Pretty things in winter

Posted by PicasaThe winter roses in my garden are just beautiful this year. Inspired by Annie I just had to experiment with the photo's. It has also been a nice day to potter in the garden while the children played with friends.

A passion at the moment is completing stitcheries and then making them into quilts with various patchwork blocks. I enjoy the stitching and then the patchwork side as well. These flower blocks were great to take anywhere.

Back at work

The sewing has slowed down now that term three has begun. Will look forward to the next hol's!!

Have managed to put these bird house blocks together. These were made as friendship blocks with a wonderful group of local ladies. It is so nice to look at and think of everyone in the group.
Off to the craft show in Melbourne next weekend - can't wait!!

The holidays are flying by. I have been busy catching up with friends and some very productive sewing time. A sewing day with the girls was most enjoyable. It has been great spending time at home with the kids. Pa made a puppet theatre for the kids, I made the red curtains with the gold trim (as requested) and my 8 year old girl added the final decorations. I recently took part in a New York Beauties class, so decided to try this pattern using black, red and gold, all different colours for me!

on holidays

I have viewed a few blogs and thought what a great way to share our love for sewing and craft. I am on holidays at the moment and have been spending quite a bit of time sewing and sorting through some UFO's (unfinished objects!!!) It has been lovely and I look forward to a few more days of it to come.
