More to share...

A granny square quilt for a very special little girl, just needs binding!

This is made from the Spin Cycle pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew, I used Basic Grey Kissing Booth.  The top is finished and is ready for quilting!

This was done to test a pattern for OTL Designs.  Top is finished ready for quilting.

This is a Schnibbles pattern from one of the books, but made with layer cakes instead of charm squares.  Needs a border and then it will be ready for quilting.  This will be for my Mum.

And there is still more to come!!

I'm back!

Did anyone miss me?

Well the sale of our new home (finally!) went through after weeks of delays and many sleepless nights!  it's hard to believe but we have been here just over 6 months now, it is funny because it feels so much like home that it feels like we have always lived here, yet I still pinch myself most days to make sure I am not dreaming, I love this house so much!  Oh plus I still have a garage full of boxes left to unpack :)

My old studio was a portable building in the front yard, in which I crammed my longarm, cutting table, sewing machine, computer, and all my stash and sewing equipment.  Now I have a large longarm room, a separate office, and a large sewing room and they are all inside the house - I am LOVING it!!!

Sewing wise I have kept busy!  I made these bags:

This is Dolcetto by Melly and Me.

And this is a Margo bag by Lazy Girl Designs.

This is Let's Twist Again by Ann Francene that was published in (I think!) Australian Country Craft.  This has been temporarily claimed by my daughter, with instructions that I can have it back once I have made her a pink version :)

This is a jumbo sized version of Pink Penguin's Lunch Bag -  I started with 50cm of the dress print fabric and quilted it first, then made it as big as possible.  It is a school sports bag for my daughter.  

I have more to show but I will save that for another post :)
