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.

Cutting cutting cutting........

Well I think I have just about had enough cutting out for a while, time to get back into the fun part...Stitching. I spent a nice wet Australia Day and last night cutting fabric for Gardeners Journal and Tis the Season. I love the colours in Gardeners Journal and I am hoping to start stitching Block A today. Hah I have a 13 year old girls birthday sleep over....dont think there will be much stitching going on, although there is bound to be no sleeping either.

I had bought fabric for TTS before christmas and then I wasnt so sure of the colours. Turns out my Mum loves them so I bought some more. I never need an excuse to go shopping. Thus for the stitch a long with friends Susan (Thimble Stitch) and Ann (Lavender Blue Stitches) I will be doing two TTS quilts.

 One in nice rusty reds for my Mum
 And this unusual green for me.
Have a great weekend all.
Happy stitching. xox


  1. Wow, you will be busy!! I hope you bring them all along to share with us at Nundle. I hope those noisy 13yr old girls let you do a little stitching today LoL xx

  2. Love your colour choices for TTS - it might be hard to decide which one to keep! You will love doing GJ - it has the best stitcheries. I'm taking mine to Nundle for show & tell. Have fun (?!?) at the sleepover.

  3. All looks great Sam. Now back to the stitching :)

  4. Hi Sam,
    I love your stitcheries, they look great. You're going to be busy with all that yummy material. Enjoy!!
    Regards, Anita.

  5. Both will be lovely with those fabrics ... the green one will be very interesting to watch grow.

  6. Your fabrics all look wonderful, I especially love the TTS greens, it will look fabulous. I'll look forward to seeing your progress. Happy stitching!

  7. getting all that cutting done is great.......always make the job later much easier........
