Waving At You!!!


I am still about...
Been busy with real life lately, unfortunately for my blog, that will all get more time consuming very soon, at least from now and all through March.
There's an important medical operation (not mine)
There's a baby coming (not me, but will be mine!)
There's a sewing retreat very, very soon too!!!
And to put a cherry on top... there's a JURY  DUTY Summons!!! .... like I have time to fit that in.
Shop life....?
Trade show yesterday....
Oooooh my goodness, excited with goosebumps....
I ordered a surprise because I couldn't come home without it!!

I will be back.... Have a lovely week

Norma has been to collect her beautiful Batik Hidden Wells quilt back from the Long Arm quilter. There's just the binding to be done before we get to give a fabulous and finished, tooting, fanfare

Lorna made this housey block quilt using a pattern from a magazine and a Layer Cake from Moda. Borders and backing have been chosen too.

All Day Di was inspired watching me cut up a large pile of T-shirts on our Sunday Sew Day so she arrived for class last week with her very own large pile...

All cut up and designs measured, which takes longer than you would think... We played about with the possibilities for the lay out and chose the sashing fabric... 

Jeannette Dilly joined in with Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt and this is the fruits of her labours. Absolutely fabulous!! Jeannette hasn't quite decided what to do next so she needs a little more thinking time... to border or not to border?

Our Carol made up this fabulous design and had enough fabric left over to make a great backing too. It's all ready to be sandwiched and quilted.

Gail finished her lovely cushion, quilted and all... Zip installed in the back etc... now she decided to make another, smaller but perfectly co-ordinated. 

I'm having a bit of a job to keep up and 'on top' of everything, you probably noticed by the lack of posts and the last two cheating posts with just photos and no wise words from my very good self...
It is what it is though... 
I am trying to be healthy/healthier and it takes a long lot of my time to shop, peel and cook all those blooming veggies... and run (I lie... I mean walk fast!) around the block!! 
Normal blogging may resume soon... then again, it might not be soon! ha

Lou Lou started this quilt a year ago... like lots of us, she has no idea why she didn't finish it then. Now though, it is almost quilted and you can just see that the binding is in the building!!

Luna Twerly proudly held up this fabulous and finished lap quilt. She used two Charm Packs and a Moda Bella Solid green. Beautiful fabric chosen for the border is also on the back. Luna's making cushions to match too. Toot toot toot Luna Twerly.

Fiona Too wanted to try something different... this is a great quilting design to get you curving!! Gentle wavy lines... drawing them fist is allowed and they don't have to be perfectly even to look fabulous. Others will try it now, Fiona has inspired!

Enid is loving her project. She smiles so happily as she's working on it, loving the flowers, loving her beautiful Batik fabrics and the lovely colours...
Don't you love it, when you love it!!!
