Woohoo! She sews!


I finally made a start on piecing the top for the Disappearing 9-Patch quilt I'm making for my brand new baby second cousin.

I've made 12 9-patch blocks, which are in the process of being sliced, diced and shuffled. Next, to sew them all back together again!

A great weekend here - went to a big fireworks show down by the lake last night and it was spectacular. It's been very hot during the day, but a balmy night was just the ticket for a picnic dinner followed by a wonderful pyrotechnics show. Romily was a little bit scared, but she came good in the end!

Find out about the job tomorrow, so fingers crossed!

What bright, pretty blocks! They make me think of all the grape hyacinths that are blooming in my garden. This is going to be a perfect baby quilt.

What pretty blocks! Can't wait to see them cut up and re-arranged. A fireworks display AND a picnic - what fun for you all. Good luck with the job opportunity - I'll be thinking good thoughts.

Yesterday I gave a baby quilt with this pattern to my three weeks old nephew. I will blog a pic of the finished quilt later today.
My version is a bit more colourful because I choose yellow for the bright patches and kids print for the dark patches.

I love the blue colours. Can't wait to see how the new squares turn out. Good Luck with this job you are going for - an extra pair of crossed fingers might help!
