Craft and Quilt Fair - Melbourne

Here are a couple of photos of the treasures that came home with me from the Craft and Quilt Fair last Sunday...
Again, my photos aren't that great.  No plans for the Bali Pops as yet but I am sure that I will find something fun to do with them!  The variegated threads are a bit of a weakness of mine, I just have to buy them and I love using them for quilting.

I also bought a gorgeous pattern and Monica Poole's new book "Quilt as You Go" (they are coming in the mail as they were all sold out) from Margaret's Fabrics

Oh and my quilting mojo seems to have returned - I have finished the quilting on my "Summer Lemonade" quilt, I just need to trim it to size and bind it. 

The cat is currently checking the quality of my workmanship

I'm a BAD blogger

I just realised how long it has been since I posted... oops!

I have been working a lot and have been away a few times so the days have just slipped away from me, sadly not much sewing has been happening around here BUT I did manage to attend the Craft and Quilt Fair in Melbourne last Sunday, I will post some photos of my goodies on the weekend.

I may even manage to do a bit of sewing this weekend.... maybe!

Another week slips by

It has been a busy week and it has just zoomed on by!

I have almost finished sewing a new coat for the dog (she is getting old and needs a little bit of extra warmth in winter) - just need to do a little bit of hand sewing on some binding and I am DONE... I used fabric from my stash and the coat is looking pretty cute.

Sadly I haven't done any more quilting on my "Summer Lemonade" and I don't think I will have time to work on it this week either - I need to spend a little time putting the finishing touches onto a friend's quilt before I give it to her next weekend. I am sure that this week will fly by also.

Weekend progress, on several fronts

I have been working on getting this quilted (I am about 3/4 done) and it is looking nice

My zygo is now in full flower, it is so bright and cheery in my sewing room (my photography skills just don't do it any justice)

And Dad has started work on a built in wardrobe in my third bedroom... finally some much needed storage for all of the kids toys etc!  It is going in  an unusable corner of the room behind the door.  Much more has been accomplished since I took this photo - the cupboard now has an end and 3 shelves up the top.
