Its been a while..... but here I am.

Here is my new leadlight lampshade, I have been looking for a shade for such a long time and I finally found one, a little pressie for me.... from me. lol

Isn't it pretty, love the colours when the light is on.

Finally finished the "Floral Dreams" quilt, its for the chair my Mum sits on, its a lot bigger than the chair but I'm sure I'll manage.

I finished this quilt for Tereasa, she had made the top and I layered, quilted and bound it .... shes a busy little possum and just didn't have the time to finish it, I can't remember what pattern it is so I'll find out and edit this post later.

Happy stitching.......

Boy I like the Bathurst car race.... nah not really but it keeps the DH busy so I can get on with my craft. So my job for today was to layer and pin a quilt, I hate layering quilts so I decided to watch a movie " Australia" Teresa lent it to me and I haven't had a chance to see it yet...... thought it might take my mind off the job at hand but the TV I have in my sewing room apparently didn't want to see it ..... as there it was .... DVD..... trying to load but no way was that going to happen..... but I did get the quilt done so all is not lost, now for the ditch stitching and binding then of course a piccie for my blog.

Another little sample for my friend

This wallhanging is called "Love and Cuddles" quilt by Calico Farm Designs, very cute and a pleasure to make, love the fabrics and I must say it didn't take long too make either. Its a sample for Tereasa at "Homespun and Beautiful" aka Raggedy Station.

Catching up again !!!!!

Jenny hiding in the bushes.

Jenny, John and me. Bit blurry for this one.

Gavan, John and Jenny

On monday Gavan and I went to visit our friends Jenny and John in Bundaberg, just a quick over night visit but it was great to see them again, we went in our trusty little Light Sport plane so it was quite an adventure as it was my first long trip in it and yes I am still here to tell the tale. As you can see I just had to buy a couple of pressies for myself.... as you do..... they are from the "Quilters Shack" craft shop ( a great craft shop it is too )where Jenny works, it was lovely to meet the girls Jenny works with too. We had a good look at the town and also went to Bargara ( think thats right) by the water and there we had a great fish and chips lunch at a little shop near the water so relaxing, we also went out for tea to Sizzlers and a few coffee shops of course. Naturally I had a big tour of Jenny's craft room which is an important part of the trip lol and as usual we had a few laughs and lots of chatter, thank you Jenny for a great time.
