Home for a quick visit..

I am away working in Melbourne at the moment, so time when I do get home on the weekends time is very precious. Do I sew, so I make jewellery, or do I just try and catch up on some rest and with friends?
Here I am just touching base with my jewels. Won't be too long now, and I can get right into this creating business.

Moda Bake Shop Love Pin Win!

There are not many competitions that I enter. Basically I don't consider myself a lucky person, so I think mostly I am wasting my time. However, this is one competition I thought would be well worth wasting some time over! A combination of Pinterest and Modabakeshop, what could be better really??? Well, yes there are other great combinations out there, Gin and Tonic is the first one that springs to mind!
So, here is my first Pin to Win entry.

I love this quilt because it is open to so many colour/theme combinations, it looks to be quick and simple and a lot of fun. I can see great potential here to play with colour, especially with changing the white as a solid. Best of all, it would be a great scrap muncher!

Way tooo Long

It has been way to long since I have blogged. It really is very simple. If i don't write, there is nothing to read, end of blog. Many things have happened, there has been a lot of water under the bridge, I have been away, but now it is time to regroup and get on with it!
First, time to show off the finished quilt top for my 15 year old son, a 'London' quilt. London because that was his favourite place on a recent trip overseas, because he was born on the day Diana died, and because he was named after his English Grandfather.
I really hope he likes it, you just never know with 15 year old teenage boys!
Here is the photo.
I used Elizabeth Hartman's Avalon Pattern, a favourite of mine.
