Bee In My Bonnet. I really love what Lori Holt does… she is an amazing designer.

I haven't finished it but have done all the quilt top and label.. next is quilting it. yay!!
