Hello everyone I'm so happy I finally finished "Laura's Quilt".  I love how it turned out.  I'll be giving it to her tomorrow for her birthday she is turning 9 so I hope she likes it.  This is the first time I've quilted a quilt this large and it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be.  It was a great learning experience. 

I found a blog of a lady from the US she is like a machine producing quilt after quilt.  She is a very nice lady and she gave me some advice and her tutorials were very helpful.  Go and visit Amandajean's blog she is very talented.  Her blog name really suits her  Crazy Mom Quilts.

Here it is freshly washed and hanging on the line.

Now for my next project.  I have so many custom orders I still haven't had a chance to work on my quilt for the "It's All About Me" party Natasha was hosting.  I'm too late.......bummer but I will make it and show it off soon.   I better stop staring and start sewing!!!!!

Have a great weekend.

Spring is finally here.  Well it started a few weeks ago but I've been too busy to notice.  On the weekend I had some time to relax and take it all in.  I picked these gorgeous roses from my mum's garden which were grown from a cutting from my uncle's garden.  I have put in my order.

And I picked these Birds of Paradise from my garden. 

I have about 20 Iceberg Roses planted in my front garden and they have lots of buds so they should be blooming soon.  I love my roses I'll take some photos when they have all come out.

A few weeks ago my hubby finally hung this gorgeous painting up that I bought from Gail.  I love it displayed above my crystal cabinet.  Gail is a very talented artist go and check out her website.

Hope you all have a great week.

Hi everyone I hope you are all well. I haven't had a chance to blog for a while too busy sewing.

Just wanted to share some photos of the Oh Cherry Oh quilt I've been working on. I've finally started quilting it and I'm really happy with how the quilting is turning out.  I've done a simple quilting pattern of wavy lines down the quilt.  You can click on the photos to get a closer look.

I'll be back in a few days to post photos of a finished quilt.

Have a great weekend.

Nothing new has been happening around here just lots of the same old same old....SEWING. I have received a big custom order so I have been working on that and I am trying to get the quilt finished that I blogged about in my last post. Haven't even started sewing my quilt for the "It's All About Me" party. The fabrics are all cut but I haven't even had a chance to touch them. I will try and get at least a few blocks done before the deadline.

Here is the quilt so far with sashings.

Cushions I have been working on.

School holidays are over YEAH!!!! As much as I've loved having the kids home and the sleep ins I'm glad they are going back on Monday I am exhausted and broke!!!!!. Everyday there have been lots of activities. Movies, cooking sessions, visits to the park, Sovereign Hill, Old Melbourne Goal, Shrine of Rememberance, walks around the block, friends visiting and don't forget McDonalds and Subway. I need a holiday.

Hope you all have a great weekend.
