A New Year

Hello Friends

Here we are in February - good grief!! Time to make an update before another month goes by.

Last year I had a couple of finishes which now that they've been gifted I can share.

Firstly, French Mosaic a Karen Cunningham design started in 2012 as Summer School was completed & given to my sister for her 60th Birthday in January. I used predominantly French General fabrics and changed the design layout (slightly). The label is a doiley made by my Grandmother on my dad's side who I never knew, but my sister has fond memories of her so thought she'd appreciate its use on her quilt.


The special man in my life has quite a liking to the Confederate Flag. On finding a pattern for making such a thing I ventured into making something completely different. Lots of measuring, cutting, stitching, cutting, stitching & so on. However I was extremely dissapointed & needless to say angry that there was a major error in the pattern which couldn't been rectified as only appeared at end completion.

JA had been talking about making a "Frozen" quilt for her grand-daughter and on a trip away had managed to find a panel & some fabrics. A very good friend's daughter loves Frozen so much I decided to do the same. She was thrilled & wraps herself in it every night, even though in Australia it is Summer!



Now they are out the way I'm currently working on Something About Florence a design by  Susan Smith. JulieAnn is also making this one, we are both very excited to be attending Susan's workshop in March for The Prince. Nothing beats a new project!!

To finish a picture taken at Southwest Rocks on the northern NSW coast while visiting my sister for her birthday. A beautiful little part of our country not yet over commercialised and hopefully stays that way.

And of course Angus has to have an appearance, this being his Christmas shot.

Til next time, happy stitching
