Busy times.....


Another lovely day with the Sunday Stitchers.....
Lunch was yummie as usual...


Show and tell is always great....

Susan and Inca's blocks for their Natalie Bird quilt......
can't remember the name of it at the moment......


Susan's beaut table runner.....


The big achiever this month was De.....



Fantastic De ...... so many terrific projects.


Inca brought her Splendid Sampler blocks .....
they look fantastic.

Well done......


I also received my Friends in Stitching swap pressie from De.....


Thanks for another terrific day girls.....

I have finally organised my sewing room to suit my design wall with help from Gav....

I have a quilt on the wall but now there is a new wooden rod and brackets.....
So here is the quilt.....


Now hanging in front of the quilt is my design wall.....


So when the design wall isn't needed then down it comes, I don't make a lot of pieced quilts so it does spend a lot of time in the cupboard......best of both worlds..... yay.....


My trusty little stool so I can reach the rod, it folds up and fits in the cupboard very nicely.


First project to be put up is the Splendid Sampler blocks.....
just because I could..... it was great to see them together as well.
Looking better than I thought they might as I'm using only stash fabrics.


This is how I used to lay things out..... messy and always in the way.


But now it is all soooo easy to see and work on......

A little secret sewing for someone very special.....


Block 30 Splendid Sampler.....


A bit of retail therapy with Heather..... yes we were pooped....
but what a lovely day we had.


So it's toodles from me again.....
