Samuels Birthday

My Grandson Samuel had his 4th birthday on the 12th of January, here is his cake that his mum made, Samuel washed the cars so they could go on the cake.

Medallion Round Robin 2009

This is my centre for the round robin that I am in from the craft forum. I can hardly wait for it to come back to me.

My Granddaughter Olivia

I had to add this, I made a little jumpsuit for my Granddaughter Olivia for her second birthday, I did not want to put up a picture until after her birthday.
Olivia and her mum loved it.
I found the fabric in Spotlight in the $1 bin, it wasnt cotton, but I just love blues and it was very nearly a metre. Just had to have it. Then my brother in laws girlfriend gave me heaps of patterns for little peoples clothes, and that was that.

Gingerbread house

My Christmas gift from my daughter for this year was a ginger bread house. (I love gingerbread)
The roof was made out of those sweet/sour type lollies, very yummy

My work space

This is my workspace, Horn cabinet, machine (Janome Quilters Companion) and my swivel chair, one spin and I am on the computer directly behind me.

The ironing board near the window and I hang/pin partly completed projects on the curtains so that they can "talk" to me. I did make myself up a board to use as a design wall, but I had nowhere to put it, so it now lives in the shed.

And here is my cutting table which at the moment occupies my daughters room while she is away.

Fabric Swap Quit

At the begining of 2008 I joined in a fabric swap, it was 3 inch strips, I added to what I got and designed a block on my EQ6 and this is the outcome. It is going to make it's home in Tasmania with my son and his wife. I am very happy with how this turned out.

Konrad's Big Boy Quilt

I have had the occasion to go into my stash, (OK I was looking for something and couldn't find it) and found a basket full of quilt tops that needed quilting, there was four, I finished one.
This one I started earlier in the year for my youngest grandson Konrad for his first birthday, I was just a little late with it, he got it for Christmas.
My Big Brother wanted it for himself, he is into VW's

Jade the black poodle pup

One of our Puppies named jade is going to our niece, so I thought that I would make a little doggie blanket up for her, this is the result.

My neice was very impressed that her puppy had her own quilt. I machine sewed the whole thing, even the binding so that it could just go in the wahsing machine when dirty.

About Me

We reside in a tiny town near the Snowy Mountains in NSW My Passion is creating, the only time I am not is when it gets too hot and then I am just listless. I usually have far to many projects going at once, because there is always one more that catches my eye.
