Rainy day blues

It was a very wet day here yesterday, just perfect for a sew-in. The blues are Indigo Crossing by Minick and Simpson, a little impulse buy when I was in Melbourne last month and I decided they would make a lovely bag. The pattern is Teacher's pet by Sweet Jane's Quilting & Design. Lots of cutting and sewing but I know I am going to love it.
Here is the big pile of blocks ready for a lot of ironing before I can put them together! The material used is Mulberry Lane and the pattern is Disappearing 4 Patch.
Hope you could find a positive in the weather and spend your weekend sewing!

So warm

It was so warm this morning I just needed it on record! How good is this, right in the middle of winter!
On the sewing front I finally got my act into gear and started on a quilt for a future great niece (well it had better be!). Very happy with my points and it is all going together well.
Hope everyone has a great sewing weekend! I know I will

I bought this kit at the craft fair, so quick and easy to stitch.  Can't wait to put the borders on.

Craft Fair 2

Just popping back to show the lovely quilts that were on display at the DEC at the weekend.
Here is a compilation of some I liked.
 This quilt was beautiful the colours really shimmered.Not a great photo of it but hopefully you will get the idea!
This is my friend Faye's (no blog) quilt, she entered as a beginning quilter. The quilt was titled 'On the Plus Side' - clever. It is to go to the Dunalley Fire appeal when it is returned. I couldn't bear to give it away.
Just loved the Christmassy look of this quilt, the pointsettia material is lovely. 
I enjoyed looking at all the quilts wish I had taken more photos to share with you.
