Sewing makes me happy.....


Yesterday sewing with the girls I continued with some machine applique..... I now need to do some hand stitching on these flowers and giraffes

A very cute pattern called Hush by Julie Lovell


The last few days have been just perfect weather - cooled down from summer but not cold - I love home made soups and had a chance to use my new mug given to me by local daughter on Mothers Day.... isn't it great?  That's the spoon sticking out the handle...



I present to you my Teddy cushion... this was a pattern from a Stitchers Dream Day Out a couple of years ago and is designed by Libby Richardson (who will be back this year)  She taught us to paint our teddies and make those little flowers ... then it got put away but finally I have finished it....

I think it's really sweet... and it's another UFO out the cupboard!


Our bottle brushes are just starting to come out.... I know I am going to be getting the sneezes soon but the Rainbow Lorikeets love them and they do add a bit of autumn brightness...


Righto, Gotto Go..... some quilting to do today....
