Everything is buzzing! Such a busy time of year - oh, yes, I still have things to do. Meanwhile, I have decided to stick with my x and + blocks, at least one each day, come hell or high water, lol! Julie will be happy to hear this and so will Cathy. I think I'm on the right track, maybe one black cross to each three or four blocks of other colours.

Hmmm, Blogger is hopping all about the place - never mind! I have dragged out two cross stitch decorations done many years ago - how wonderful they don't fade! Both are of very vintagey Santas.
Hugs - Lurline♥

Mummsyblossom's World. Below starting from the left - Robin who has put sooo much work into the organization, a wonderful friend. Then we have Moi!, then Barb, being silly, I know but I just love it, I knew she was up to some nonsense - Barb quilted my quilt and we are all so lucky to have Barb with us - a great organizer, too and sort of Mother Hen to all of us, and I mean that in the nicest way!
I'm battling away with new computer and seem to be getting there though very time consuming, let's hope all the pennies drop soon - for now Happy Day!

Perhaps a brave step, but I am enjoying it! This is a small quilt designed by Sarah Fielke and shown in her book Quilting from little things ... This book has quite a few great projects, so all in all a good investment! The eagle has been pressed over freezer paper and is ready for stitching tonight. Then to quilt - will it be by machine or Perle 8 by hand - we'll see how we go for time. I really do like the pieced background - gives me itchy fingers to do more!

Bad luck seems to be following me, so even being able to have a little chat is welcome and makes my day brighter. I have been unable to post for over a week and then all of a sudden late yesterday everything came good - fingers crossed it is onwards and upwards from here on in!
I had finished another circle Monday evening and was happily driving to Mandurah to do a little shopping on Tuesday when BANG! - my car crashed into another - now I'm a very sad little black duck as I have a fractured sternum. Lots of bad pain and a hospital stay and I am still here and very grateful about that. So let's think about pretty quilts and fabrics - it really does ease the pain a little.
I'm so sorry I haven't posted Giveaways, etc - I was going to pick up some packaging when I got to the post office - didn't make it sadly!

Now you can see what I have done with my two Keiko Goke fabrics, did I tell you I have ordered more, I'm smitten? - kinda cute, huh! The start of an Album Block quilt - could be? And I think the time has come ... I am starting to fall in love ... with my new Janome, whew! thank goodness. While I have been ratting around in my cupboards (again), I have come across the start of a Stars and Sprigs quilt - sadly it will never be, but I really can't leave this sitting in a cupboard - let's see what I can make with perhaps one more applique block!

Here we are - congratulations to the following two girls - Celia from Quilting By Celia and Kerry from A Little Stitching . Celia has won the Owl Kit and Kerry The Sherbet Pips! Thank you to all who have entered - I have spent a lot of time browsing new blogs and making new friends, just lovely - I wish I could have given you all prizes, lol!
There's been a few things going on and as you can see a little retail therapy, too. Another gorgeous book by Suzuko Koseki and two great fabrics by Keiko Goke which I love! Cathy from Cabbage Quilts led me astray and I just had to try - oh, yes I love! And, oh - the white background fabric, just gorgeous with cute little dragonflys, I would have bought metres if there had been more on the bolt. Top r/h corner - just a little sneak peek!
Happy day everyone - I think I am off to one very untidy studio!

Goodness me - I really enjoy stitching these circles - lovely applique which I love! I didn't realize I had now finished four - the top right just this afternoon. I have broken away from The Circle Game - a bit typical of me with BOM's - I have convinced myself I just don't have the staying power - says she - wait until we see what 2012 brings! With this particular circle, I work on two rounds of fabrics and place the templates on top - it works for me and it is nice to veg out on when chatting at my sewing groups. How many more will I do?
