About Me

My photo
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.

Woodland Magic

 I found a new gorgeous fabric store close to home. Yippee. Rainbow Patchwork in Lismore, they have some beautiful fabrics. I selected these to use in Woodland Magic a Natalie Ross project. this will be a gift for a work colleague who is soon to be a Mum for the second time.
I have just started to applique the tree into the quilt background. This is the first time I have done machine applique & I am loving how fast you can see progress. I am also loving my new machine, a great new toy.Tomorrow I am leaving on a cruise to The Whitsundays, very excited. I am being good & haven't packed any stitching so it will have to wait until I return. Have a good week. Happy stitching.
