A very busy Tuesday night!!!

We've had a busy night here tonight even though some of our "regulars" were missing in action.

I finally finished my hungry caterpillar quilt for the lovely Lillie!!! Now just to get organised and post it.

Victoria started work on her brow bands (for horses)... Very fiddly but looking great!!

And Kym ironed and measured and looked and looked and debated and finally is ready to cut!!

See you all again next week!!

Patterns, patterns, patterns

A few weeks ago, Debra pulled out the Club Accucutter and tried out the Rob Peter to Pay Paul cutting die.  She cut quite a few blocks, but only managed to sew 4, but at least that is progress & a pretty pattern.
 Now our super newby Kristine took her stunning Chevron quilt originally shown back here (on the 1st May) with her on a trip to The Quilter's Rest in Kingaroy and had a play on their long arm quilting frame.  Yes folks, she quited this one herself.
 Look at the cool sunshine and cloud pattern in the quilting
I am seeing a real gift here in Kristine.

Well done, keep it up.

Cecily's Stunning Finish & a Birthday

Gayle posted here on the 23rd July about Cecily's stunning embroider.
Last Tuesday 13 August, Cecil brought her FINISHED PROJECT.
Isn't that just GORGEOUS.  It is a project keeper/caddy that Cecily informed me will hold her cottons & hand sewing project. 

 Every surface has stitching
 and as lovely as the inside is, check out the outside.  Every little diamond square has a pearl bead sewn into it.  It is so tactile.  Debra said it reminded her of a faberge egg, with a 'surprise' on the inside.

 And as for a Birthday - Victoria came to craft to celebrate her Birthday.  As we did not know it was a special day, she even brought her own cake with her.

I am fairly sure I will get in trouble for posting these photos, but I think they show the real Victoria and her beautiful spirit and smile.

 and the yummy, yummy, yummy caramel mud cake.
We hope your enjoyed your Birthday night with us Victoria.

From afar!!!

So it's about time I posted something isn't it! 

I have actually been quite creative of late, I'm learning to crochet. The current project is for my lovely friend Tash's brand new baby girl!!! 

I purchased a lovely white muslin wrap and have embroidered pictures from Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar in the corners and a cute caterpillar in the centre of one side. 

I'm now crocheting an edge around it.

I'll try and take a photo of the whole thing when I'm done!!

Looking forward to hearing what you have all been up to! 

Love Em xx
