I received a lovely block from Debbie in the UK today, through IFQ's Mosaic Block Swap. I was a little concerned that it got lost as it took about three weeks to arrive but here it is. It's much more orange in real life, and so lovely.
And here is a sneak peek of my September Christmas block for Rosemary. I did finish it last night before midnight, so just in time! I'll post it this afternoon so she'll hopefully receive it early next week.

And here is the one Donna made for me:
Before the end of September, I need to make Rosemary's Christmas block and a log cabin for Virginia. My nieces also have their 13th birthday this month, so I need to get their gifts organised. The scary thing is that I will be going back to work soon which means I will have a lot less quilting time. Aargh!

I have also done a block for Alex, through Quilting Block Swaps Australia, but it's a surprise one, so I can't put a picture up until she receives it!

MIL Truedy and I had two great days - the first shopping and doing workshops and the second looking at the quilts. We've decided that next year we are going to do it in three days, and not take Liam! There were a number of workshops we were interested in doing, but didn't have time for. We learned two quilt as you go techniques, as well as paper piecing hexagons. I can see why hexagons can be so addictive!
One of the things I bought which I am most excited about is an 'in the ditch' foot for my sewing machine. I also got a white fabric marker as a free gift which will be fabulous for Lesley's birthday quilt, as it's on a black background.
Here's the goodies I bought:
And here are my hexagons:

Today I've been working on organising things. Started by doing very boring dusting in the lounge room, and washing clothes and nappies. But this afternoon I've been organising quilt stuff. I'm doing a quilt for my dear friend Lesley's birthday which was back in April. It's called Dancing Butterflies and is designed by Rosene Cox. Have done a lot of prep work and have sewed many strips and have now completed one square. I've been sorting the fabrics this afternoon and they are now stuck in their strips on the wardrobe doors in the craft room.
Really need to start drawing up the appliques so that I can stitch them at craft group.

I'm not doing well with my BOW project - am stuck on block 3. Need to just get going and do it - it's not hard. Hopefully it will be finished this weekend.

I've called it "Lindivine Designs" as I would like to create children's clothing and accessories. This is a bit of a way down the track at the moment though.
So, welcome to my blog!
