Spring Time at Last!

Spring Is In The Air!
I may not get much sewing done today as the sun is shining and it is actually warm in Gisborne. It is a good day for planting out those few pot plants I just had to buy. I love this time of year when the bulbs are flowering!

First time user of the accuquilt machine.

Today I had a go at the accuquilt GO. Wow is all I can say. In just thirty minutes, and being a first time user I had cut out 90,  3.5 tumblers. So quick and accurate.

 Now all I need to do is arrange them ,in a pleasing manner, and sew them together.

Under The Sea Quilt Challenge.

Wow I just found out where to type some text. Just click the mouse in the square here. What a nut I am! Now to put in a photo. Mmmmm.

This is the table runner I swapped for a challenge in July. The theme was," Under The Sea." It involved hand applique for the ladies, machine applique for the fish and 1/4 square triangles for the sea background. The picture is a bit out of focus, I am not a very good photographer!

Kangaroos abound

A Wedding Gift.

This is a fat quarter quilt I made for a friend as a wedding gift earlier in the year. I had it professionally quilted by Kerry of Macedon with an all over design of hearts. I was very pleased with the finished quilt.

Hello Blogger World

This is my very first day as a Blogger.
This is a table runner I made for my son and his partner who are now living in Hong Kong. It will remind them of Australia!
