Some more finishes!

Remember these two designs?  I have put them on my website, so patterns are now available for purchase. I love working with felt and was quite delighted with this project:

Flitting Free Pincushion and Scissor Keep available here.

And here's a bright apron to lift the spirits in the kitchen:

 Feeling Fruity is available here.

Our two grandsons have now gone home.  There was plenty for them to do  - riding at the park, swimming and grassslides at the beach, seeing the Smurf movie, making things from the recycle box, playing Bobs and making huge layouts with a train set. In between caring for them, I managed to get this completed:


Ruby and Ivory silk and red roses - sigh!

Since then, two more projects have been completed - just instructions to write up.  It is so good to FINISH things - four commissions this month!  However, in the process, I went looking in a crate that I try not to lift the lid on too often - and wish I hadn't because there's an awful lot of PASSES in there - (Projects at a Stand Still)!  Oh well ....

Now, have a look at this gorgeous adaptation of my Gifts of Grace free pattern from last year:


Susie used eight of the blocks as the corners of her quilt:





Those blues are just lovely, aren't they!

Thanks, Susie, for sharing your lovely work.

Here's some great news - the fabulous Australian Magazine, Homespun, have gone digital! An annual digital subscription can be purchased here


This is fabulous news for my overseas friends, as it has been so difficult to purchase the magazine outside Australia.  But not now ....!!!

There's more excitement in our household this week - my husband will be presented with his Order of Australia Medal by the Governor of Queensland at Government House on Friday. Our three children in Australia are able to attend. Yeah! 

Happy Stitching!
