Saltbox collection finished.

These coasters and pot holders are the last pieces of the Saltbox Collection kit, they did take a little while to finish even though are are small, lots of binding to stitch but I think they look good and my daughter.... Heather .... is very pleased with them and suit her decor very nicely.

Now to get on with the next project, I feel so motivated at the moment, hope this mood lasts for a while.

Another great "Stitchers Dream Day Out" 2008

As you can see the table decorations were truly lovely so I bought them at the end of the day.

Tereasa ( in pink ) is stitching away trying to pretend I'm not taking pictures.

These 2 piccies are of the designers introducing their projects to us.

Last sunday I went to a "Stitchers Dream Day Out " at Highfields QLD put on by the Quilters Angel store with my friend ... Tereasa and it was terrific, this was the 3rd time this event was run and of course we have attended them all. There were 4 designers... Debbie Magee, Leanne May, Libby Richardson and Lesley McConnell all 4 ladies were lovely to chat with and the projects they designed for our day were also fantastic, there would have been approximately 120 ladies at the function with great food and lots of fun, chatting and games. Its certainly a great way to spend the day with friends and do nothing else except stitch.

Well I have been trying to upload piccies tonight without success again so its time for me to go to bed, I'll try to get the photos for this post on tomorrow, have no idea why I'm having all this trouble.. the only thing I can think of is ... we bought a new putor with Vista program but we don't know if this is the reason, hopefully I find out soon as its giving me the pips.
Hooray finally got some piccies up.

2006 Friendship Block swap

This is a project I did with the craft forum in 2006, it is a friendship block swap and I've finally finished and has turned out fairly well.

Noahs Ark BOM

Here is another Noahs Ark block by Lynette Anderson this one fairly quick to do, so now to wait for next months block.

More projects...... finished.. yahoo

" Saltbox House Kit"

I bought this kit from my local craft shop "Raggedy Station" ... it contains fabric and 2 panels, I still have to finish the coasters and pot holders so will post piccies of them soon. This collection is for my daughter .... Heather.... who just happens to be my lovely model holding the bag.

I'm having a lot of problems uploading piccies at the moment so was lucky to get these on my blog, there are more photos to be added of my trip but I don't want to bore you all toooooo much. I also went to " A Stitchers Dream Day Out " last sunday and I will put some photos up of that too, I went with a friend Tereasa and we had a terrific day as usual. I'll keep trying to get my piccies uploaded and hope for more success.

to continue......

These 2 were taken on the "Sound of Music" tour.

The days were very hot but in the distance you can see snow on the mountains, such beautiful scenery.

Here we are deep in a salt mine in Germany.

This is one of many laneways going from street to street, this one would be great with a craft and coffee shop so I could sit and stitch for hours...... ahhhhhh of course it would have to be an iced Latte.

Aussie... Aussie........ marching through the streets of Graz, Austria, for the World Choir Games.

Spanish Riding School, Vienna. This is only a display for the summer, no dancing horses as the stallions are out doing their thing.

A fabulous evening meal with lovely people, then in the concert hall ( pictured below) for a night of terrific music and song.

Well at last a few piccies but its very late and I'm tired, its taken so long to upload these photos, not sure why I am having a problem ..... so I will be back to bore you tomorrow with a few more piccies.

Corinne has the Hawk and Heather with this huge Eagle.

This is a typical building covered with bullet holes.

Heroes Square.

Corinne and Kelsey with their Gold and Silver medals.

Still trying to upload piccies.....

These piccies are in the wrong order but I've been having so much trouble uploading that I will just have to leave them this way... so its my back to front holiday. Isn't this the cutest little muffin.

Beautiful Budapest in the background and my beautiful Corinne and Heather in front.

This Hawk was so soft to touch and aren't I so brave ??????

I'll keep trying to put more piccies in.... sorry about the order, this was our last 3 days of the holiday, we spent 3 days in Budapest... its a lovely place but they have such a sad history.

Back to blogging

This is a bolster cushion I made for my daughter ... Heather.... for her bed, its a "Rivendale Collection" pattern by Sally Giblin called "Friendship" love her designs and they are such good value and a pleasure to make.

Caught up with the Noah's Ark BOM by Lynette Anderson, don't want to get behind and miss all the fun.

Well here I am at last back to my blog but I haven't got piccies of my Austrian trip sorted yet but it won't be long and I will put a few piccies in here just to bore everyone.... not really just kidding.... I will only put in a few. I haven't done very much craft lately but I'm getting back into the swing of things now. I'm working on a shaggy quilt for my husbands Aunt and I should be able to post a piccie here by the end of the week... or at least I hope so.... its getting a bit late for a winter quilt but I'll be early for next season.
I guess thats about it for the moment.
