Grace's quilt is finished (almost - finishing off the binding) - she loves it; I managed to find fabric with bones on for the binding and dog inspired words for the backing LOL


I've also joined the Santa Sack Swap - thought I'd have a practice run with some ideas ......

This fella looks like he's been at the mince pies already!!!

I made 2 small wall hangings to hang either side of a painting of Grace. The blue is reflected in the painting - took me ages to choose the fabric (I think this is option 3!!) but it works really well. Grace loves chooks and  nature hence the final choice of fabric.

Here's the beautiful table runner I received from Larissa - only problem with it is - it now has pride of place in Emily's bedroom on her chest of drawers .......

Rain, glorious rain - we've had 68mm (2 1/2") in 2 days; I know for many in the northern hemisphere that would be a shower but here in very dry South Australia it's torrential rain - that is more rain than the total for 1st Jan - 20th May :) It's also perfect sewing weather. I've finished my swaps for June - Block Swap Australia, Christmas Block Swap, Fat Quarter Swap and Birthday Swaps for Fat Quarters. Next weekend is Grace's turn - finish the Fall Mystery Quilt.

My block for Ruth in Monteview USA - I've never made this block before and I'm really pleased with how it's turned out; it's an Indian Trails Block.

Log cabin for Jen in Allentown but I'm not sure she'll like it :(

Fat Quarters for Vanessa in Werribee, Vic and birthday fat's for Helen 

and Sharon

That's it for now - going to eat cake.... Made by my beautiful daughter Emily :)
