As usual I currently have many projects on the go and I am sure most of you can identify with that First I want to show you the little doily I made for her birthday pressie. A while back I showed you a glimpse of 2 pressies I had made . This was one of them and the other one was for Barb. I stitched Barb's all in red because she is a red and white fan. but Vicki's is in more muted colours. It is a Leanne Beasley pattern that was in one of the Vignette mags.

I have been hand piecing a Shoo Fly dolls quilt from one of my Civil War books. I am stitching the last block and just need to cut and stitch the sashings ,corner stones and borders. I have used Civil War repro fabrics and you know how much I love them. They are 4 1/2 " blocks.

In my last post I showed you some funky fabrics I bought on my travels for my Crazy Cats quilt which was a free BOM on Syverstan Quilting . I have been happily appliquing 7 of the blocks . This one is almost complete except for his eyes and nose.

Here are 4 more. I am currently appliquing the one with the fish in his tummy.

I have also been knitting another scarf. I couldn't resist this yarn from Spotty. I am going to stitch the 2 ends together forming a loop so I can hang it around my neck and just loop it once around . Easy to pull off when I have a momentary personal summer!

And here is a pic of the EPP bedside table runner I have almost completed. I am just stitching the edges now.

I forgot to take a pic of the 3rd Celtic Knot block I made but shall show it to you next time. Thanks for visiting . Many angel blessings to you all.

 Ooops!!! It has been a while since my last blog entry but I have been busy. Where have I been? I have been on a retreat at Rawson Village with one of my patchwork groups back in April and we made a few stops at patchwork shops along the way and on our return trip. I also went to the AQC with another group where I managed to buy more things. Then I went to a Vic Quilters gathering in Stawell and stayed overnight in Ballarat. Ofcourse, there was more shopping on this trip too. On the way back we called into Mill Rose Cottage where Barb joined us for lunch and afternoon tea. Yes, I did buy more things there too!!!

So, here are some pics of some yummy fabrics and patterns, These are for 4 separate projects.

(The fur in the foreground is my cat!) The next is a pic of some yummy delph fabrics that have been on my list for a while. 

 I couldn't resist more Sashiko , Gail Pan's new Christams book, Rosie Quinlan's hexie stitcheries , a cute little project from Marg Low AND a gorgeous pattern for a child's quilt called "Once Upon a Time".

I couldn't resist this Japanese bag pattern to make with the Japanese charm squares I have had for a couple of years. I love these detachable bag handles too.

These kitty cats were mewing at me from a shelf at the patchwork shop in Warragul. They just leapt out at me . Really! 

These funky fabrics are for my Crazy Cats quilt with the 2 light fabrics as the backgrounds. I found them at Eureka Patchwork in Ballarat. 
Found more Delph!!!

Remember that child's quilt pattern I mentioned earlier? Well, I found some wonderful Kaffe Fasset fabrics for it. Now I can start doing the stitcheries . Yey!
The joke is that I have no grandchildren yet and the  grandma hormones have kicked in really badly.So, I have decided to start making quilts and putting them away . They will then magically appear when the time comes. Hehehehe.

The Cosmo threads are for another project.
Last but not least , a cute little tin I bought as well.

Oops. A bit blurry.

Next time I promise I will have some pics of some finished projects and some new ones started. Thanks for visiting again. Angel Blessings.
