Chookyblue mentioned a little sampler of mine she saw...it is 1.5 "x 2"...done on a silk gauze...before my eyesight went! Maree might like to do this one!
I think this was a design by Piccanini Patchwork.
Some sugary sweet pinks to do a baby quilt.

Still working away on the butterfly quilt I started a fortnight ago at Nundle.
Having changed one fabric, I am now having difficulty with fabric selection for the inner triangles on my whirligig block. No doubt I will work it out, but I have set it aside to have a "creative break". I am enjoying the hand piecing though! The support of some other ladies doing this block has been invaluable...suerossbom.blogspot.com.

so today when I went into my sewing room, I had a nasty shock!
I was also lucky enough to win a pattern from Natalie at Cinderberry Stitches...
and I have finished this baby quilt top.
So, a rather productive day...good for the soul...
I hope your day has been a happy one...

Previously my family believed I was a tad loopy & referred to them as my "imaginary friends".
It was a bit hard to know where to start...all of these gorgeous fabrics & so much more.
I began a project that has been lurking on my noticebord for 9 years...since a workshop with Sue Cody...I am having fun with these fabrics...
I will post better pics as it develops...
Ladies ...you are beautiful...thanks for sharing a great day with me...you are the best!

On the way home we stopped at Pokolbin for a quick lunch...we couldn't resist these lovely biscuits! I will have to be extra strict with my walking!!!
Here is my collection of fabrics (phase 1) ready to take to Nundle...I am not exactly sure what I am doing...there are a couple of ideas bouncing around in my head...brights or 30's will be the palette I think.
I have also been fiddling with this gorgeous fabric from MO...Cathy did a beautiful job with it...I am leaning towards a classic look...lots of doodles on paper...I am getting there!
