Lest We Forget

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Lest we forget

Has this ever happened to you?

Today for the first time ever I broke a blade in half!

Cutting 1 1/2" strips for my next project (sneak peak below) the blade suddenly snapped,luckily the only damage was the blade and the strip of fabric,which was luckily the White Sashing.

This line of fabric is Whimsy By Michael Millar Isn't it divine!
This is my Block 4 for the Jelly Roll Quilt Along,Yeah I know it's put together wrong,but I'm not fussed, I think it still looks good.

That's what you get when you don't concentrate and just sit down and sew!

I haven't started the Hexagons yet,I ran out of white thread so mercy dash to the shops.
I took my mum along for the dash,and we did the normal thing of walking round looking at everything, wanting to buy lots.
Then went home had a cuppa and had 'show and tell' with what mum has been working on,I will take my camera around and get some snaps as her work is amazing especially her embroidery.

That's where I get my Love of sewing from (and being a perfectionist)
I will post the hexagons when done,

I am Alive!

Hi there,
I have just spent the last week in bed with a fever so, I haven't done any sewing :(
But I am feeling human again so today I plan to do my Quilt along blocks so I will post when finished

Hushabye Baby Quilt

Today I quilted a baby quilt made from a pattern at

The quilt went together in a matter of hours, the quilting took the longest but was a lot of fun. I have quilted in a funky feather pattern E2E.

I have even got the binding sewn down,I know I'm even shocked!
I'm off now to sew together the strips for the Hexagon Quilt Along,Julie at Jaybird posted the instructions early YAY!, I love weekends that are productive!

Meet the Girls!

This is the Stitchery Quilt I am working on at the moment.

It's a pattern by Cinderberry Stitches called Sublime Season.
There's nine stitchery in the quilt all containing Birds.
Check out her Blog, all of her Bird and Bug stitchery are Divine!
As I finish the Blocks I will post photos of my progress.

It's a Good Friday

Today I have finished the Binding on my Merry & Bright Jelly Roll Quilt.
This quilt was made for Xmas 2009 so I'm not that late :)
It's made using Jelly Roll strips only.
One full Jelly Roll of Merry & Bright and 1/2 a Cherry Red Moda Plain Jelly Roll for the Sashing,Borders and Binding.

The backing of my quilt is made up of leftovers, this is the first pieced backing I have done, and I'm very happy with it.
I have quilted it with a holly and berry design.

Kelli my sis n law and I made a pact that this was the year for ufo's to be gone,we also said no more buying of fabric unless we finished a project. (Oops,I have failed that part)
So I can happily say that I have finished another project, only __ left to go!
Too scared to count!
Now I'm off to do Block 3 of the quilt along.
