I have been sewing!

Yes I have…..I haven't been blogging much and I have so missed you all!!
It was my darling daughter Zoei’s birthday last week
Happy Birthday gorgeous girl !!
and also my Mothers….gosh she would have been 82 years old.

I told you a couple of blog posts ago that I was sewing up Spin City by Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co. …well this is as far as I have got…I need to sandwich it with the quilt batting and backing fabric and then I am going to do an all over meandering machine quilting design on it.
I just don't know why I haven't been blog hopping lately and I guess just life has been leading me in other areas.

This is a Christmas Table runner for a special lady and it is straight but for some reason the photo makes it look all out of shape and crooked.
But I have been sewing and creating and writing up patterns and getting these and the projects off to the different magazines. So I have had to focus on these or I would have made lots of mistakes and not be able to get them into the magazines.
Also a few Framed Hexagons have gone in the post to go to their new homes….

Gosh, you have been busy, Vicki. Looks really good - the quilt top is doing well so far and I love the hexies - both the ones you received and the ones you've sent off to other partners. That's one swap I should look into. Take care. Hugs from Donna in Brisbane.

You certainly have a lot of amazing things going on there. The quilt is just wonderful. I haven't been doing much blog hopping myself...trying to get some in tonight.

Love all your little hexies. Wish I could draw. What's in my head just never makes it to paper looking anything like what I dreamed. That's OK though, I have other talents I can share. Someday if you find the time maybe you could put together a batch of your little designs with a how to make the framed hexie. A 'Vase of Flowers' with those little designs in the center would be a pretty wall hanging. Thanks for all pictures and inspiration you share with the world.
