Not too sure why….

When I read my blog what ever I post is ok but the headings or the other bits are all teeny tiny. I noticed it was like that on another blog as well. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Just want to show you the Row Along I did with A Bee In My Bonnet. I really love what Lori Holt does… she is an amazing designer.

I haven't finished it but have done all the quilt top and label.. next is quilting it. yay!!

Getting excited…..

froggy

In my last post I said I have something to tell you…well it is that I am off to Adelaide for the AMQ Festival. I cannot wait as Judi Madsen and Jenny Doan are going to be there and they are two very special ladies who I admire.

I love how Judi does machine quilting.. Its truly amazing and to have a lesson or two from her will be great. Jenny has terrific tutorials on patchwork and to watch her on YouTube is always a favourite past time of mine.

When I am there in Adelaide I am going to be staying with my dearest friend Dawn and that is very exciting as well.

We are going to the AMQ Festival together along with Wendy and Natalie and who ever else goes.

So that is my excitement :)

This is my little cutie – Bella :) She is a little dog but is just the best dog :) Such a cutie :) Just thought I would show you her.

Just a few things to show you ….

I hope you like lots of piccies cause I have a few to show you…
I want to show you what design I did for the Let’s Get Stitched weekend we had in Melbourne.
I called it Autumn Rose and lots of the ladies loved it.
Summer Love I stitched the embroidery design with Aurifil Threads Ne. 12 but it can be done in your favourite threads.

I have been doing A Bee In My Bonnets sew along and really enjoyed sewing this little quilt. I find its great as I can use up my scraps. 10256382_10202635782430581_7728632935212853321_n

I am rather proud to show you that my design has been published in the currant issue of Homespun magazine.
I really loved sewing this and designing it and Susan was excited to be able to publish it. I think she wanted to keep it lol. Thanks for sending it back to me Susan :)

I had to have little Lady Bugs…some call them Lady Birds and also I crocheted a frill around the flower centres for a 3D effect. If you don’t crochet then just do appliqué.

As some of you know, I have got myself a new quilting frame and a new sewing machine just for being on the frame to quilt with.
This is my first quilt I done with it..  I have done some quilting on my domestic sewing machine but to have a frame is very exciting!
I just did an all over squiggle and didn't get frustrated like I do on my domestic one - much more room!!

Another thing I indulged in was making this cute little elephant. I have got other felt colours but just haven't got to making any more as yet.    10403252_10202654884228114_4405072408637131947_n
Well I hope you all are having a fab week and creating lots and finding lots to excite you. I have some exciting news to tell you but will tell you in my next blog post.
Hugs to all….
