The cleaning be done for the week it is time to sew!

Today I made astart to my schnitzelandboo swap mini quilt. I had an idea in my head, I saw a similar quilt in a magazine, I gathered some black tone on tone fabric and started cutting and sewing. Well it isn't like I planned in my head but its getting there.
I was reading a blog yesterday where the writer only buys fabric as she needs it , phh, and she always forgets the binding, I always forget the binding and backing.

Oh My!!!!!

it has been a long time since I have been here. I blame work and instagram they both take up too much of my time.
I have been doing a lot of sewing.
Rearranging of my room. Shane moved in and Brad moved out
Brad is buying a motorbike today OMG the worry will be worse now


The pics above are of the quilt that took me 18 years to finish, but Shane loves it. The lovely flowers for my birthday from my big sis.A quick trip to Berry for the Modern quilt show and a stop at Haven and Space. some happy mail from Susan and the cute pincushion for my birthday. The gorgeous bargain bag I got on ebay. Doing some of my dear jane blocks and a bit of colouring at work it was very enjoyable.
