About Me

I started stitching a few years ago thanks to a very dear friend. She has encouraged and taught me so much. I am the Mum of three great kids who I love dearly. I love to stitch in my spare time and even though I am a newbie I enjoy it very much.

What a week

It has been a huge week. I hadn't been able to get back to my quilt top for over a week & spent most of the week finishing off some unfinished projects. I had two wall hangings I bought at the quilt show in Sydney about 8 years ago. They are finally finished & my girls are probably too old to want them now, but at least they are off the UFO list.

Next I attempted to finish my 12 Days of Christmas. I finished stitching it almost a year ago. It was given to me by my very dear friend Ann to fill in my time while my son was undergoing cancer treatment in Brisbane. I taped it to the window & stitched away at the hospital for hours on end. Unfortunately I have traced & stitched it crooked and no matter how hard I try I can't get it straight on the background fabric. It is finished but I am cranky with myself for not taking more care. I was very new to stitching back then & will certainly have another go at that project.

Saturday came & finally I got time to sit and complete the quilt top for my Homespun stitch a long. I am very happy with it. Now i just have the dilemma of how to quilt it.

Then last night I started stitching the gorgeous angel for my block keeper from the wonderful Jukejema retreat in August. I began putting the cover together today and i am looking forward to getting back into this project next weekend.

It is been a great weekend for achieving some progress and I am enjoying my stitching enormously at the minute. I will finish off a few projects and am keen to start another big one. Until next time happy stitching to everyone.
