Wow, cant believe it has been that long since I posted. I have had alot going on in my life and I know time flies...but geez!!!!! I have alot of things on the go at the moment (too many I think). But I get a tad bored if I stick to the same thing all the time so I have a few quilts on the go plus a wallhanging and tonight I decided to cut out hexagons...what is wrong with me :-) Here are some blocks I have been stitching. Some things French plus the beautiful redwork. I promise to finish something soon..lol

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 Another moving Anzac Day. I will never grow weary of Dawn Services and supporting our veterans and servicemen and women. Extra special this year as my son Dale read the student prayer at the march. http://youtu.be/7b2xnaIGw4Y
Just spent a fantastic weekend at Country Hart with Helen Stubbings and Melissa Grant. A big thankyou to Robyn Welsh for hosting another wonderful weekend. We received some beautiful projects to create, did the chicken dance and had a lot of laughs.
April has flown by in a blur. Where is this year going. I have had a busy month. I have just completed Winsome Hearts, a Hugs N Kisses pattern by Helen Stubbings. Here is a photo before the binding and the quilting. Ill post an updated photos soon. I love how it turned out.

In February I made a very rash decision to do a University Degree. Im always looking to learn new things, so I thought "why not" and jumped on in and enrolled before I had time to talk myself out of it. So now on top of working full time, Im doing a Bachelor of Accounting and trying to find time to sew. After 4 weeks of this so far, I think I have found my routine...who needs to do housework heh..Thats what I have put on the back burner..lol. I have finally finished the 2nd Thankful quilt I was making, looks lovely in my bedroom. Ive incorporated a little Roses Bloom into this one.

Im up to making my third block of this quilt and it is such a joy to make. Each block is so diverse, you are doing different things all the time. I love things with dimension which is why I love Melissas work so much. Here is the first block I made, I am making two quilts in different colours so you can see the colour interpretations.

Now that the silly season is over, where on earth did those couple of months go. Despite the heat and the busy season, I have managed to do some sewing. I made a few things for Christmas gifts, I am really enjoying printing on fabric and making them into small bowl fillers and cushions, they look really nice when done. I also finished off a Union Jack Quilt, need to make a nice cushion to match now, I love the Moda Etchings range, it is lovely. I made my postcard stitchery into a cushion, I love this stitchery and really need to make some more as it has turned out lovely. Finally I have started a new project, I am making One Day In May Creations, BOM of Thankful quilt, I am making two at once and have just finished Block 1 and love it already. Hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas and best wishes for 2012.
