I am a maker of items who now can say, a maker of quilts as well.

On Tuesday and Friday when I go to my dear friends house for quilting I like to take a stitchery as its so much easier to transport and do at the tables.
Not sure how long I have been working on my first wall hanger, but its almost finished.
I chose a different colourway to the designer's colours. I used Moda Aster Manor and matched up the DMC threads.
Now you maybe wondering what I am going to be taking next time I head off to quilting? There is a new project in the wings and I have started to get things rolling in the sewing room.
Remember these fabrics I rewarded myself with for loosing those 2 kilo? Well they are starting me off while I wait until next payday, to order more Moda Rural Jardin from America in a fortnight.
First time I will be ordering yardage fabric overseas and I'm pretty darn excited about it. I am always supporting the quilting shops here in Adelaide, but this time round I'm putting my $$$ where I can get more for my bucks.
Oh I haven't told you want I am going to make with it have I???? Silly me!!!!
Life Is Beautiful I think this site has the best photos of the quilt for you to see. Just scroll down past all the Japanese quilts and you can see it. There is a quilt in Japanese fabric and 2 in Moda French General fabrics.
I love organic gardening, crafts and writing about my pig's adventures. Also I have a HUGGLES For Kids as an ongoing appeal. All kids love to HUGGLE a softie. If you want to make some and send them to me....email me.
