Bramble Rose Quilt

I went to the local craft weekend yesterday...and these were my buying.
These fabrics were a fat 1/8th pack from patchwork dreaming.
The pattern is from Crabapple Hill...called brambles rose quilt.
I came home and started cutting out the blocks
from the fabric...adding some fabric I already had.

that's me...

We bought a new printer/scanner...that's me at 3 1/2 years.
Taken at North Creek...still a favourite beach spot.
I love how there is a reflection in the wet sand.

boxes quilt

This is my very simple boxes quilt ...
I was inspired to make this from my quilt friend Janet's version in red and white.
I started with this Japanese dragonfly fabric...then added the colours in it.

One hyacinth out in flower...the perfume is beautiful.

dandelions and spring

It must be the spring like weather we are having...
I have been cleaning, dusting and rearranging
While we were out today, I found this dandelion print at target
I had just the place for it to go...
replacing a couple of small faded prints

dandelions for making a wish

new shoes

My husband had a cast made of his feet today...
this is to have shoes made especially to fit his feet.
These shoes will help him be able to walk.
Then we went for a walk (and wheelchair) along the beautiful river..

candied hexagon quilt

I would really like (love) to have a copy of this magazine
Australian Quilters Companion vol 5.2 issue 18
if anyone would like to sell or trade for a copy...
please email me

Ever since I discovered the candied hexagon's been my latest obsession.
Though I'm not usually obsessive!
I have been making these being stripes and spots and all different.
I am going to make the quilt with a beach theme.

this and that

...we went to the movies on Friday to see my sister's keeper.
being a Jodie Picott fan!
on the way out of the theatre the ticket man said 'did we use all our tissues'
..wasn't expecting that comment.

I have been busy sewing, cooking, cleaning, gardening and appointments.
The weather has been beautiful...too nice to be inside.
I just need to take some photos.

We went for a walk along the beautiful river...
the weather has been just wonderful for a couple of weeks.
Toes in the sand...that's joy!
