I have a friend who lives in Canada and I repeatedly ask her to build a snowman and send me photos as there is no snow here...for the longest time I have been waiting...patiently. Then this arrived!
Can you imagine my surprise and delight! Even the little bears were thrilled and impressed. I love it! My friend is soooo clever. Better than a snowman any day. Thank you Bliz xxx

I love gadgets. I love tools. I love any sort of thingy that will make my life easier and save me time. I'm busy and most times I quilt it's after work and I'm a little tired...so if there is something that can help me feel less tired, save me time and make my quilting more enjoyable and easier, then I'm all in!
Enter this little beauty! Oh my goodness! How I lived and survived for so long before getting one I will never know. I used it for the first time and fell immediately in love - hard core. True. This is one of the best things I have ever bought.

I first time I saw one of these it was used here and I was blown away and went immediately to their shop and bought one. If you live in Australia and want one, you can find them here.
I love it so much I'm considering buying the 17" - but for now I am smitten by the 12" and would be lost without it. No more moving blocks to square them up, just place in on this little baby and turn it.

Please excuse the unswept floor, but sometimes housework takes a backseat to quilting. This is a sock monkey quilt for a very special little man in my life - kid #3. He loves all things Toy Story and monkey - go figure...Anyway when he saw the Spotlight catalogue with the sock monkey fabric, well there was no way I was getting out of not buying some and whipping up a little snuggler.

None the less, I did persevere and it is all finished, ready for the trip to Canada, to its new home.

Sometimes surfing the net and having a look around brings you upon happy little surprises. I happened upon these delightful bags and decided to purchase 2 of the patterns. This one has a pleat at the front about 1/3 of the way down - sadly the photo doesn't really show the pleat but it is such a great bag! It's roomy enough to fit a bunch of stuff in, but not too big that you can't find things.
This little gem will be coming on my trip to Canada in September. Think I'll use it to house my knitting and my novel.
