At last.....


I have finally finished off this wall quilt made with the little houses made from scraps in last years Rainbow Scrap challenge....


… and today whilst I went out to a birthday party Hubz hung it up for me....

...in our laundry area.... 


I felt the need for some 'art' in my laundry... so now we have it!

I have to admit I just love it and now wash day will be more cheerful!  (hmmmm) 

Michelle came visiting up this way this week and we had a lovely time visiting some of the quilty things happening over carnival time.... I didn't take pictures but Michelle has lots so please visit her HERE and HERE to see some of what we saw..... 

She was a little naughty and brought me this sweet gift.... lovely happy fabric and a binding/ribbon holder. Thanks my friend....


Sue has made some lovely fat quarter quilts, you can see one of them HERE  I have this small bundle of fat quarters which has been hiding in a cupboard so I have pulled them out, purchased some plain white and I'm ready to start a new quilt.... I think it will look lovely...


Another friend of mine was sorting her stash and discovered her United Stitcheries bundle.  It has two of each stitchery and the idea was sew one for you and one for a friend.... anyway we are going halves and sewing our own each.…. they are really sweet stitcheries and Sue has already done her first one in the same colours as the card.  I am going for a variegated thread and even found the fabrics I want to put it together with....

The stitchery blocks are only 4 1/2".  Rather gorgeous....


Some time ago I showed my African violet leaves.... and I am excited to announce that some roots are showing..... if you look at the one on the left you can see dinky little roots started.... 


A little bit exciting

I mentioned that I went to a birthday party today.  Kris took some lovely pictures of the occasion and shared them HERE  on her blog..


It was a lovely occasion and the cake was made by one of the party girls.... just magnificent


All those flowers made with butter icing …. gosh so clever and so beautiful....

It tasted good too!

Righto, Gotto Go... all that partying has tired me out!!

I love your little laundry beach houses! That quilt turned out so wonderfully, a happy reminder of warm summer days. And that cake...I had to really peer at it to see the icing! I think it's better to get cake that looks like flowers than flowers that look like cake :)

Michelle Ridgway said...

I love how your quilt came out, somewhat traditional and somewhat artsy, and it looks beautiful on the wall. Looks like a fun party and a beautiful cake.
