Gosh….its been a while

fruitfulHandsCherry

Hello dear peeps…I got that from someone

else and thought it was ok to use.

I think I would rather be called peeps than guys.

Guys are blokes and gals are girls. Well that's my opinion.

Hmmm…well its been a while since I last blogged and I

have done a few things since my last post.

One of the things I have done is get a new car (second hand)

we are really pleased with it and it feels and looks like new.

Nice to have a bit of luxury while driving.

Also we went to the AQM in Melbourne last weekend and saw heaps and heaps

of gorgeous new designs and things coming out for 2014.

Loved it all and could have spent thousands!! No kidding!!

I did spend a bit tho and one of those things is a new quilting frame for me…Yay!!

I am so excited about this and it will be delivered in a couple of weeks…

so you know what I will be doing then don't you?

The quilt on it isn't mine as I got the pic off the net.

Also got a heap of new Charm Packs which are available in my store…

these wont be available in the US until next year…how we get them early is a mystery.

I have a sneak peek at a new design I have done

DPP_0006 (2) (Large) 

It has turned out lovely and was such fun to stitch.

Do you like doing stitcheries? I do, and any hand sewing

like binding quilts, especially at night times while watching the telly.

Happy sewing everyone and hugs to all….

Where has the time gone?

I am amazed at how long it is since I last blogged …… over a month!! Gosh!!

I won’t make any promises and say I will blog more because I really don’t like breaking promises.

So I will just say that I hope to blog more often than what I am now.

I haven’t even done my usual blog hop lately.

I just feel I need to sit and hand sew and not look at a screen. Is that so bad?

Well …. since I last blogged I have been over to WA to visit my son and his wife to help with looking

after their darling son while they had their second child. They had a boy and he is beautiful!!

He doesn’t cry and all he does is sleep and eat and sleep and eat. A truly gorgeous baby!!

He was born on the 2nd of July and they named him Sebastian Ollie and all went well with the birth and his

big brother Jasper loves him to bits. He wants to kiss him all the time .. so cute!!

I can’t show you any pics as my son and his wife are against showing on the net.

While I was there I also was able to give lots of cuddles to my daughters gorgeous 2 boys and her darling little girl.

Gosh my grandkids are all gorgeous!! Loved cuddling them all. Loved cuddles from my gorgeous kids too.

Since I have been back, I have been doing quite a bit of hand sewing and this has enabled my rear end to enlarge!!

Oh dear!! I must get enthused about walking again.

But I have enjoyed the sewing.

I have sewn all these and several other blocks together to make a large table runner and its now

waiting for me to put batting and back it and then quilt it.

Another project I have completed is a new design …. this one has a few different methods in it and I will be

able to show you soon. But here is a sneak peek. This is a Table Topper and a nice size one too.
