I am working on Anni Downs new quilt "Gossp in the Garden" with some fellow Sunday Stitchers.

Poor Cheryl has been a little time poor so didn't quite get a start on it.  The aim was to have at least made a start on this block before our last meet up but Helen  made me stand in the naughty corner as well because I hadn't finished like the others had....

I am pleased to say that now this block is at the right stage

and yesterday I finished off the block for this month (with more than a week to spare!)

This is such a fun quilt to work on - I might even start the next bit early......

March Madness

I can't believe that today is the first of April...they say time flies when you are having fun!  Most of March was fun for me (surrounded by some normal mundane stuff).

For the third year in a row I went to Let's Get Stitched.  This year was hosted in Melbourne.  An absolutely fantastic weekend with lots and lots of lovely ladies and most of it spend laughing!

Sunday Stitching Day attendees

It was so great to catch up with old friends and make some new ones too.

I did also celebrate a birthday while in Melbourne.  There were some "happy birthday to me" moments whilst out and about shopping" and I was also spoilt with loads of hugs from these ladies and some gifts as well.  Home to more gifts so a very spoilt person I am!

My online group birthday theme this year was a black and white bag....and this is what Roseanne sent to me

Then there were the fat quarters that rolled in all month

Here are Teresa and I at Sunday Stitchers - we have just finished opening our birthday fat quarters.

Well I think that is enough from me for now....hopefully I will get back to the blog to update the sewing things that I have been doing very soon.
