PROJECT 48 QUILT BLOCKS


Block 22 of the Project 48 Quilt, I had this block cut out for a few weeks and just didn't want to tackle it as there were so many pieces and a lot of ladies had made comments about the difficulty of the block.  I had a few hours spare yesterday so decided to "give it a go", well it took me 2-1/2 hours
and had to unpick the first round of blue pieces from the white blocks as I'd sewed them to the wrong sides of the white blocks.  I'm really happy with the end result of this block, it certainly tested my patience.  I am glad I did it but there will not be any others of this one again................

NO FUSS SWAPPERS - ROADTRIP SWAP

Another wonderful swap organised by the "No Fuss Swappers" ladies, this time it was a "Roadtrip" swap. 
I received these gifts from Teresa.

                                      

I sent these gifts to Susan. I wrapped the gifts in a fat quarter of fabric.


I forgot to take a photo before I sent the gifts to Susan, so these photos are courtesy of Susan minus the packet of lollies.



Happy Friday, have a great weekend.

CROCHETING

I started this Entrelac project last year and finally completed it a couple of weeks back, I just love it and I think it would make a lovely pram rug. I now just have to weave in the ends.


This is my current crochet project which I started just over a week ago.  I really love it, it's so happy and colourful, although I'm not looking forward to weaving in the ends. 


Hugs

NEW MACHINE

My dream for over 25 years has been to own a Janome Memory Craft, unfortunately at this time my dream has not been fulfilled as they are still are still way out of my budget however I wanted to upgrade my machine and this is my retirement pressie to me.  A Janome Skyline S5which finally arrived on Friday 29 July.



This is my previous machine, a Toyota Quiltmaster, it has been a great machine over the past several years and sewn many Quilts and Laundry Bags for Aussie Heroes as well as many other projects.


This is my new baby, I just love her..............


Although she is not a Memory Craft, there are lots of stitches she can do.


I tested out quite a few of the stitches on a sampler. I just love how much quitter my Janome is and sews so beautifully.


It seems I will have to make a new cover as this one is a wee bit small...


A secret Santa project - ummm.........

CLAYTON'S CHRISTMAS SWAP

For the first time I have joined the "No Fuss Swappers" in an on line swap.  Today we opened our "Clayton's Christmas Swap" pressie.  YAY so exciting, this is what my parcel looked like before I unwrapped it.. sooo pretty.


This is what was inside, a pretty angel for the Christmas tree, a cute wooden Santa button and a yummy chocolate all wrapped in a lovely maroon colour fabric. My gift came from Julz over at Simple Stitches, thank you Julz.


This was such a fun swap, I am joining the "No Fuss Swappers" in their next little adventure.

Cheers

DECLUTTERING CRAFT BOOKS - GRAB A BARGAIN - FREE

We have been decluttering our whole house over the past 10 days, I had a BIG clean out in my craft room and have decided to declutter all of my craft books as well.  I am prepared to give away all of the following craft books to good homes although as postage is so expensive you will need to pay $10 for a max of 5 books.  Please also feel free to BLOG about this great offer to your friends.  There is quite a variety of craft books here, something to suit everyone really.






















These two books are not for free as they were quite expensive, I am prepared to let them both go for $15 (so essentially $7.50 each) plus $10 postage.  If you are a folk art painter or know someone that paints these books are extremely cheap..


Happy Monday everyone,.

Cheers
