It was wonderful to have the girls over and do some sewing of our Sylvia's Bridal Sampler on Tuesday..... we got 2 blocks done
|Birds In The Air (10 pieces)|
|Weathervane (37 pieces)|
Even though I haven't finished unpacking I was in desperate need to do a bit of quilting... this is a sweet panel from The Quilters Angel - many of you will recognise it is Anni Downs pictures
(sorry for the faded look)
I am going to go around the edges and then up the sashings - simple quilting so the pictures are shown up well...
For those of you who do Facebook I have opened up a page for BubzRugz . This will be more sewing and quilting related as opposed to my personal page...
I have been doing some hand stitching in the evenings..... just a hint for now until Helen receives it...
On Wednesday I went on the bus with a friend to the Craft and Quilt Fair in Brisbane... one of the things I bought was some crushed walnut shells ... then around the corner I saw some more - look at the difference as to the grinding... so I got some more of the finer one which I think would be kinder to pins? It's not cheap is it? I have had no luck sourcing from Pet Stores around here.
I also attended a workshop run by BeBe Bold on 'boro' which was fun and I got this top of a coaster completed in the hour.... mine certainly was the most 'organic' one - the others looked so much tidier - but I had fun and think I might use some scraps this way!
I wanted to get a few more backgrounds in Reproduction prints for my sampler quilt... a couple of colours got mixed up with them too!!!
I didn't take photo's on the day... I had a problem with my phone (which is also my camera).... it was in my back trouser pocket and fell out when I got up from the loo!!! I will spare you the details but after a wipe and overnight dry it seems to be ok for now!!
However, I did meet up with a few people, and missed a few others, ran out of time to look at all the stores and quilts and was almost late for boarding the bus back!
Righto, Gotto Go... I'm off to play with that panel
