A very satisfying session with my sewing machine.

12 Jane blocks, and

24 geese blocks.

And the machine unpacked and left open again.

At quilt challenge

I have been working on my art quilt challenge, that is due to be finished at the end of the month.

It is a representative self portrait.

It is to depict the complexity of my personality and its predisposition to be dark rather than light.

For followers of the art quilts around the world, this reveal is a little further along.

Finally found the machine ...

Before I pack up my sewing room, which is really the dining room off our kitchen, I had to do some work.

So, completed 12 or so Jane diamonds, and several goose blocks. Very enjoyable.

And now my cabinet is all packed up. Boo hoo.

Raffle winner

My Christmas quilt was well received.

The winner specifically came up to me and thanked me for the quilt.

Very gratifying.

Well, it is the first of December.

So, it must be the time for raffle quilts for our local kids Christmas night.

It just makes you want to hum ... Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas .....

Another charity quilt ...

Today I made a 12" block - woven  ribbons.

I was in a block swap and the final block was my own choice.

All the blocks are lovely, though one doesn't fit really well, so I haven't decided if I will use it, or make another one.

The camera makes my beiges quite yellow ....

Bag of Dollies

I am making Lucy a bag full of dollies. I made the bag, nigh on twelve months ago, and am finally getting around to the dolls. At five inches tall and dressed - let's just say they are .... fiddly.

Jane's quilt.

The other traditional quilt I am working on is a Jane Austen - like quilt.

In pansies, of course.

Mum bought me the pattern and templates years ago  and finally, it is on its way.

Cottage garden

Just for Robyn.

Here is the latest quilt I have started work on. A traditional piece of goose blocks.

I bought a set of fat quarters years ago with this lap quilt inn mind and this is the first block.

Found some matching pieces of fabric the other day in mum's stash, and guess what, they are in mine now. Ha ha.
