It's Been a While

It has been a while since my last post. These school holidays have been very busy and I have not gotten as much sewing done as I would have liked. We have been to Sydney for a mad few days of sight seeing (see my next post), have been busy with the kids, cleaning house and working.
This is what I have managed to get done

I have sewn together the first block for my A Christmas Story quilt. I am doing blanket stitch for the applique and have finished the partridge in a pear tree block and have just started the singing angels.

Have stitched the teacups for a teacup bag which Caron, Raelee and I are making as a group project.

This fabric I ordered from the Fat Quarter Shop when they were having their sale. It is from the Crazy 8 range by moda.

On our way home from Sydney my wonderful husband made a slight detour to the Craft Depot at Pennant Hills. What a fantastic shop and what a huge range of fabric. I was quite tired after our busy couple of days and found it very hard to get my head around what fabric I needed for what but I did see these and loved them.
Hopefully when the kids go back to school things will slow down a bit (ha in my dreams!!) but I will keep on plodding along.
Chat soon
