Finally the sun came out and I got round to taking some pics of my City Sampler blocks.
I’m up to no. 70 now so only 13 or something more to catch up..ha ha! Plus I’ve reached the Squares section and I can see the magic 100 calling to me in the distance, yipee.
I won’t bore you with ALL of them at the mo. Let’s just get halfway so here we go up to 65.
(Just realised I haven’t done 55 – 58 yet, will have to dig them out another time…aaaand somehow I missed 61 too, whoops!)
Ok, so November kind of disappeared into a black hole somewhere, not sure how that happened! But happiness of happiness I have remembered to get down to making some December goals which always keeps me on track.
I did manage to get
some stuff done last month. This being the main thing……….
Before getting into my current WIPs I just want to share the beautiful textile Artist’s Trading Card that I received the other day as part of the recent swap organised by Ali @
Very Berry Handmade.
Isn’t it gorgeous?
We’ve had a beautiful day here today so it was the perfect time for some fabrics photos.
In amongst the many birthdays we’ve been celebrating recently was MINE……this meant
a lot a few fabric purchases were in order!!
On the big day itself we ventured out to
Abakhan where I found these beauties:
Well, it’s about time isn’t it?!
Eventually I finished the quilt and finally there are some photos, yay!
This month has been busy to say the least:
4 birthdays ( including one 70th and one 1st)
1 school holiday
2 trips away
and a number of projects to finish
However somewhere amongst this my
Constellations quilt was produced…..
Finally I managed to snap a quick pic of my constellations quilt top!!
And when I say quick I mean quick…..I only just managed it. After only four snaps it started raining ……………. AGAIN!
It’s still going today and will be for the rest of the week. Why oh why!

My lovely fabrics arrived this week from
Pink Chalk Fabrics. Here they are….
Initially I was going to go for lots of fat quarters, but decided against that idea and opted instead to buy some larger quantities so I can make a few clothes and things.
The mustardy flower one is going to be a staple dress (I think) and the gorgeous
Lisa Congdon – Land That Never Was is going to be an It’s a Cinch Tote. Continue reading
So we have a winner for the
I searched out the random number generator and it came up with this…
The lucky winner is Julie Taylor who said……….
“Well done on getting so many followers. My favourite fabrics are anything organic (I notice you’ve a couple in the giveaway!!!), but Liberty comes a close second. I follow on Bloglovin”
I hope you enjoy your organic fabrics, I’m sure you will use them to make something lovely. They will be on their way soon!!!
Thanks all very much for your comments and recommendations I will be keeping them in mind. There were definitely a few clear favourite fabrics not surprisingly Liberty rated very high.
Hoping to be back soon with an update on the
constellations quilt…fingers crossed!
This month I have one rather large-ish goal and a couple of little ones.
My main goal is to finish my
nephew’s quilt. We’re going over the end of the month so it should must be done by then.
I don’t think that’s too big an ask as I have it all worked out in my mind which is the main thing!
I can’t believe this week…it has to be my luckiest week ever!!
Not only did I win one giveaway, but I won ANOTHER with
A Lovely Year of Finishes. I know amazing right?! So now I have $15 to spend at Stitches ‘n’ Giggles on some more beautiful fabric. The excitement is getting a bit too much for me now….I’m not sure I’m going to cope!
Anyway there’ll be more on that another day it’s time to give something back so onto my giveaway.
First a step back in time……
My first quilt.
