I have been slow in posting my progress with QMC 2013 quilt. I have been hand quilting block by block.
Today I  am  continuing with the hand quilting and joining in with Chooky and friends to celebrate the Chookshed's 2nd birthday.

Lucy Boston 2nd block

Here we are block 2 of Lucy Boston's Patchwork of the Crosses. I am enjoying stitching these, they are sooooo very relaxing. Unlike Lucy I am not EPP but hand stitching which at this stage suits me especially after just finishing Confetti.

Happy stitching.........

Mill Rose Friends

Yesterday I joined in The Mill Rose group gathering at Ballan. It was lovely meeting for the first time and catching up with lots of blogging friends. some stitching, lots of laughing and chatting. The swap theme was a sewing set,which saw beautiful work and lovely swaps shared. Thanks Shez and Melody for making it such a fun day.

                                                                                                                                                   I was blown away with my beautiful swap gifts made by Shez. 

Thanks Shez I just love the sewing set you made and I was lucky enough to draw.


                          All the beautiful swaps made by the gorgeous and talented group.

                                                           Happy stitching....,.

FNWF last night, it was lovely to join in with so many others.Thank you Cheryll for gathering us all together.
I managed to finish this lap quilt that I had prepared yesterday. I actually bought the blue Japanese fabric over two years ago and then went onto other projects and forgot about it. I teamed it up with the grey fabrics left over from cats and dogs quilt that I finished last year. All in all I am very pleased that's more fabric gone out of my stash.  

Happy quilting.........
