Finally Found It

We have finally moved into our new house and after unpacking many boxes and searching high and low I have finally found the USB cord for my camera and can now share some photos with you.
On the weekend I celebrated a birthday. I am part of a Fat Quarter birthday group with a lovely bunch of ladies. On your birthday you receive two fat quarters from everyone in the group.
These are the fat quarters that I have received so far. This year I have had a thing for red so I requested red and white fat quarters so I can make myself a red and white quilt. All these fat quarters are just gorgeous and even though there are a lot of different shades of red I think most of them will go together. Thank you so much ladies. It has been such a delight opening all the parcels over the last few days and has made my birthday last just a little bit longer.

I am also part of the Friends in Stitching blog group and on your birthday you receive fat eights of fabric and a block pattern to make a small quilt. I received these lovely Rural Jardin fabrics (one of my most favourite ranges). I can't wait to sit down and work out what I am going to make.


Our Friends in Stitching group recently did a Paper Bag Swap. Everyone was given a partner and you had to send that person two fat quarters, some embellishments and chocolate. Your partner then made something from what you sent them and then posted it back to you. These are the lovely gifts that Tereasa made for me. A sewing bag, sewing pouch to hold some scissors and needles and a cute little tissue packet holder. Thank you so much Teresa they are just gorgeous.


I finally have my sewing room in some sort of order and have today starting sewing again. I have really missed stitching whilst we moved so am enjoying getting back into it. Hopefully I will have some project photos to show you soon.
Catch you later
