Scrapping ...

So that I can track down my missing sewing mojo, I decided to just piece away on something mindless, but also fun. My little box of scrappy stars came out to play:

They're always fun to mess around with, and I love to reminisce over favourite fabrics. Soon it's going to be necessary to raid the scrap boxes for more bits and pieces - let's not have too much repetition.

And when my mojo strikes with force, I've got the fabrics and pattern ready for Camo's aviation themed quilt. I'll share when I'm busy cutting.

Chatter soon :-)

First picture ...

Hi there friends, I've been a slacker this week - seriously - can't settle to anything properly. But I do have something I want to share ...

I finally have a picture of my quilt with her ribbons!!

My little brother and his family visited with my quilt and got a happy snap. Thank you Timmy! The pic is a bit grainy, but isn't it fun to see? :-) I know some of my other friends have been and taken some pictures too, but I don't have them yet - I'll share when I can.

I plan to go to the show on Friday with Camo and I'll be able to get my own pictures then. His school has the day off for the show. It will probably be super chaotic, but totally worth it!

Chatter soon! xox

Great news!!

You've seen this picture before, but I'll share it again, because I have the best news!! ...

My Mrs Billings quilt placed first in it's category at the Royal Adelaide Show! And it also won Best in Section!! I'm just so happy - beyond thrilled actually!! Thank you all for your kind words while I've been working on it, so much appreciated :-)

I'm not sure if I remembered to share what I actually named my quilt ... its called: Mrs Billings meets a French General.

Almost sounds racy doesn't it? :-)

A new beginning ...

Last night I got my act together and decided to try sewing something. I'm really winging it here, but I've started on a cover for my sewing machine.

My machine comes with a cover of sorts - it's more for travelling. But because I have the machine lowered in the sewing cabinet all the time - and I don't ever close the cabinet - the cover is kind of too tall (and also not very pretty).

I don't know if this little project will work out as I imagine it - I'm making it up as I go along, but it's looking quite pretty at the moment. My inspiration is here - a project by CJ Tinkle. I had pinned an entirely different cover by the same lady on Pinterest, but the pin leads me to a forum rather than her website, so I don't think there is a tutorial. However, you can click here to see my pin.

So, it's safe to assume that if you don't see my sewing machine with her new cover in the next month or so, I probably haven't been happy with how the cover came out. I will persevere though, because I really want one!

Chatter soon xox
