Early this week I was lucky to catch up with Gail Pan again. Gail was the guest speaker at one of my patchwork groups so I was eager to see all her wonderful creations again and buy some more of her fabric line.  Take a wander over to Gail's blog to see what she has been up to. She certainly is a very busy gal!  Look at this wonderful array of loveliness.

Ofcourse, I had to get a pic of us together.
 ( Ooops! A wee bit small but you can click on them to see them better.)
The last couple of weeks have been quite exciting stitching- wise. Last week I went on a mystery bus tour with another of my patchwork groups ,( yes, I am in all 3 down here), and came home with some more goodies. We went to Lilly Patches in Boronia, Gail B's in Bayswater, a beautiful Native Nursery in Mt Evelyn for a scrumptious lunch  enhanced by a glass of champers, followed by a stop at Craft Quarters in KooWeeRup  and the final stop at the Sewing Connection in Pakenham. Whew! A very tiring but worthwhile fun day.
This is a cute little owl I bought at the nursery to add to my collection. He just hooted at me to buy him so what could a girl do?
I found some more repro fabrics, another hanger for my little quilts, some Lynette Anderson ribbons and a Tilda fat 1/4. 
Oh dear! Another Christmas pattern!. For someone who was never really into Christmas, stitching has certainly changed that. I especially love red and white fabrics and projects.
The Cottage Garden Thread colour is" Hugs and Kisses" and I really like working with it.
Even though I am still making the borders of my last little Civil War quilt I decided to start another one. I was itching to cut some more fabrics and then I couldn't resist piecing them so here is the start of my newest one.
 Thanks for stopping by to visit. Angel Blessings.
