Lots of Show and Tell Part 2

Finally I have finished my Fat Quarter Shop 2009 Mystery Block of the Month. I think it took just as much time to make all the sashing strips and stars as it did to make the individual blocks but I am sooo happy with how it has all come together. I absolutely love the fabrics (Glace) and star blocks are my all time favourite. I am now going to bundle it up to send to the Quilters Coop at Cowra to be quilted.


Last Tuesday I headed down to Singleton to the movies to see Sex in the City 2 The Movie. I ended up going on my own as my girlfriend had to cancel at the last minute with sick kids. I felt like a bit of a nigel sitting there on my own but there were a few others doing the same thing so it was not so bad. I really enjoyed the movie - lots of laughs - but have to admit that it was not as good as the first movie. After the movie was finished I headed to Busy Needles for a little fabric therapy. They always have a large range of the latest Moda fabrics so I was able to pick up some yardage of Rural Jardin (just love this range) to make a mug bag (yes another one) for my Aunt for her birthday as well as fabric to make a bag and coin quilt using a jelly roll that I purchased from South West Rocks a few months ago.
I am going to use the blue and pink fabric to make the mug bag and the other two pieces will be used to make the bag.

I am now off to make some invitation for DD's 9th birthday next Saturday.
Hope you all enjoyed your long weekend.

Chat soon
