Basket

I tried my hand at a basket pattern I had bought last year using up left over fabric from another project. I had so much fun with it that I am thinking of making another but this time using the appliqué design from the original pattern which is more detailed and covers most of the front of the basket.

Walking Bag Update

This is the walking bag designed by Lessa Chandler I made last week for my lovely friend Shelley. On the 21st of this month she is having a knee replacement and I thought the bag would be very handy when on crutches. Shelley is always organising our little group with great days out, our yearly quilting crawl as well as our monthly stitching day at her house. Always inspiring us with her beautiful quilts and stitcheries.

                      

The side zip pocket is great for your  phone or purse.

Dave the Dachshund

My Tilda dachshund that I made for my granddaughter Jessica's 20th birthday. I found the pattern for 
Dave The Dachshund- Sew Magazine free download. At sew mag.co.uk
Hehe..she loved Dave so much when I gave him to her,not putting him down , and has asked if I could make more in different sizes, she wanted a real dachshund for her birthday but her mum said no as Jess is always out when not studying or working part time, so I made her a substitute.

Hannah's Heart

At my monthly Heritage group meeting today I managed to finished sewing the binding on Hannah's Heart - Table Runner by Melissa Grant  for one Day In May Patterns.
Almost forgot a BIG thank you to Christine from MacDonald's Patch for noticing I had sewn my bird panels sitting the same way instead of opposite before I started to quilt... whew... Saved me a lot of heartache. :)

                                

It matches my French General box that I made last month.

Another great quilt crawl, destination Albury. Eight like minded patchwork enthusiastic ladies in two cars headed off for a two day patchwork getaway. We had so much fun exploring all the lovely shops and filling our needs, wants and just because...lol....baskets. Kept forgetting to take photos (most of us are photo shy) here are a few I did take and my purchases.

Highlight was going to Carolyn's Quilting Room & Patchwork Shop in Wodonga


Albury Botanical Gardens


Carin checking out the scenery ...



Leigh Liz and Andrea stopping to smell the roses on our way back to the car. I must thank and add Liz was a fabulous driver. Andrea was lots of fun as my room buddy and Leigh was a great ...lol.. Navigator and kept us in fits with her comments about navigating with an iPad.



My purchases,starting to collect for a new project that I have my eye on.....lol...oh do I dare start another.....
