A good day to quilt

June 09, 2013 3 Comments

Hello Everyone

It is such a dreary day today, after the glorious day of sunshine we had yesterday. It has rained all night, I love the sound of rain on the roof while I am snuggled up in bed warm as toast.

Today I have the fire going and the crockpot on with a lovely stew. The only thing left to do is sit at my machine and quilt. Gotta love days like this.

Somehow even tho the weather is awful living by the water there is always something worth looking at.

This is my effort, now to finish it and send it off. The challenge is with 'Aotearoa Quilters' I have not entered in any challenges before so this is a first for me. It will be really interesting to see what everyone comes up with.

Looking forward to your comments

Happy Stitching

Sharon

That’s a beautiful RED block. I’ll look out for it at Symposium.

I have been missing in action for a few days....... do you get withdrawal symptoms when you don't get to sew?... I do. Seriously I'm addicted!

Today is a good day, I am in my happy place at the sewing machine. My machine is cleaned and oiled, with a new needle and I am ready to go. I plan to get busy finishing the flying geese units for the final border on my Vintage Nine Patch Quilt.

This month (January) the Small Wonders Club quilt pattern is called 'Rose of Thorns'. I am in love with this little quilt it has all my favourite colours in it and of course a little applique too. I think I'm also addicted to Flying Geese blocks, they are so cute in the border. Rose Of Thorns measures 22 inches square.
