Last night was Friday night and I decided to abondon The Great Sewing Room Clean Up so I could spend a bit of quality time bonding with my new girl.

It was like sewing 101 for beginners with scrap fabric and the instruction book not far away.

Im sure we will become inseperable very very soon, however today is back to the clean up.

Nothing is coming back into the room without a designated home and now the curtains are replaced with shade cloth screens the light in here is amazing

Trip Around the World

A few weeks ago I completely finished my hand stitched trip around the world quilt. I loved the process of the hand stitching and did quite a bit of it while away camping.
Cross hatch quilting certainly took awhile and with this one I certainly embraced the process of "make do" ... rows with different squares, batting joined together, pieced backing, and about three different threads for the quilting
The last square ready to be stitchedn
Found this great place for pucs of finished top when away .. the cows looking too

Crinkly quilty goodness after washing

A dress and a new fur baby

Not the weekend just gone but the one before I had a sewing finish ... a dress for me.

I would like to introduce you all to Cheddar, our new furbaby. He is a little ball of fluff and has been with us a week and settled in very nicely.

The Festival of De

This past week I have had a birthday and in recent years the festivities  tend to cover much more than one day!

I went to work on the actual day wearing my "steel cap party shoes. One of my very dear work friends has a birthday on the same day so it was a bit of a party environment (and maybe slightly unproductive)

Was spoilt by the family and then spent the rest of the evening packing to head to Tassie to not only spend the weekend with my Mum and Dad but also for Lets Get Stitched.

I have been thoroughly spoiled by everyone!
