Bed Runner

I had a heaps of Batik bits left over, so when I saw this pattern I just had to try it, it is going to be a runner for the back of a bed, next will be a small black border, and then........not sure yet, I will work it out as I go. Nothing like working it out when I get there, I very rarely use a pattern now a days.

Todays happenings

Our wood shed is full, don't have to worry about winter now, it is that full that the chopping block is outside the door. Jade our youngest poodle is standing guard.

Not much happening

It has been one of those weeks, I have had no inspiration at all in the actual sewing feild, I have however been "playing" with my EQ7 and come up with a few potentials. The first two are for my neice, I havent got the right shades for them yet and the centre will be slightly different, she wants purple. The two bottom ones I am going to try (one day) to make.

Two Dollars worth of quilt

Last year while browsing at Vinnies I found some blue fabric all bits and also some bright yellow, it cost me $2 altogether, so after a little figuring I made it into a quilt. This is for my Poodles, they love getting under something warm at night, and I really don't like sharing with them, so now they have their own.

That is four of the quilts done, I have one more small one and then I will have to extend the frame or get very innovative

New Shop

There is a lovely new shop opened. All sorts of wonderful Fabric. Check it out here It is called Raggedy Station

Medallion Round Robin for 2010

I have finally finished my medallion for last year, all it needs now is the label sewn on (when I find it). It turned out really lovely, it is a little darker in real life.
