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.

Fabric fabric fabric......

I have started collecting my fabric selection for Tis the Season. Cant wait to start now. I bought these on a very successful trip to Rainbow Patchwork in Lismore. I took my first two quilts, The Homespun Stitch a long - A Faithful Friend and Woodland Magic to be quilted. Much as I really would love to have a go at hand quilting them myself I dont think I am capable of that just yet. So I spent a very long time agonising over patterns and backing fabric. I will be sure to blog some pictures when they are done.

Below is just some of the fabric I bought at a garage sale on the weekend. What a find!!!! $70 for the lot I brought home bags and bags of fabric. These photos were taken while I was trying to fold and sort through the massive bags. Lots of great fabrics I cant wait to start using. Have a great week. Happy Stitching.
