So much to say!

Righto, I've been meaning to post since the Market on Saturday but it just hasn't happened so now I have so much to tell you!!
The market was great, I bought a kit from Jodi aka RicRac so at some stage plan on making these. I had a coffee and chat with Julie from Provincial Patch. She has the most infectious laugh and encouraged spending - I like the girl! I met several other bloggers including Curlypops, PatchAndi and Mary. Was really great to see these ladies in the real world. Pretty good market too. Can you tell I was distracted by meeting people? :0)

I've also been stitching away and managed to finish The Commish (commissioned) quilt. I'm really happy with how it turned out. Now for some quilting....

I've been fabric shopping. Again. Bought some goodies from Ballarat Patchwork where they are having a sale. Oh, I love a sale!
The other week my sweet aunt Pam gave me some keys....
I love them. The new ones are second from the left kind of brass looking. They fit right in don't they?

AND.... I won a giveaway. Woo hoo!!!! Some Free Market Fancy fabrics are heading to me.

Right, I think I am all caught up. Til next time,
Happy stitching,

  1. Time flies when you spend entire market days chatting with lovely crafty bloggers!

  2. Loved reading your newsy blog and see what you have been up to. Sounds like you had fun meeting your blog friends.
    Your commish quilt looks great. Nice colours!!
    Bought some nice fabric and also had a win. Lucky you.

  3. Commish is lovely - very fresh-looking. Well done you.

    Sounds like you enjoyed the market - all that and winning fabrics too. Lucky you.

  4. You have been busy! Great to finally meet, we have to get together again one day. Love the quilt, love the fabric and the keys, what a cool idea to hang them like that. I need to rummage around and find all my old ones and do something with them now I've seen yours.

  5. Hi, this is my first visit to your blog and I enjoyed seeing your pics and reading 'the news'! I read somewhere else that Ballarat Patchwork had a sale on so popped online to do a mail order. As well as far too many other things, I bought shrinking sheet- have you ever used that? I haven't but like the idea of it. Oh and I bought Jodie's 'Parsley and Beet' pattern- they are cool. Hmm, sometimes that 'one click and you're away' shopping is FAR TOO EASY!!

  6. congrats on the win...those quilts are so pretty

  7. Great catching up with you , that quilt looks lovely !
