Busy Stitching!

Thanks to all who commented on my previous post - it is so nice to be in Blogland again. We have QuiltWest coming up in a few weeks and Sweetie, Cat Connelly long arm quilted this quilt. Dear friend Robin stitched the binding on by machine, so now for me to finish.
I am not going to answer any phone calls or door knocks (lol!) so here's to a busy day.
Happy Stitching - Lurline!

My Wish!

Trying to post the easy way ... is there one?

The Title is there and the Signature is there - and a pic is there - yay!
So much has happened in my life - I've been on a downward spiral as a carer for so long. Things haven't changed - well, maybe my determination to try to regain who I am has.
I was fortunate enough to be able to squeeze in a trip to Melbourne recently - beautiful rellies made my trip so peaceful, relaxing and enjoyable. I squeezed in a trip to the quilt show and a lovely few days in the Highlands of Victoria.
I did come home with goodies - books, patterns and fabric of course! I met the delightful Kathy Doughty in person - now that was a buzz as we have been in touch for many years. I already owned her book, so here is a beautiful accent floral - have some lovely fabrics to make a Wagga!
PS - sort run in to problems! Hope this publishes nicely and would love to be abe to visit again tomorrow - have really missed Blogland xx

Trying to Improve!

I was thrilled to receive this book yesterday and the fabric earlier in the week - both tell you a little about themselves. After I have finished piecing my Courthouse Steps, I really want to see if I can create an improv quilt for DS's birthday next year. As much as I love modern, can I live with wonky? I feel sure Lucie's book will help in the confidence area - a gorgeous book!
This soft coral of the fabric is my favourite hue at the moment and Art Gallery, my very favourite line of fabric for feel, beautifully fine and soft.
Blogger - well, could talk for an hour on that. Time is too precious these days for the time the old way takes, so I have chosen the quick, practical, alternative. I will try to find the info to present more attractive posts, even if it is in bed late at night.
For now - happy stitching - Lurline!

Let's Try!

An oldie but a cutie published in DUQ - even in those days I loved bright, fresh moderns!
Now this is my recent choices - a courthouse steps block inspired by Molly Flanders and Purl Bee - let's hope it grows into a lap quilt that I have quilted with Perle thread.
Lastly a lovely pack of low volume I received from Polka Dot Tea Fabrics a couple of lovely Australian girls - great fabrics and the best service too
