Looking back..... and forward....


Way back in November I finished off a pretty BlueBird quilt.... well I'm sure you know I hate to be one to drop names but I am friends with the designer.....  and we sew together regularly... and chat... and eat... and drink coffee... and occasionally wine....

ok... back to the quilt... at long last she has rereleased her pattern... (parts were lost digitally and had to be redone)... you can read her story HERE on her blog... say Hi ....

So, Christine now has a Craftsy store HERE and this months block is FREE..... it is Australian focussed so this is for Australia Day.... (but you could actually change the flag to whatever and it would still be awesome)  Thereafter there is a minimal charge for each block....


Now you can't tell about a quilt without a picture... you can see her quilt at her blog and this is the block for this month....


... I loved it the first time I saw it... and mine is hanging up in one of the bedrooms here at myhouse...

When I was paging through old blog posts trying to find when I made my bluebirds quilt I remember I showed you when we pulled down our patio..... HERE 

It was finished before Christmas....


... and its so lovely and cool ....


I use it heaps for stitching now.... 


Righto, Gotto Go.. time for stitching on the patio......

see you later....

    Great to see the patio done. It looks like a perfect place to enjoy your time. And hopefully good protection from that recent downpour!
