No sewing

I haven't had a chance to sew for ages.   So I thought I would show you what I have been doing.
Going away in the caravan, visiting our son, Josh  and his family, Em and Evelyn. Have been doing some hand stitching in the car while travelling hope to show you soon.

Took a break from a busy schedule and took our van to Stanthorpe for the weekend.

It was a cold night with a good fire.

We have been to Bundaberg to see our precious  little granddaughter. Big time waster....

Some cuddles before we left. ...... sad not living close by.

Went to a carnival at Burnett Heads.   Patchwork

A baby in blue and a finished Nundle quilt

I just have to share this photo of our beautiful granddaughter. Almost 5 weeks old here.

Poppy can't resist looking at her. ( 4 .5  weeks)

I had my first cuddle and feed ( 4 weeks )

Finally I have bound a beauty that has been sitting in my cupboard for a long time. I love the colours in this quilt. I though it may be a nice summer quilt for our bed...

Thanks to Kerry at "Cottage on the Hill" Nundle for helping choose such wonderful colours.

Nice and big almost to the floor

I have had this cushion for a long time but I thought I would share because it is so beautiful. I think it
looks great with this quilt

     This cushion was made by a lady in Toowoomba... a nice way to use granny's doilies. 

Have a nice day ......Good luck to all those back at school in any way tomorrow ....

Stitch a Long Finished for the Year

If you are in Chooky's Stitch a long you may have seen this already.

I mostly used Anni designed fabrics for this 
I have really enjoyed being a part of the 2013  "Stitch Along"   This is our last project.  A needle case by Anni Downs. I am really enjoying using the little sewing case as its sits on my knee perfectly while travelling in the car. 

The inside, something went wrong with the measuring and the  heart background it is  a little large...Ooops.

Some real buttons to fill the jar
A full set, project bag, pin cushion and needle case .

A very well used bag . Filled with some other Anni treasures.
