Wool Felt Project


Some yummy wool felt and a lovely pin cushion pattern purchased from Thread & Ginger Patchwork.  A nice Sunday project.

Saturday afternoon date

Hubby saw a story on TV last weekend about a little shop at Newstead called Dello Mano.  He asked if I’d like to visit so today it was a date!  Who says no to visiting a chocolate shop???? 

DSC03183 This Pistachio & Rosewater hand made Brownie made it all the way home.  Wonders will never cease!

(sorry for the out of focus pic, my withdrawal tremors are triggered around chocolate!)

Christmas In July

DSC03177 A little stitchery I’m working on.  Pattern by Cinderberry Stitches, one of my favourite designers.

A couple of finishing touches….








…and now it’s complete.

Life is Beautiful

Travel Journal Cover 

A Travel Journal Cover – but I think I might find some ric-rac or similar to ‘dress’ the outside circle edge.   Perhaps it’s a bit wonky because I was hand stitching at midnight?

I do love Cosmo Seasons Variegated range of threads.

Big Quilt Completion

After being undecided as to how I would quilt my quilt top, I bit the bullet and sent my Spinning Charms Quilt to Koolkat Quilting  in Toowoomba. Kathy at Koolkat suggested a couple of quilting designs,from  which I chose ‘sticky buns’.   Brenda from Widebacks emailed me several backing suggestions of which I liked  Black  Chrysanthemums on White.  I bound it in a Black Homespun.  Today was it’s first outing as my ‘show and tell’ to my monthly quilting meeting at The Quilters Store in Salisbury.


While at the The Quilters Store I purchased some Hobbs Iron-On Cotton Wadding which I look forward to trying out soon on a smaller quilt top.
