All sorts.....

You may have noticed I'm a scatterbrain... a bit of this and a bit of that... my decorating style is eclectic... just whatever takes my fancy... and my sewing is just the same.... a bit of this and a bit of that... always...

I have done the last of these blocks for my Wings quilt...  


.. and yesterday I sewed the blocks all together.

 

I am a little concerned my fabrics aren't going to last the rest  but scatterbrain here will put it aside for a while and have a think and chats to designer Michelle


In my garden our pink hydrangea is blooming beautifully.  we bought this as a small plant less than a year ago....  I have two others, still only with little buds and different colours ...


.. and our white Jacaranda is flowering... a little bit scint as it is suffering from not enough water


I did some grid quilting this week.  I avoid marking as it takes up a lot of time but it was needed for this one

Gentle waves from corner to corner


and back taking care of the directions 


remove the gridlines and apple core quilting...  


This could easily be done using a walking foot if you prefer

the quilting was for the back of cushions.... 


When I made the box pouch last week I quilted up a bigger piece of fabric... I couldn't throw out the piece I had left... so it has made up another mug rug for my house...


Hand stitching has resulted in another United Stitches 4" block stitched up....


… and something new started!


On Thursday my son and a grandiegirl arrive from UK for a visit....

Her new hedgehog quilt is on her bed and a welcoming committee have settled in...


I will be having a bit of social media break …..

Righto, Gotto Go... I guess I better make up a bed for her dad too!! haha...

Have fun, keep safe, special thoughts to those affected by the crazy scary fires....

Your blooms are beautiful, here the last of the foliage is dropping to the ground and it is bitter cold. I see you have been busy, love the bunnies, the threads are wonderful and would be great in Christmas projects, will have to see if i can find something like that here.
