Thanks again to the wonderful Wendy ... did you have one of her lovely apple cream pastry goodies? We had a bit of lamb done in the slow cooker with a glass of beer of course....
Yesterday was cold and windy... perfect for indoors and I had "The Good Wife" and "Chicago Fire" to catch up on..... I tell you... it is tough when it's cold in Queensland!!!!
... so a few more stars are done..... it's beginning to look like "MERRY CHRISTMAS"
... thought I would show you the size of these stars..... (I thought they were littler!)
I had finished off the quilting from last week and wanted to play with my mini feathers... a 6" square quilted
this is a shiny stretchy fabric I have placed on double sided pellon ...
Now I can hear "Why?" and "What" - I have no idea but I like doing them....
I cut and started to sew my Hello World fat quarter bundle.... 10" squares...
... and that was Friday.... woke up to a goodly frost this morning and ice on the birdbath... queensland birds don't understand about ice skating poor things.... but it does mean it's going to be an outstanding day....
Righto, Gotto Go... whatever you do I hope it's a load of fun....
Your stars are beautiful Fiona
and your quilting is amazing - I love you do it just because!! I am sitting here grinning at skating birds!!! Our birds are quite used to that in the winter! :-) Hello World looks lovely too.
Looks like a successful Friday...
Yes an a cold wind blowing here today... I DON'T like it! But it's great for indoor activities like sewing... so I guess I AM happy! :)
I love your stars! You're doing a beautiful job with them Sorry to hear it's so cold there. It's just now Friday night here, so I must go start stitching.
I think 6 inch quilts make perfect sense! Your swag is coming along beautifully and I look forward to seeing how Hello World comes out.
Did you pour some hot water in the birdbath so the birdies could have a lovely warm bath?
I love your stars...they look fabulous! :0)
Hi Fiona such lovely work you have done i love the stars and now i am picturing your birds ice skating on the bird bath,lol,enjoy your weekend my lovely friend.xx
That cold is coming off our snow.....Lol! I love your Christmas starts they are adorable....Look forward to seeing what you do with them x
That is a fabulous little 6" quilt. The design in the middle is so cute surrounded by the big feathers. It looks like it was stamped on copper. Love it and love the stitchery stars too. Stay warm.
Love the stars Fiona. Got my pattern out to trace them out but babysitting has gotten in the way. :).
Frost and skating birds here again this morning too.......yesterday was perishing cold. Your stars are definitely much larger than they seem at first glance, aren't they!
I am loving those stars more and more everytime I see them. It must have been really cold up on the range considering how cold and windy it was down here in Brisbane yesterday.
Sounds like yummy food, good movies and wonderful projects at your place last night!
That is definitely going to be a piece your christmas visitors will notice and admire.
Love the stars they look beautiful. x
Love those little stars. Should look brilliant at Christmas time.
those stars sure are multiplying! they look amazing.
so much detail in your quilting sample. Great start on your hello world quilt.
hope the frost eases up for you
A lovely quilt in the making, and as always, a great quilting sample, love it
You poor Queenslanders will be freezing! Your stars are lovely, I thought they were smaller too. And your quilting is outstanding, you're getting very good.
Yes, the one thing about your cold nights is you can usually guarantee a beautiful day will follow.
You may have to make little booties for the birds!
Your stars are looking wonderful. You can play word games with them, now.
Love seeing you playing with your quilting!
You had a good night.....the stars are so cute...
I hope you put some hot water in the bird bath!! the stars look wonderful.
Lots of fun at your place. Skating birds.. haha.
Lovely stars you're making and that is serious quilting magic.
Enjoy your sunshine.

If you have ice on the bird bath imagine what it is like here xx
I just love, love, love those stars. And your feather quilting, stunning. If I keep practicing, maybe I can do it, too!! Keep warm!
You are progressing beautifully with the gorgeous stars. (they are much bigger than I had imagined). Love your "just because" feathers. Poor birds having to learn to ice skate.
Your star swag is looking very festive. Those stars are larger than I imagined and they will look look lovely decorating your house at Christmas. Well done with the feathers, they look very professional.
