My little mini quilt is finished.....

The hand quilting is pretty ordinary... but I'm learning.....


This quilts is Shoofly Sampler made from Quirky Little Quilts book by Sheryl Johnson.  I hope to make another of hers next year..

This time I added triangles at the corners to add a rod.... will see how effective it works


This week I purchased a quilting frame.... I will try it on a bigger quilt and see if that helps me get a better holding style and rhythm ...


Over this week Mr Postie dropped off some special ornaments...

From Michelle.....

From Maria.....

… from Shez...

Thank you so so much....

I really love the hand made ornaments and I have a lovely collection now..... 

Widget is staying for a few days and so he put the tree together for me and we are slowly adding the handmade ornies ….. 


I am very late with doing mine so today whilst he made up a jigsaw I did my ornie envelopes....


I finished off another penguin jumper ….. now we have 5 


Today I had a skin check at the doctors and as we went off in the car Widget was telling me about his thoughts on Santa being a fake.... (he is 10 now)

Well, I wanted an explanation about the ones that we see in the shops for photographs..... he was trying to tell me that they are a 'substitute' Santa....

"The ones in the store are prostitute Santa's"...…. well I was almost off the road …. 

Still makes me laugh out loud..... 



Righto, Gotto Go... my turn for a few ornies on the tree......

Out of the mouth of babes. That is too funny. I love your latest mini quilt. I’ve used the triangles in the corner method and it worked well. Good luck with your hand quilting journey. I don’t have the patience at this stage, but I do have a hoop. All th3 ornaments are gorgeous. Your tree will be full to overflowing.

I love those sort of things, lol. Shame we don't remember all of them! I've just put triangles on the corners of one of my little quilts, for the larger ones, I put a mini sleeve in the middle to help support it :)
