Hi everyone, Thankyou for visiting me again. I have finished another 4 blocks of the Farmer's Wife Quilt Sampler.

I completed one when I went overseas last Friday.  Yep, overseas from Sorrento to Queenscliffe on the ferry to visit the quilting group at Pt Lonsdale, The Lonsdale Lights. About 19 of our patchwork group met at Sorrento for the 9-00am ferry across the great waters to have a day of  chatting, eating and show and tell.  This is an annual trek we make and the Pt Lonsdale girls visit us later in the year. They are a lovely talented bunch of ladies, and we look forward to catching up every year.

I finally completed the last birth sampler and bibs for my newest great niece, Miley. I have made the same birth samplers in different colours and the same bibs for my great nephew, Ondre and other great niece,  Lillah. All 3 babes were born between November and February so I have been rather busy. I like that kind of busy.

The past week I received the 2nd pack from Patchwork with Busyfingers ( Sue Daley)  "Block to Block Fabric Club". This is a monthly club where you receive  8 x  fat 1/8ths of reproduction fabrics  and a couple of block patterns. I shall be hand piecing mine. No surprise there!  The first pack came with some lovely templates which will be useful for a number of projects.

And finally, on a whim, I bought this cute little tray today.

   Until next time, angel blessings to you all.


  1. You are on a roll with your FW blocks. The bibs and sampler are lovely. You certainly have been kept busy.

  2. You will soon have the FW quilt finished!! I love the sampler; is that a shade of purple!!?? Such a cute tray, I love that.
    I will admit to laughing at your trip overseas ... a little like Perth to Rottnest, though that is a trip I haven't made.

  3. Lovely blocks, Ondrea. And the tray is just beautiful. :)
    Gorgeous Birth sampler too. Gee you get so much done, I feel like the " slacker of the Century". ;)

  4. Your FW blocks look great, I need to get back to mine at some point... Thanks for your regular visits to my blog and your nice comments. I couldn't reply directly as you are a no-reply blogger!
    Happy quilting
