Bits of this and That....

Here is my "Earl Grey Moment" quilt all pinned and ready to quilt but for me this is the bit I hate the most..... the embroidery is my favourite part of any quilt.


 I made Mel ( my son Rob's partner) this shaggy quilt for her birthday 23rd June, she feels the cold so I thought this quilt would be just the thing for her but she didn't really want to be in the piccie so thats as good as it gets. lol

    
This is the little quilt I made for Fiona in the "Mini Quilt Swap" organised by Cheryll, this is really a fun swap.


Another block done for the "My Favourite Things" quilt, I've been a little slow with this one but I will get stuck into it now.


Lastly this block, its for the "Christmas Fun" BOM.... not many to go now as its only small.


Yes I know.... I promised not to go on about the Sydney trip anymore but...... I forgot to add one of my really terrific buys..... on our shopping tour with Lynda I could hear the most beautiful violin music and in the city mall was this man playing and I just couldn't go past without buying one of his CD's, he has 6 and I certainly will be getting another 1 or 2 or even more..... I have it playing now as I write this post..... fantastic. 


                           Okay thats it now.... I really truely promise.

Your Earl Grey Quilt looks great Helen. I am with you there about the quilting although I am finally practicing on my quilter so hopefully I'll be confident enough soon to quilt some of my UFO tops. Hugs....
