Block Month 1

                                                                                                                                                                                         
I just love getting goodies in the mail. And getting your starter pack for a BOM would have to be there at the top of that loving feeling.

My sister Debbie told me about this BOM that she is going to make. How could I not join in and have the same fun that making hexi's brings.

There is eight months to this BOM and the first month arrived today. The above photo shows you what is in the pack.

The BOM is by Sue Daley and it's called This Goes With That. I have ordered mine through The Patch Work Cow.

Stay tuned for some awesome hexi's in the future.

Second Cushion.





 Second cushion finished and already being used in the lounge room.

I can't get over what a productive day I had yesterday. Binding finished on the table runner, which I ended up giving to James and Tamara for their house. Tamara's cushion put together and completed and the binding done on my cushion.

Makes me a happy girl.

Couple Of Finished Items.


 So pleased to be able to show you a couple of completed items. These have been sitting or hanging on my table or coat hanger for ages. Just so happy to see them finished and being able to be used.

Back in 2009 I started making  a Dear Jane quilt and had no idea what I was getting into. I wasn't happy with the needle turn in my blocks and so I started from scratch.

Not liking waste I decided to turn the blocks into a couple of cushions. A quilter can never have too many cushions laying around the house.




One of the two cushions finished and this one is for my daughter-in-law Tamara. The other one I have just the hand binding to be done and that one is mine.


 Table runner finally completed and ready for use. I started these blocks back 2 winters ago and it was packed away when Pat was hospitalized with pneumonia.

I am sure you can relate to my statement of, "feels so good to have a UFO finished". My white board list is looking must better and more items crossed off.
