I have been busy!
School work, supplies and uniforms – 3 pairs of black shoes and 2 pairs of runners…why do their feet grow so fast???

Another zippered  bag and tissue holder I whipped up on Monday night – it is some of the fabric that followed me home from Spotlight on the weekend.
I finished off 3 mini mug rugs that have been lurking in a pile for a long time (see Cheryll, I do sometimes finish things), lol...

I had a lovely chat with my postie today and it turns out he handed my my gift from Katherine which was a gorgeous mug rug with an angel and a block of Lindt chocolate (my favourite chocolate) – thank you Katherine!

And then there is this and it is a shocker of a photo  - boy did I move as I snapped it in my haste to show you.  I have begun quilting my Great Granny.  I have done 2 rows so far – I have decided to go down the centre of each row of colours and as I had hoped you really can’t see it on the patterned fabrics.  I didn’t want the quilting to detract from the fabrics.  Well I’m off the feed 3 kids so their feet can grow some more and then I’m going to continue my Great Granny and avoid the pile of ironing and the school preparation I SHOULD be doing.


  1. think I should add the final border to my Great Granny and sent it down to you to quilt for me :) as for the school prep, yep ignoring that two for as long as I can as last time I tackled it my bank balance looked rather sad :( and booklists for secondary school are on Friday ... ouch! Ok I had better get back to the ironing as the reality of having no clothes in my wardrobe has hit! Have a great day. hugs

  2. OMGoodess you have been busy buying school things and sewing. Well done.....
