This week has been a great week for the mail box! First up I got my mug rug from Sharon….
I really LOVE it! She used my favourite fabric range “Sunkissed” and the navy background sets it off beautifully! Sharon also made a matching needle book! This was for the Mug Rug Adventure Swap and sign ups for the next round start on Sunday. This has been so much fun I highly recommend joining in! The button is on my side bar for the link!
The next day I got some Joel Dewberry….
This is from Sew Love Fabric. It is the Aviary 2 range. I love the colours in this fabric and I plan on using for the Double Wedding Ring quilt but first I need to pick a background fabric….any suggestions?
Yesterday I had a girly day with my mum. We caught up with Jane for coffee. What a great chat we had!
Now I finally have some Sunkissed to call my very own! I bought this from Jane’s shop. And some lovely charm squares Jane threw in too!
We visited Quilt Essentials at Eatons Hill.
I couldn’t resist the Kaffe. I love the grey background. And the solid was on sale so I got what was left, only about 3m! Don’t they go together well?
Next stop was East Coast Fabric at Lawnton. They sell patchwork fabric cheap….not because it is inferior but mostly it is end of lines.
The top fabric is a panel and I am seeing a sewing machine cover! The ricrac is from the Oh Cherry Oh range by Moda.
We then went and had a little visit with Christine. If you have the chance to meet fellow bloggers go for it! It has been wonderful meeting 2 ladies who are passionate about quilting too. And being able to put faces to blogs makes it so much more friendly!
So I have done some major stash building this week, but I do have plans for most of it!
Oh yeah, I almost forgot about the new life part!
If you look closely you might be able to count 7 chickens. Hubby noticed the hen was missing and thought a snake had gotten her. Then he goes down to collect the eggs and feed the others, and there she is with 7 little chickies! They are soooo cute! How she managed to sit on 7 eggs for so long without being discovered is amazing, she obviously knows a good hiding spot!
