...there is a univeral language between women when they craft and come
together in this passion. It unites women in a place that takes them from the
woes of everyday life and provides fortitude and strength to each other through
unspoken word - it is as if each stitch taken together strengthens our bound and
friendship. Please join me on the journey and let us inspire each other........

Finally some finishes......!!

It seems like a long time since I had a finish and finally several things are coming together. If "Joy's Quilts" still had her finishing stitches challenges running this month I would be looking good! Shame?!

These are a set of wall hangings that I prepared about 6 months ago in preparation for my sister's birthday last friday! Well I finished them today!! Better late than never...............I got my inspiration when we were using her spare room and I felt the decor could use a little updating, then came home and in the next issue of homespun, there was this pattern - her walls in that room are blue, so i hope the blue in the canvases pick this up. But pink and green are her favourites, so these fabrics seemed perfect to fit the bill! Don't worry she doesn't do internet so I haven't spoiled the surprise!

If you remember I was making a bright star quilt that I started in the September school holidays - I have now finished the machine quilting (this took a while!), attached the binding and am on the home stretch to finishing it with some hand stitching on the binding to go. I have about a week and half to have this accomplished - dead lines!!

Next I have a preview of what I am currently working on - a christmas present for someone special in the family...............can't give any more away yet but will show you when i have it finished.

Lastly I want to introduce you to my best friend and trusty work horse "Phebe". She is my pride and joy. I was fortunate enough to be allowed to purchase her last year at the AQC and she has not failed me since. A machine dedicated to patchwork & quilting, she is just a dream to drive. Thanks for your help Phebe.

Well nice talking again. Hope I have got you inspired. Back soon with some more accomplishments I hope!! And well......maybe I had better find time to write reports too for work! How inconvenient!!
